My daughter brought me all these coloring books...so I decided to color.
I like the rounded ones. This way you can do more with them. I found clear glass plates (with a few scratches) at the thrift store for $.20 each.
You can also use colored pencils. The markers did run a little, but not too bad. Can you really notice?
I put a thin layer on the back of the plate. Then I stuck on the design. Once secure, I painted a layer on the paper.
The points on design were hard to keep down. Just kept using more MP.
I was bummed that there were some bubbles. I kept trying to flatten, but didn't want to rip the paper. I did poke a small pinhole in the big bubbles and tried to flatten. Not sure if that really did anything. Came back after it dried and it was completely flat!! Whoo hoo!! I put 2 coats on the back.
I let sit for a few days and then sprayed a thin coat of finish on it. Makes me feel like it's more protected.
I was going to put my painted rocks on it...but then its hidden. So I'm not using the rocks on this plate, but I already have another idea :)

AnswersI love the painted rocks very much. What kind of paint do you use for this ???
AnswersHow do you wash this? Is there something you could put on it to seal it so it is washable?
AnswerWhen you say back of plate, you mean the surface you'd normally eat on ? Would be cool to hang in a window or sit on window sill.
