I know I'm not the first one with a sharpie DIY, and that there must be thousands of these floating around on the internet. I hope no one will object to one more. In my opinion, the best DIY's are the easy ones, that don't take up a lot of your time and the ones that don't need lots of supplies to make. All you need for this one are a plate, a sharpie and an oven.
Start by making ovals
Don't forget to bake your plate for half an hour at 150ºC / 300ºF
I do my dishes the old fashioned way, but once baked, it should

Wow! That's a designer plate!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing, I've always wanted to try this but wasn't sure
the baking process really works - now I know it does!
It's fun to try, maybe I'll see your creation on your blog :-)Delete
Thanks mom :-)Delete
What a great idea! Any plate, any sharpie? Now I have to learn to draw!!ReplyDelete
I used an oil based sharpie, with an extra fine tip. The plate I used was a cheap cake plate.Delete
Cool idea! I'd probably sit, frozen, with Sharpie in hand, afraid to make the first mark . . .ReplyDelete
No problem if you make a mistake, it easily comes off with a bit of warm water. :-)Delete
love simple and easy DIY too, your plate looks great! I do a similar thing using jam jars, then they become containers for spices and such.ReplyDelete
I'd love to see your creations Mirta!Delete
Love this! for all the sharpie DIYs I've seen I have never tried it! Maybe this weekend...ReplyDelete
Oh boy, I want to make one too:) I love your design! Have a beautiful start to the week:) xoxoReplyDelete
Wow that is really wonderful! I have seen this on Pinterest a few times, your pics are just inspiring me to try it soon!ReplyDelete
Great tutorial! Your plate design belongs on store shelves! I wish I had talent like that. I think I need to do this when my little cousin visits, it would make for a great memory! Thank you for the DIY inspiration!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh! A DIY I can actually do!ReplyDelete
But seriously, I love how easy this is. I've never thought of doing this on a plate. Thanks for sharing, Marieken!
ohhh, I like this!ReplyDelete
I really like this idea! I've seen other tutorials where people try to put them in the dishwasher and the design fades, so I think washing by hand is the safest choice.ReplyDelete
You have just inspired me! A couple years ago I spent over a hundred bucks on white square and rectangular serving plates for a dessert table at a baby shower. I think I should jazz them up for the holidays! I do have a ton of glass paints but never thought to use it on those plates. Thanks for the idea!ReplyDelete
My husband found this & tried it w/my kids as a Mother's Day present yesterday. I loved it! They each wrote their name and a picture (not the picture you used), but thanks to you my husband found a great & easy gift idea. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Hi Corinne, happy to hear you received a homemade gift! Those are the best :-)Delete
Hi. Can I use a blow dryer to set the print. Our oven is busted right now. Thanks! Great stuff!ReplyDelete
I have no idea! I think the oven is easiest, if the dryer does the job as well, it might take a lot of time. Maybe a friendly neighbour with a working oven?Delete
I've seen lots of comments that this doesn't actually stick for too long, especially if using a dishwasher... any thoughts? Some say that you should use porcelain only, others say, let it completely cool in the oven. Any suggestions from those who have tried and been successful?ReplyDelete
I don't know how it stays on in the dishwasher (I don't have one), but this stays on fine so far. Maybe you could test with just a small, easy drawing.Delete
im a first timer to try my hands on ceramic with Sharpie ... i have 80's glam sharpie colors ...hope it will stay even after wash with this process.
Hope it works with your kind of Sharpies! Just don't wash your creations in a dishwasher but by hand :-)Delete
This's an excellent diy project.ReplyDelete
