While eating on pretty plates can be a lot of fun, looking at plates can be even more fun! These particular plates were actually bought at the dollar tree. Cheap is my favorite! I drew up a design that I had been thinking about, and used glass paint to paint the images on the plates.
Other plate painting options:
If you want to paint a plate you eat on, you can buy glass paints that you put on and actually bake. Here is a link to the type of paint you would want to use…folk art enamels
If you do not want to paint, but you want a decorative plate, you can always find glass decals or even go as far as etching.
