There are many types of ceramic paint. Ask your craft supplier, but the ones I use are great as they don't come off when hand washing and it is safe to eat food off it. Make sure you get these ones if you intend to use your bowl they are a little more expensive but you have the memory there for ever which is great.


  • China bowl
  • Ceramic Paints
  • Paint Brush


  1. Paint Picture or pattern in the centre of the bowl.
  2. Paint a border this one is in yellow but what ever colour the child wishes.
  3. Dry paint as per instructions. My ones you bake in oven to set it and then it does not ever wash off.
  4. Wrap it up and give it to mum on mothers day.


Suitable for any age to do.
