I have started a new line of dinner plates.
I am still working out a few details. These are my first three:


These ones are made with plain glass plates, pin-up girl cut-outs, modge podge, and spray paint.
They are completely usable and hand-washable. I used them for a sexy candle light dinner that I made for my boyfriend last night.

You can eat off of them? With Mod-Podge? Amazing and so cool!

Thank you! Smiley
Yes, The picture is adhered to the back of the plate with modge podge and then spray painted over with 2 coats of flat black and 2 coats of clear sealer.
I do not have a dishwasher, so I wouldn't be able to test them, but my guess is that they are probably not ready for one yet.

These are so awesome! Screw eating off them and covering them up with yicky food, I'd hang them on my wall. <3

These are adorable; however they are not foodsafe. Unfortunately without firing in a kiln there is no food safe sealer for decorative painting. Even though acrylics are non-toxic, it is recommended that they do not come in contact with food. Spray paint is even less safe.  But they are still great and decorative!

it's painted on the back, not where the food touches. =/ I've done this with several plates (albeit less cool than this set) and they're all fine.

Nothing is touching the surface where food would be placed.

Here are some more detailed shots of one of them:

Noting but the surface of the plate.
