Glass paint and a pretty pattern transform
basic dishes into decorating standouts. Draw or print a pattern onto paper and cut away
extra paper so the pattern fits easily on the plate. To transfer the pattern, flip the
paper over and shade the back with a graphite pencil then replace the paper pattern side
up. Tape to secure and trace with a pencil. To paint, use a stylus and glass paint. Apply
dots along the lines. When dry, wipe away the pencil lines and bake the plate according
to the paint manufacturer’s instructions. Painted plates are for decorative use only
so use them to grace your table as an accessory.
