You will need: plain white crockery, paper, pencil, ceramic paints, paintbrush.
Time needed: 10 minutes
Practise your design on paper until you are happy with it. Freehand geometric designs look effective and are easy to do. Make sure the crockery is clean and dry before you start. Paint on your design and leave to dry. Some ceramic paints are fixed by baking the crockery in the oven - follow the manufacturer's instructions.
