  • Painting plates

    I have been trying to paint on store-bought plates with paint pens that are supposedly made for this purpose ("Painters" brand). I follow the instructions with the finished plates:let dry for 24 hours, bake for 10 minutes in oven, spray with shellac), but the paint just peels off! Any suggestions? This is for a Christmas project and time is running out. Thanks!

    Just a thought - are you putting the paint on too thick? My friends daughter got a set for her birthday that turned out quite well - it was 3.99 from Home Bargains and you got a plate and the paints. Also - is your oven at the right temp - my friend had to put the plate in the oven for 10 mins and then turn the oven off and leave the plate there until the oven was cold.
    Hope this helps
