Materials List

  • White round dish
  • Gold leaf paint
  • Small paint brushes
  • Pencil
  • Printed map (if needed)

    Note: The map in this tutorial was freehand drawn while looking at a map online. But if you prefer to follow guidelines instead, you can print out a map, cut out continents, and then trace them onto the plate with a pencil. The pencil wipes away easily, so make all the mistakes you want!


  1. Trace the general outlines of the continents onto the plate. The pencil wipes away, so keep trying until you're absolutely satisfied with the design.

  2. Once you've plotted out all your designs, use a small paintbrush to paint gold leaf in the outlined continents. 

  3. Once you’ve filled in the land, use the small paintbrush to create jagged lines around the continents – just like on a real map.

  4. Lastly, add small islands and clean up or smooth out the gold leaf paint.

  5. Let dry completely before using as a catch-all or ring dish.
