Adult Coloring Book Dishes DIY

Still trying to figure out what to do with all of those beautiful adult coloring book pages you've been working on?  Why not create a set of dishes for yourself using dollar store glass plates!  These are dishwasher safe and you can eat off of them because all the work is done on the back.  Plus, you can use this technique for your most beautiful work!  Have fun and Make Your Mark! 
xoxo, Mark

See how easily they come together here!
Stuff You'll Need
Your favorite coloring book pages
Thick permanent marker
Americana acrylic paint in white (and other colors)
Rubbing Alcohol
Glass plates
Paintbrushes or cosmetic sponge
Here's How:
1.  Clean the back of the glass plate with rubbing alchol
2.  Edge the plate with a black paint pen
3. Trace around your design with a thick black permanent marker
4.  Make copies of your page on white and in colors you like
5. & 6.  Carefully cut out your images and decide on your design
7.  Mist the front and back of your cutouts with water using a small spray bottle
8. & 9. Add the Americana Decoupage to the face of your cutout
10.  Gently place on the plate and clip the edges so they adhere around the curves
11.  When all the pieces are adhered, paint the back of the plate with white (or a color) using a cosmetic sponge
12.  When dry, coat the entire back of the plate with Americana Dishwasher Safe Decoupage
*follow the instructions for curing time
