Bring the entire universe to your table with these dishwasher safe constellation dishes! Using glass plates and bowls from the dollar store you can create a star studded table setting that's sure to please. Since we're painting on the underside of the glass, you can actually eat off of these plates.....How fantastic is that!
I love the way these turned out!
Watch the video tutorial here!
Print out of constellations
Americana Gloss Enamels in Napa Red, Deep Midnight Blue and Dioxazine Purple
Krylon Short Cuts in metallic silver and gold
Print out this constellation in gray scale (to save ink) and ON THE MIRROR IMAGE SETTING
*The reason you want to print this on the mirror image setting is because you're working on the opposite side of the plate. When you flip the plate over the constellation will be in the right configuration
Clean the underside of the dishes with alcohol
Pick your constellation and draw it on the underside of the plate
Edge the plate with the Krylon Short Cuts pen to give it a finished look
Add tiny stars with the silver metallic Krylon Short Cuts Pen
Blend the Napa Red and Dioxazine Purple Gloss Enamels on the center of the plate
Before it's dry, add the Midnight blue and blend
Coat the entire back of the plate with midnight blue (or black) and let dry
Bake twice for 30 minutes at 350° letting it cool in between baking
