This weekend Miss Add and I got down to the business of some plate decoratin’
I saw the idea in one of my cookbooks while prepping for FREEZE-O-RAMA.
So when Add and I went shoppin’, we stopped by Michaels and grabbed some porcelain paint pens with our 40% off coupon.
Note: Make sure you get the porcelain paint/paint pens. The other ceramic paint said you could bake it, but it also had a warning regarding avoiding food contact… And I don’t know about your plates, but mine like food contact… they are weird like that.
Then we grabbed some Corelle plates and got to work.
I heart Corelle.
And not just because this clip proves they TOTALLY get me:
Anyhoo, we began by tracing Miss Add’s hand print on her plate.
It was as easy as 1-2-3 and a couple “hold stills”
It was a little messy, but nothin’ a baby wipe couldn’t take care of…
Speakin’ of baby wipes…
HOW I lived without them before the monkey, I do not know…
Once everyone got their hand print recorded, Mommy decorated them up and labeled them.
Now I wouldn’t know it, but those baby wipes might just come in handy if you mess up during the decorating phase.
They might just be able to wipe away any mistakes lickety spilt… just sayin’
The designs are now set in the plates and dishwasher safe. Mommy score!
I feel another project comin’ on… Just sayin’
