DIY Watercolor Summer Fun Plates

It's almost Summer and we cannot wait to be using these adorable plates! This watercolor technique is one you can use in your crafts for any season. We also made the most adorable t-shirt, caddy, and more. 

Supplies:

Additional Supplies Needed:

  • Salad/Dessert Plates (Target)
  • Small bowls

Instructions:

  1. Begin by placing your stencil centered onto your plate.
  2. Working with one plate at a time, use the Artist Brush to apply the Black Ceramic Paint to the stencil.
  3. Quickly remove the stencil and wash in lukewarm water. Continue the process with the other plates, then allow them to dry to the touch before moving to the next step.
  4. Once dry, mix a dab of Grass Is Always Greener Ceramic Paint with a few drops of water. Use the Artist to then apply the paint to the rim of the watermelon.
  5. Repeat the same process mixing Hot And Spicy, Peony Pink Ceramic Paint, and water for the rest of the watermelon.
  6. Continue mixing colors and painting in the rest of the plates. You can mix Grass Is Always Greener, Angel Wings, and Hampton Blue to get a beautiful aqua blue.  Once done, allow them to dry for 12 - 14 hours. If you want to speed up the cure time and give it more durability, we recommend baking them for 25 minutes on 350 degrees, then let them cool down in the oven.
