Anthropology Dishes DIY

Lately every thrift store I hit has an entire shelf filled with white porcelain dishes for pennies.  Being the crazy hoarder that I am, I usually grab a box full and haul them home and wait for inspiration to visit.  Well, a few weeks back, after a trip to some hip home goods stores,  inspiration hit and I started making these Fornasetti inspired (dishwasher safe) dishes......and now I'm hooked.  I may just toss out all of my other dishes and use these from now on because they are rocking my world!  Remember to hit the thrift store, look everywhere for inspiration and always Make Your Mark!
Mug-a-licious!

Watch how easy they are to make here
STUFF I USED
White porcelain dishes
Americana Dishwasher Safe Decoupage
Water bottle
Gold paint marker
Americana Decor Metallics in Antique Brass
 HERE'S HOW
1. - 3. Paint the handles with the Americana Decor Metallics and edge the plates with a gold paint pen
4. & 5.  Carefully cut out an image and mist it with water to relax the paper
*This prevent bubbles when you decoupage
6. & 7.  Coat the back of the image with the decoupage and adhere it to the mug
8. & 9.  Add a generous amount of decoupage around the image overlapping slightly onto the porcelain and fill in with more decoupage
10.  Coat the painted handle generous amount of decoupage
12.  Coat the gold edge and image on the plates with a thick layer of decoupage and let cure
Done!

So chic!
