Porcelain Ornaments

Materials and Tools:

porcelain ornament blank
embossing powder
metallic ink
rubber stamp
porcelain paint pen
spray matte sealer


1. Use an ornament blank, a rubber stamp, metallic embossing powder and a heat gun to create an elegant gilded, raised ornament. Working over a file folder (so you can funnel excess powder back into the jar), stamp the rubber stamp with embossing ink and sprinkle embossing powder on the wet ink. Tap off excess powder. Heat with an embossing or heat gun until the embossing powder has melted. The heat setting process will take longer on porcelain than it does on paper. Brush markers will give the stamped design a soft color.

2. Add a message to the back of the ornament with a porcelain paint pen. Let cure for 24 hours.

3. Spray the ornament with a matte-finish sealer for lasting durability. Attach a ribbon for a hanger, or epoxy a magnet to the back. Add a tag.
