DIY Painted Plates


Give your table a colorfully customized touch for Thanksgiving, or your next dinner party, with this lovely DIY painted plate tutorial by Blair Stocker over on the creativebug blog.


By simply adding a little porcelain paint, you can transform your fine china into a ceramic coloring book that you can safely eat off of after you’ve properly heated the plates in order to cure them.

Once properly cured, these plates are completely food safe and able to be washed in the dishwasher.

I’d love to see some more examples of customized plates if anyone ends up trying this project out for themselves. Something like these hilarious pop culture quote paintings by Morgan Gessel could be great!
