  1. Really pretty. I have a flask shaped bottle I want to paint either prettily or do something spooky for Halloween. You are giving me ideas. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Marian! You could easily use this technique on a bottle! This package has smaller paisleys in it too, you don't have to use these big ones.

  5. Can you use these plates in the oven since they have the patterns on them or will they come off? Is it just used as a serving dish? Never done anything like this before but looks great

    1. This is actually a platter, it's quite large, you could really use it as a tray even! You could do this with plates though if you wanted. The paint is on the underside, so you could serve food on them. Since you can cure them in the oven, then I guess you could put them in the oven if you wanted to, to warm them up perhaps. Is that what you meant? I hope I answered your question!

  6. Should the oven be one just for DIY projects of this nature?

    1. Thanks Andrea! That is a great idea about the jewelry! I think it would make a nice Candle tray too, lots of uses for this I guess!

  10. I love this idea. I went to Target today and got 2 platters for the Grandma's that I will see later in the month. I bought letter stencils to do their last name initial. Think I will use them assuming the technique is the same using spray adhesive for the stencil. I would think hand washing in the future? And probably not for use as bakeware.

    1. Linda if you use the Martha Stewart Glass paint, and cure it according to the directions on the bottle, it is supposed to be dishwasher safe, on the top rack. I probably wouldn't bake with it though. I hope that helps!
