Items for Painting with Ceramic Paint
I don’t want to give away too much of this project to paint glass with ceramic paint. I encourage you to check out the full tutorial on A Makers’ Studio Facebook page.
For this project, I used clear glass 7.5 inch salad plates from Dollar Tree. Beside glass salad plates, you can also use:
- dinner plates
- white plates
- water, juice, wine glasses
- glass in frames
A Quick Look at Painting with Ceramic Paint
Of course, you will need Ceramic Paint. This paint comes in 9 rich colors. I chose to use Black.
A Makers’ Studio No Bake Ceramic paint lays a rich, permanent color on ceramic and glass surfaces and it’s food safe!
What you’ll love:
- Create your own custom dishes, vases, and glasses with vibrant pops of color (best on ceramic, porcelain or fine china).
- It’s so easy! Just apply it to your surface with your favorite A Makers’ Studio stencils!
- This medium is food safe and microwave safe. For best results hand wash only.
Choosing Your Stencil Designs
In addition to your glass surface, you will also need the stencils of your choice. A Makers’ Studio has hundreds of tri~mesh stencils for you to choose from.
I chose to use 5 different stencil designs to demonstrate how versatile the stencils are.
These designs are from 5 different stencil packages, each having multiple designs:
- rooster from Farmhouse Animals
- bird from Birds
- dig in from Southern Sayings
- “L” from Alphabet 5
- Bible verse from Pray More, Stress Less
My Finished Stencils with Ceramic Paint
The ceramic paint is applied to the stencils just like our ChalkArt and GelArt Ink. All you have to do is let the ceramic painted designs sit for 12 hours. Then they are ready to use.
Here are my completed Dollar Tree salad plates with the ceramic~painted stencil design.
Aren’t these plates the cutest? So easy to do with stencils and ceramic paint. You can use them in your plate settings because they are food safe and microwave safe. They will also make darling display items in your home decor.
Just be sure to hand wash them.
