Default have you ever stamped a plate?

You know those really cute plates that kids make in school (not plastic or paper) I don't know what they are made of.... but they draw on them or put their hands on them and then they are 'sealed' so you can wash them etc.

my daughter made one once in girlscouts but since she is at cheer camp I can't ask her what they are made of...

I'm thinking how fun and cute it would be to stamp these plates for the holidays (maybe with neighbors names on them or just holiday images) and give them with some goodies.

I got our lady's group at church together to make beautiful plates for use as Christmas gifts for teachers, neighbors, etc. I don't think it's quite what you had in mind, but here is what we did...we purchased clear glass salad-sized plates ($10 for a dozen Martha Stewart brand at KMart). We embossed a Christmas image on a piece of mulberry paper, trimmed it to fit the plate, and decoupaged it to the bottom. It wasn't washable, of course, but with a dozen cookies on it, and wrapped up nice, it made a very nice gift. We just included a card with washing instructions (surface wash only!)

I have never stamped directly on a plate but I did stamp on mulberry paper and then use mod podge to adhere it to the bottom of the plate. Everyone seemed to like it.

If you look in my gallery, you'll see some samples. The company who provides the kits and processing is www.makit.com . You don't need to use the markers they provide. Any dye based ink is OK. They also say not to use black, but then they provide a black marker, so
