Stenciled Shell Quote Plate

When DecoArt offered to send me their glass paints, I was super excited. These paints are perfect for painting on glass and ceramics – and after you bake them, they are dishwasher safe! The paints themselves aren’t food-safe, though. So use them on chargers, the outside of glassware, the bottom of plates… but never on a surface that food or your lips will be touching. The paints are non-toxic, but you want to stay safe, right?

This decorative plate was super easy to make with the DecoArt Glass paint line. There are different colors and finishes of paint as well as paint pens. The paint pens are probably my favorite. You can use them to make this decorative plate.

supplies for glass paint plate To make your own decorative plate, you’ll need:
A plain plate (I got one with decorative edges)
DecoArt Glass Paint
DecoArt Glass Paint Marker
DecoArt Glass Paint Stencil
Rubbing Alcohol
Paper Towels
Soft Paintbrush


Start by cleaning your surface with the rubbing alcohol. After it dries, place the stencil. This will help you line up your lettering. Use the glass paint pen to write your quote.

With the soft bristled paintbrush, paint in the stencil. Remove the stencil while the paint is still wet.

If you make any mistakes, just wipe them away with the alcohol and start over. Once you’re happy, follow the instructions on the bottle to cure the paint and make it dishwasher-safe.
