It will be a really nice gift forgrandmothers - a decorative plate, hand painted. Grandmothers usually appreciate your attention, like no other. Anyone is able to paint a plate or other object using stencils. Such dishes can be put on the kitchen shelf - and brag to the guests. For this project you will need: • Paint for glass and ceramics of several colors • Stencils "lace" on an adhesive basis • Sponge (sponge) • Ceramic or glass plate without a pattern Step by step Step 1 Prepare the surface by washingHis plate with detergent and removing traces of the price tag with alcohol. Make sure it is completely dry. The cleaner the plate, the better the pattern will lie. Step 2 Remove the stencil from the substrate and place it on your plate, then press it, fixing it on the surface. Step 3: Dip the sponge in the paint, blot excess - and stencil through the light movements. It is important not to press the tip of the sponge too hard, because this can lead to the formation of bubbles in the paint and affect the result. Just lightly tap the stencil. The gradient effect can be created usingseveral adjacent shades of paint. To do this, paint one part of the stencil in one color, continue to work with another, slightly overlapping the previous one, so that in the intermediate stage the two colors blend. It turns out a very beautiful effect. Do not stretch the work for a long time, otherwise the paint will dry up - and it will be difficult to remove the stencil from the plate. So remove it before the paint dries. Immediately wash the stencil with water so that it can bewas used later. If you make any mistakes or smear paint during work, just wipe off everything with a damp paper towel and start over. To create a multi-layer pattern, you can overlay several patterns on top. But to impose the following pattern, in order not to damage the previous one, it is possible only after the paint has dried, that is, in 24 hours. To speed up the drying process, you can put the product in the oven for half an hour or hour. Make sure that the paint is not baked and does not change its color. Be very careful when applying adhesive stencils over paint - they can damage even dried paint. Here is a photo of a multilayered pattern: Please note that the paint may not be food, so it is better not to eat from hand-painted dishes, but use it in the decor of kitchen shelves or a festive table.
