It was the only plate I could find to try out my new Sharpie pens. Apparently if you decorate a plain ceramic plate or mug using a Sharpie, bake it in the oven at 180oC for 30mins it fixs and becomes permanent. Seems to good to be true so my Christmas plate is baking as I type! I will let you know how it gets on!
I am going to be on a charity shop hunt as I buy up every white mug or plate I can find to scribble on!
