Sometimes I’m in need of instant gratification. With this home that we bought, there are plenty of projects and all of them are large, time consuming, and cost money. So, I needed a little project that would give me instant gratification.
I’ve had this container for a while now and I’ve been wanting to paint it up with a number to use for my utensils.
So, here’s a quick, inexpensive project for you. Perfect on plates, vases, anything glass or ceramic!
Start out with a printout of your word or letter. You’ll need tape and a pencil to begin. And of course, whatever you’re painting!
Take your printout of your word/number and turn it over to the backside. Use your pencil to shade the words/letters. Make sure to press pretty hard so that when you transfer it, it’ll actual transfer.
Once you’ve shaded the backside of your printout, flip it over, position it on your item, and tape it down. Then you can begin tracing your letters/number.
Once that is completed, peel off the tape and you are ready to begin painting. You’ll need a paintbrush (preferably a finer point one) and some acrylic paint that is made specifically for ceramics/glass and can be baked in the oven. You can find this at your craft store on the paint aisle.
Once you’ve painted, follow the directions on the back of the paint (pop in cool oven, bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes, and let cool in oven).
In just a few short minutes you have a cute new container…instant gratification!
