Next, download this jpeg file onto your computer. It is a picture file of the Scripture verse already done for you so you can upload it to any custom rubber stamp company you want, who will make the stamp to your size requirements. Remember: the bigger the stamp, the more expensive it is. And if you want to play around and make your own picture file or customize text on the rubber stamp websites, feel free. I was just trying to help if you are hard pressed for time. If you want to use a different text and create your own logo, I used http://www.logoease.com/ to create this jpeg file (pictured below).
- Dinner plates
-Dish soap and hot water
- Ceramic surface conditioner
- Two ounce bottle of dark colored ceramic paint, food safe (for stamping)
- Two ounce bottle of cream or white ceramic paint, food safe
- Clear gloss glaze
- Artist's bristle brush
- Your personalized Scripture stamp
(Due to drying time, this project should take about an afternoon plus overnight to complete.)
Begin this project by covering your workspace fully in newspaper. Wash each plate individually with dish soap and hot water. Dry all plates fully. With a soft brush, apply the ceramic surface conditioner as directed on the bottle. Shake each bottle of paint before use.
Next, apply dark colored acrylic paint to your Scripture stamp directly using the artist's brush. Using the ruler, find the direct center of the plate. Apply the stamp directly to the center. Allow the paint to dry before continuing. Repeat with the remaining plates.
Apply the clear gloss glaze to the plate, and dry according to manufacturer directions. (This can either be letting the plates sit overnight to dry, or by baking in an oven.) Once the paint and glaze has cured, you are ready to enjoy your mitzvah inspired dinner plates!
When finished, these gorgeous creations are hand wash only.
