humm I dont know if this belongs here but here we go.  I made these neato plates tonight.  It was an idea I got at like 3 am.  I think they turned out rather nice for my first try.


I am interested in politics so that one day I will not have to be interested in politics.

I love them!  You did a really good job, I just have 2 questions:
1) Can you eat off of them or put them in the dish washer?
2) How did you make them, did you paint on the back-sides with glass paint?  Did you use anything to get that cool pattern?
Anyway, they are awesome  Smiley

They look like the plates out of Mark Montano's book Big Ass Book of Crafts. I'm not sure about the technique used by the OP, but the book's way is easy. It is just spray paint, a clear glass plate, and lace/netting. You paint on the back (underside) so they are food safe. You can only handwash them tho.

It does look like the one's from The Big-Ass Book of Crafts.

1. Spray the plate with spray adhesive glue.
2. Lay the chosen fabric over it.
3. Spray paint 1st color choice and let dry for 5 minutes.
4. Peel off fabric and let dry for 15 more minutes.
5. Spray second color and let dry.
6. Spray with Krylon Acrylic Crystal Clear.
7. Coat 2 more times and let dry completely in between.

Vintage style with a new twist.
