The 4th of July is only a week away, but it’s not too late to make some snazzy platters to hold your goodies. Here are two ideas of plates to create at your local paint-on-pottery shop! Special thanks to Sprinkles for donating the cupcakes for the photo – check the bottom of this post to enter in a giveaway! You’ll need to select some Duncan bisque, I went with an oblong platter and a large square one. And then you’ll need Duncan Concepts Underglazes in red, white and blue. Brushes and Pure Brilliance Glaze are needed too.
Base coat your platters as desired. I went with all white for one of them, and red and blue for the other. The contrast is nice once they are fired, they’ll compliment each other!
I used thin tape down the center of the platter and then used a Tulip Sponge Pouncer to create dots. For the outside, I used the tip of the paintbrush and made a hecka lot of polka dots!
For the second platter, I used a Tulip Flexible Stencil and applied white paint with the pouncer. When you’re finished, coat with two layers of Pure Brilliance and then fire at Cone 06.
Love & light,
