This is so effective, that you won’t believe your eyes… or your wallet. It’s quite simply, the most ingenious idea for a keepsake gift that I’ve seen in a long while and it will have busy parents breathing a sigh of relief, knowing they have a go-to gift that also tracks your kiddo’s artistic development!
The very smart and crafty Carla from Small & Friendly has posted a tutorial on how to achieve the wonderful art piece above, using your child’s very own artwork. It’s as simple as:
1. Buying a marker especially formulated for drawing on ceramics (here’s one we sourced locally – it comes in nine colours).
2. Letting the kid go to town on the outside of the bowl (not recommended on the inside).
3. Allowing the ink to dry for twenty-four hours.
4. Baking the bowl at 150 degrees for thirty-five minutes.
Yes, it really is that easy! make sure you check out the Small & Friendly blog piece for more personalised gift ideas for family and friends, using your child’s creative spark!
