All you need are a few essential materials to get started. I found a tea set at a local thrift shop and scored two saucers for $1.99 and two cups for $2.99. Major score! For paint colors, I used Pebeo Porcelaine 150 in Turquoise and a Pebeo Porcelaine 150 pen in black. Of course, you can get as creative as you’d like with colors, but I think these look smashing together!
From there, you’ll need a paintbrush, tissue paper and a jar of water. That’s it! Apartment Therapy has some awesome how-to instructions for how to create the pattern, but if you like to doodle, why not try it free-hand? You’ll be guaranteed a unique, custom look that your guests will eye with envy. It would also make a perfect Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day gift for your significant ones.
