steps

  1. Tape off edges of the dish.

  2. Apply 2-3 coats of Martha Stewart Crafts acrylic craft paint to the surface. To add splatters, dip a brush in thinned paint (ratio: a drop or two of water to a dollop of paint), and tap the base of the paintbrush against a pencil (make an X shape and tap together).

  3. Let the paint fully dry. Use a detail brush to paint gilding accents onto the dish.


  4. For painting the edge of a dish, use a wide, flat brush -- press the flat part of the brush onto the top edge and continue dabbing paint onto the edge one brush-width at a time.
