I turned a blue cake dish from Anthropologie, into the same dish but handmade and adorned with small elements.
This kind of dish usually costs a little expensive, I propose a tutorial to make one at the price of painting ..
An elegant stand that makes it worthwhile to raise the desserts that are placed there, giving them a very special presentation on a pedestal where they seem even tastier. 
This is my first challenge of the week: pastel cake plate with gold edge sold at Anthropologie

First paste, then paint, finally adorn:
take a tube of super glue and glue the edge of the glass
place it in the center of the plate and let it dry
it is painted with blue aerosol in several alternating layers and allowed to dry
we put a smaller plate on the painted plate, to make an edge with golden spray
we polish and put glitter on the golden edge
we prepare his pieces in modeling
once dry they are painted in acrylic and varnished
they are placed on the edges of the dish and they are glued
Here is a beautiful support of colorful cake both useful and unique, which resembles those of Anthropologie but with a personal touch extra.

DIMENSIONS:

That's it, an upcycled plate and a glass that will look great on your table.


These pretty dishes can have many other functions besides serving as a special and unique gift, they can accommodate fruits, mail and various interesting things and be used in empty pockets and table decoration.
Composed of a fantasy plate stuck to a vintage glass turned into a foot, spray-painted and adorned with a golden edging and small poetic elements in modeling painted in acrylic and varnished: a blue bird, a fuchsia pink , small yellow roses, berries for the bird, a beautiful green ribbed leaf and a small decorative purple bow.
