Brushstroke Painted Plates: Part 2

DIY

Last year I created a fun set of Brushstroke Painted Plates. (If you missed them, you can see them here.) They were, and still are, one of my favorite projects.

A few weeks ago I was working on a tablescape and thought brushstroke plates would make a unique addition to the table. However, the color scheme of the ones I had just didn’t work. So, I decided to create another set to match my design.

Even though I’ve already shared this how-to with you, I thought you might enjoy seeing a variation of the project.

I followed the same basic technique as I did previously. If you need the full tutorial, click here for all the details. However, this time around, I changed the colors, plate design, and pattern.

I started with plates I found at HomeGoods. I wanted something a bit more traditional in style this time to contrast with the fun and colorful lines of the paint.

This go-round, I opted for four colors in shades of blue, green, and gray. One of the great things about this paint is that it’s non-toxic. Once applied to the plates and “baked” in the oven, the plates are food and dishwasher safe. (However, I should note, that just to be safe, I still wash mine by hand.)

Rather than covering the plates with brushstrokes of paint, I decided to keep the design on only one part of the plate.

Again I worked with one color at a time, allowing each color to dry before adding the next. This keeps the paints from mixing together and looking muddy.

To finish each plate, I added a splatter of paint (one in each color) to create a casual and artistic touch.

Once baked in the oven, the plates were complete!

It truly is that simple. Plus, it’s a fun way to tap your artistic side as you create something beautiful and functional for your home and table.

As I said previously, the design and color scheme are up to you. Feel free to skip the splatter or use only one color. You could even go in a completely different direction and use painter’s tape to paint hard lines. Or stamp on a pattern. No matter how you do it, the end result will certainly be one-of-a-kind and a special addition to your table.

    I love this idea. I am having trouble finding paint that is not acrylic. Could you please advise what you used. I know many have asked. The link in your first video about the paint is no longer available. Thanks!!

    I know this post is a few years old, and I’ve searched high and low but I am not able to find any paints that are not acrylic other than water colors or tempera paints. The link in your original post is no longer valid. Any suggestions on the type of paint, I would love to make these. Thanks so much!!!

      Kim,

      So sorry about that, Basically you need a paint you can bake. I just did a quick google search and apparently acrylic paint can be baked. Be sure to read the instructions for use on any paint before trying. For example here’s a quick article I found from Plaid (a popular craft paint.) READ HERE. I assume their multi-surface paint would work great for this project.

      Hope that helps!
