You browse around Pinterest, you see all these neat things, and you're claiming, "Oh, I can do that!"
Yup. I do that all. the. time. I've seen this one in several places and thought I'd give it a try since it looked to be so simple. If I messed it up, or it didn't work then at least I'd know if it worked! I bought a heavy plate second hand, and cleaned it well. (Did you know toothpaste can remove utensil marks from plates? The white paste works best.)
I traced out lines for my words.
Then I wrote out my quote in pencil so I could arrange it the way I wanted it without messing up from the start!
Once I got everything written out I traced over it with a permanent marker.
The last and final step was baking it. I stuck it in my craft oven, set to 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I let it cool in the oven completely as well.
When it was cool I pulled it out and using a slightly dampened paper towel attempted to rub off the pencil line guide marks I'd made. Guess what happened?
What? It didn't work?! Bummer! I'm telling ya, I was completely disappointed.
I'm going to have to try again, though. I've read in a couple of places that Sharpie oil based paint markers work well. I'll have to give it a try.
Did you try this Pinterest DIY, and did it work for you?
