- white ovenproof plates
- food and dishwasher safe ceramic paint (or ceramic paint pen)
- masking tape (optional)
- 1.0 liner artist brush
Wash and dry plates. Position stencil in desired location on plate and hold firmly or tape into place. Lightly trace design with a pencil (Images 1 and 2).
Using a 1.0 liner brush, fill in design with ceramic paint. Ceramic paint pens are available for those less steady with a brush. If a mistake is made, it can be washed off to start over. Once completed, allow paint to dry for 24 hours before proceeding to next step.
Follow manufacturer's instructions to bake plates and cure paint. Allow plates to cool. Tip: Design options are limitless. Paint a simple gold rim for a classic look, or monogram plates for a personalized hostess gift.
