Project #156 – Silhouette Plates

About two years ago, some of my friends posed for pictures in front of a green screen so I could add their silhouettes to lanterns for my wedding.

I’ve had the paper cutouts of each silhouette sitting around doing nothing since then, so I decided that it was finally time to put them to use again, this time to make plate decorations.

I started out by positioning a silhouette on the plate. This one has a little water damage, so I’ll be filling in the missing bits on the leg.

Next, I traced a pencil outline of the cutout.

And then I traced that line using a ceramic marker.

Finally, I filled in the shape. Let each plate cure for 24 hours and then baked to set the glaze according to the directions on the marker.

No Comments so far.
