We came up with something new, the DIY kit! Make your own mug, birth tile or write something personal on an already existing Delft blue piece. With the porcelain markers of Edding and earthenware of Heinen Delfts Blauw, you feel like a real master painter.
With these markers it is now possible to personalize your own Delft blue item. For example, make yourself a Delft blue ceramic birth tile with our pre-painted tile, where you can fill out the name, date of birth, time, weight, place etc. yourself.
We have already laid out the lines for you on the mug. You can start colorizing the mug immediately. But, do you want to make a real Delft blue mug? Make sure you leave the edges against the blue lines to white. This is one of the characteristics of a real Delft blue piece.
After you have cleaned the mug with a degreaser, you can then get started with coloring. Make sure you do not touch the outside of the mug with your fingers. The surface becomes greasy and then the ink adheres less to the earthenware.
It is possible to use multiple colors over each other.
Of course it is also allowed to color outside the lines, and add a text or add extra decorations.
When you are done with colors, you have to let the mug dry for 15 minutes before it can enter the oven. 25 minutes at 160 degrees celcius.
After 25 minutes you take it out of the oven and the mug is ready. Of course he has to cool down, but after that you can use it right away. The mug can now even be put in the dishwasher!
