I am doing up these plates for friends and family with children or grandchildren. This one is the one my son is insisting that we are keeping. I am also doing up a matching mug for Santa's milk.
So if people want to do these here is the information to. Get a plain white porcelean plate (I chose off white and bought mine from the Dollar Store) Use staze on to stamp your images. I stamp everything first. Be quick to wash it off if you make an error. If you don't get to it fast enough don't worry, just use a little bit of comet/ajax/powdered bathroom cleaner and a damp cloth and the staze on comes right off. (Well with a little elbow grease ;oP)
Then I coloured with permanent markers. I used sharpies and they worked really well. They also come in lots of colours now and are really permanent.
That is about it. I spray my plates with a sealer that you can use on glassware. Pick it up at a craft store. You want one that is water proof and can be used on things that hold food. You can wash the plate without it but it does dull the colours.
Hope you girls like it.

OMG! Thank you so much for sharing the technique! I have been posting everywhere trying to figure out how to stamp on a ceramic plate and keep it food safe! I am so excited to finally stamp little appetizer plates I picked up for a steal!
