Girly Punk Plates
I got the idea from the Big Ass Book of Crafts...I think that this project turned out great! I made two different versions of my Girly Skull Plate, one with just using a stencil and glass paint pen and the other with a decoupaged image. I used the same pair of fishnet stalkings for the backgrounds on both.
These glass plates aren't only Glam, but they are functional too! You can eat off them and they are dishwasher safe! However, I gave the pink one to my friend for her daughters bedroom wall.

  • How to make a plate. Girly Skull Plate  - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, you take a clear glass plate and put the stencil on the backside of the plate. I used a sticky stencil so that when I painted it the stencil wouldn't move around on me.

    *Be sure to use a glass conditioner to make sure the paint adheres well to the plate.

    Second, I colored the stencil in on the backside of the plate with a glass paint marker. Let dry for 24 hours. Remove the stencil.

    Then I outlined the image on the backside of the plate with a black accent liner and let that dry.

    *Be sure to follow the instructions on the glass paint marker because sometimes they need to be baked.

    **I baked the plate in the oven for a half an hour at 250 degrees so that the paint set into the glass

    Next I took a pair of pink fishnet tights and stretched it around my plate till I got the look I wanted. you can use lace or whatever you like.
    Tack it down with spray adhesive.

    I then used my hot pink Krylon spray paint of choice and sprayed the entire backside of the plate over my stenciled image and let that dry.

you spray spray adhesive on to the fishnet if you cut it out to fit your plate, and then apply it to the back, then you spray it with the pink, let it set a minute, and then carefully peel off the fishnet, then spray the entire back with the black. Only the part of the glass that the threads of the fishnet stockings protected from the pink spray will then be black. It's kinda like stenciling or masking off something, in this case the design pattern for the plate.

Ok. so you pull the fishnet around the plate and spray the back pink? The part I get lost at is when you say you pull the net off and spray it black but your plate looks pink? I am thinking the black would cover the pink..im lost

As long as you seal it your plate is dishwasher safe, however I still would hand wash it personally....The book is full of wonderful projects

I decoupaged the image on the second plate, and then followed the same procedures as the first.
