DIY Monogram Dish

Monday, January 23, 2012

What you need:
White plate, bowl, or dish
Acrylic paint
Sharpie
Modge Podge
Paint brushes
Painter's tape


I put painters tape around all four corners, 
put a coat of mode podge on and then began painting the center pink.

I used 20629 Raspberry

After about 4 coats I applied modge podge to seal the paint

After the modge podge was dry I drew my monogram with a silver metallic sharpie and then painted it in with Martha Stewarts Metallic Sterling Acrylic Paint
After it was dry I put ANOTHER layer of modge podge on

Finished Product
