I'm a long time lurker, sometimes poster (sometimes being like once in a bluemoon) and I finally decided to jump in and share my stuff.

These are a set of four plates I've been working on and I love them. We'll see if I'm capable of putting them in my post now....

... or apparently I'm not allowed to post photos directly yet. They're in my craftster gallery though and on http://www.flickr.com/photos/30436812@N05/3026272733/in/pool-etsyhomefront


It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

Those are by far the best thing I've seen all week! Great job! Did you free hand these, or use a stencil?

Those are really cool! I like that you used clear plates. Is the painting on the back?

Yay, more great NBC stuff! Nice of you to add some lyrics. The font is great (what font is it?)

When in doubt - use gold paint Wink

Love the dishes!
SO cute!
How did you do them?
« Reply #9 on: November 17, 2008 09:20:51 PM »

If you use dish paint ( i use stuff made by pebeo), you just fire it in the oven to set the paint. They are totally dishwasher safe AFTER firing. if you do it before, all the paint comes off which is good if you've majorly messed up. I like to paint the underside of the dishes now because it makes it look better on the top.

I did a mix of stencil and freehand. The words were a print out that I could trace to make them look right.

If you use pebeo, you have to let your dishes set for 24 hours to cure. Then put the cold dish in the cold oven and preheat to 325 (or whatever your jar of paint says). I then cook for 40 min (because that's what the jar says to do) and then shut off the oven and let it all cool. It can take several hours for it to cool, but by doing it this way I've yet to have a dish shatter on me.

The font is called Burton's Nightmare and my sister sent to me from some tim burton fansite that I've long since lost.

Thank you for the compliments. They were incredibly fun to do and I started doing more NBC stuff. It's one of our favorite movies.
