I made these painterly plates for summer and I've been using them every day!
I really didn't want to be eating paint along with my pasta, so I'm happy to report the Pebeo 150 Porcelaine Paint I used still looks as fresh as the day I painted them many months ago.
This DIY is quick way to update your dinnerware without splurging on a whole new set.
- Wash and dry your plate to make sure you don't get any dust or specks in your design.
- Start your painterly dashes in the middle of the plate.
- Extend your painting around the plate to create even spaces between each dash.
- Follow the instructions on the Pebeo porcelaine paint bottle for curing the paint onto your plate - I did mine for the 'dishwasher safe' drying process: 35 minutes at 150°C (300°F), in a domestic oven (at a stable temperature), after drying for a minimum of 24 hours.
- If using these in the dishwasher, use the ECO programme and always place them in the top rack.
Of course, I had to do mine on colourful plates as I always struggle to stick to white.
I hope these add the perfect amount of painterly fun to your kitchen this summer.
TIP: I picked up these plates from target for $2 each on sale and they were gorgeous even before I painted them.
