Materials and Tools:

small white porcelain plates
porcelain paint in contrasting colors
small paintbrushes
metallic paint pens

Steps:

1. Paint rim of plate a color of your choice with porcelain paint, and allow to dry. Then paint the center of plate in a contrasting color and allow to dry.

2. Add guests' names and a decorative design around plate's brim with a metallic gold paint pen.

3. Allow paint to cure for a minimum of 24 hours. Once dry, place finished plate in a cold oven set to 350 degrees, follow paint manufacturer's instructions on the time required. The heat of the oven will permanently set the paint, making the plate dishwasher safe.
