This is a plate I decorated some time ago, among many others.....as it is painted on top of glaze it can be washed in soapy sudsy water, but not in a dishwasher...the method for starting this is easy...My husband had an old turntable for records...so I put an upturned cake tin over for the centre post and held it firm with blue tac...then put the plate on top and kept it turning whilst using a flat brush and porcelain paint to make the base....shapes can be carefully wiped of fand your drama begins.....great fun, easy etc...MaryLiz.....

Lovely design Mary and great use of the turntable

Oh did you fire the plate once it was dry in your normal oven? It doesn't take longer pop the plate into your oven slowly bring it up to the correct heat and cook for the given amount of time then reduce the heat, then turn off the oven then leave it to cool slowly in the oven so it doesn't crack from sudden tempture changes. Then it's all sealed nicely.
