I was advised that no paint is foodsafe, even when baked for permanence. Are these enamels safe???

Hi Crafter 3426956 - These are just ordinary foam plates that your local craft store should carry. If not, you could probably find them for sale online. Hope this helps! -The editors of FaveCrafts

Where do I buy these white plates?
