I don’t consider myself an artist. I never have and probably never will. It’s probably because I think artists should be able to draw. Not everyone will agree, but that’s just the truth I carry in my head. I do, however, love to doodle. Especially with black markers. So when A Beautiful Mess shared this His + Her Sharpie Mug idea, I knew I had to try it.
YOU WILL NEED:
Use the tape as a drawing tool to create a pattern or design on the dish. If necessary, use the scissors to cut the tape into the desired width before taping onto the plate. I didn’t plan my design ahead and ended up with a sort of chevron pattern. I liked it!
Freestyle some lines, dots, words, whatever onto the empty space. Don’t think about it too much… Unless you’re good at that sort of thing. If you make a mistake, fear not. Simply scrub the ink off and try again. It isn’t permanent – yet.
Peel off the tape (it’s so FUN) and put the dishes into a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 30 minutes.
Care for these plates like they were purchased at full price from Anthropologie. In other words, hand wash with a sponge or soft cloth – they are not dishwasher safe.
I think these would make lovely personalized gifts for the folks in your life. Especially if you stocked them up with some gluten-free treats!
