Spring Cookie Dish

Spring is finally showing it’s face across the country!  Can I get a woot woot?  With the warmer temperatures and a few of my daffodils and tulips starting to pop their green shoots up through the ground, I decided it was time to make a cheerful spring project.  Today, I am sharing this Spring Cookie Dish.

I was walking the aisles of Hobby Lobby like I do fairly often and I ran across Enamel Acrylic paints.  Where have I been??!  I think this is a new thing… or I’m just failing at my crafty game.

The first step was to clean off the plate surface with rubbing alcohol.  Then, I put down three pieces of washi tape.

Cookie Dish stepsUsing a small tipped brush, I painted small lines along each edge of the tape.  Be sure to remove the tape prior to the paint drying, as the paint will pull up if you wait too long.  I learned this the hard way.

After pulling up the tape, you are left with a clean line on one side of the dots and a very interesting pattern!

Then, just follow the directions on the enamel paint bottle.  Mine said to allow for air drying for an hour.  Then, I placed my plate on a cookie sheet in the oven and baked at 350’F.  After baking for the allotted time, turn off the oven and slightly open the door to allow for slow cooling.  Do not remove the baked plate until it is completely cool to the touch.

      Hm… I actually took Japanese in high school but sadly we never learned the word for Enamel Acrylic Paint, ha!

  2. I’m loving the colors in this project. It’s amazing to me just how much you are able to accomplish!

  3. It is really cute., but if it says “not to be used on food surfaces,” you can’t really use it as a cookie plate, can you?

  4. This is really cute! I assume that anything you use this paint on needs to be hand-washed?
