What an adorable idea to personalize a plate, a mug, or even decorate your dishes. Look at all the fun gifts you can create for family and friends with this great technique. This fun technique was found on Pinterest. You can also go to Allred Design and find the tutorial from Lori Allred creating her projects.
Not sure how to do this? Very simple just by using Sharpie Markers and your oven. These are permanent if done correctly.
Using Vinyl, create a stencil and use your sharpies to trace the shape you desire.
The best method to fill in and color your letters is to go back and forth. Move upward on the design. Do not go back over the area that you have already colored if you want a solid color in the area. Going back over the color will lift off some of the color you already put down.
Peel off the vinyl to reveal your fun number or design. When you have completed your design you will put your item in the oven while oven is still off. Turn on the heat to 425 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes are done turn off your oven, leave your dish or dishes in the oven until the oven is cooled way down. This will help set the ink into your dishes. Using a black marker actually gives the project a more professional look. The colored markers will change color after they are baked, and you don’t always get the color you started out with.
A big question always asked “Are the dishes food safe if we are coloring on the eating area with a Sharpie?” From the pins featured on Pinterest they felt like they were because we bake the ink into the plate, and it should be safe. However to be on the side of safe eating, I would coat the surface with Acrylic Lacquer Glass Spray. This way there is no question.
Have a fun time creating your personalized dishes.
Creativity involves in breaking out of your traditional style. Take a look at your project in a different way, and never hesitate to try something new.
