  • Tulip Slick 3D Paint
  • Alcohol
  • Paper towels
  • Blue low mask painters tape
  • Clear glass plate

  1. Clean plate with alcohol and paper towels on both sides to remove any reside and finger prints. Apply tape to back of pattern, align in desired position and press face down onto front of plate.

  2. This is how your pattern should look positioned on the front of the plate. This view is looking at the back of the plate.

  3. Shake the paint into the tip of the bottle and test on paper towel. You want to be certain that no air bubbles are present in the paint as they can cause your paint to spatter.

  8. Check pattern lines to see if any minor clean-up is needed. I use the tip of my craft knife to clean up any spatters.

  9. Continuing to work on the back of the plate, brush one-coat of paint onto pattern.

  13. Now your plate is ready to serve some special holiday treats. Remember hand-crafted hand-wash! Do not immerse or soak your plate in water or paint can lift. Just use a damp sponge to gently clean off your hand-painted plate.
