The shop is no longer around so I created a way to make one using a porcelaine paint pen for ceramics and some old-school type-curving techniques.

The plate is a basic Home brand salad plate from Target, I think I paid less than $4 for it. For creating curved type around a plate, print out your type in two separate lines for top and bottom. Turn your template over and cover the back of the type you will be tracing with pencil. Trim out the strips of type along the dashed line and be careful to cut around ascenders and descenders in your type, such as a dot over the i or the bottom of a p. Share. From panka with love.

The secret to all these lovely colors! Mod Podge colored with a bit of food coloring! I had a couple little stamped jars on hand and I got to thinking, if I colored them, they would probably resemble some of the vintage glass pieces that belonged to my great grandmother.
