A girl’s first apartment is a magnificent thing. Thus, she should always make sure the items in it are as much of her personality as possible. There is nothing more fun for a female kitchen that these sassy pink, black, and white striped dinner plates.
For this project, you will need:
– Four (or more) “City” plates in black, from Ikea
– Sponge brush
– Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Surface Conditioner
– Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Paint in Fuchsia
– Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Paint in Ultra White
– Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Clear Gloss
– Masking Tape
– Soap and water
– Paper towels
While Delta Perm Enamel is a wonderful product, it could also easily stain your workspace. Thus, it always begin with a thick layer of newspaper laid down to prevent any spills or drips during the craft painting process.
Wash each of the plates with soap and water. Dry completely with paper towels. With the sponge brush, add a thick coat of Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Surface Conditioner to the entire face of each black plate. Let the surface conditioner set overnight before continuing the project.
Using a pair of scissors, cut strips of masking tape to go across the plate in the same direction. With the ruler as a guide, adhere each of the strips 1/4 inch apart. (I.e. there should be a 1/4 inch exposed gap between strips of tape.)
With the sponge brush, coat the exposed areas of plate with a generous layer of Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Paint in Fuchsia. Let the paint dry for about an hour before applying a second coat. Once this has dried for an additional hour, remove all tape from the plate.
Reapply the strips of tape to the plate, but this time covering the pink area and leaving another 1/4″ of exposed black. Apply another two thick layers of paint, but this time using the Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Paint in Ultra White.
Remove all tape strips. You should have a plate that now alternates black, white, and pink stripes. Cover the entire plate in Delta Perm Enamel Air Dry Clear Gloss. Repeat with the remaining Ikea plates. Once the plates have dried overnight wash well, dry, end enjoy!
TIP: Thanks to the wonderful Delta Perm Enamel paint, this project is dishwasher safe when completed.
