Step 6: 24 hours after your have finished your painting you can bake the plate in the oven according to the instructions on the porcelain paint bottle. This step will ensure that your plate is dishwasher safe.
Tips and tricks:
- Don’t use too much paint as it may drip
- Remove the stencil right away. Don’t wait for the paint to dry first. If you do, the paint will be peeled off with the stencil.
- If paint accidentally ends up on the mug (outside the stencil) you can remove it right away with a paper towel.
- Paint may get under the stencil making the edges of the word MOM look not smooth. No worries, you will cover them with the black marker.
