Primary TechniquePainting

Difficulty LevelBeginner



  • Plate
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Glass Chalkboard Paint
  • Chalk



  1. I first cleaned the plate with rubbing alcohol and then began to apply one coat at a time of the Glass Chalkboard paint.
  2. You can see the design of the glass plate as I began to add coats of paint to it. I applied the chalkboard paint with a cosmetic sponge, about 5 coats in all.
  3. I only waited about an hour or two between coats (and you probably don’t have to wait that long, but I wanted to be sure it was dry.) Allow the plate to dry for 4 days and then bake for 30 minutes in a 325 degree oven. I allowed the project to cool with the oven door open
