Step 4

When the center design is finished, begin painting the edges of the plate by applying small amounts of color along the edge and quickly spraying the paint toward the center of the plate. Repeat until the entire rim of the plate is finished. This produces a delicate flared pattern around the plate's edge.

Step 5

Attach the gold paint to the airbrush. Spray behind the middle and edge of the plate with the gold. The gold should not extend more than 1/4 inch beyond the design.

Step 6

When dry, spray the entire back of the plate with white. Or, spray the whole back with gold for an elegant look. Use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.

Let the paint cure anddry for 24 hours. Bake in your oven at 300 degrees F for 30 minutes.
