Leaf-Stenciled Charger Plates
Hosting for the holidays? Treat your guests to a sit-down dinner showcasing these shimmery metallic chargers. Each one is stenciled with a leaf motif, but you can apply to the same idea with monograms or other symbols.

Starting with a clean glass plate, tape the stencil to the back of the plate, centering your design. Tape off the surrounding areas to prevent paint going outside the borders.
With a foam pouncer, lightly pounce 2 coats of Yellow Gold over the stencil. (Tip: blot pouncer onto a paper towel before each application). Remove stencil and let paint completely dry.
With a basic brush, apply two coats of Rust over the entire back surface of the plate, covering the stencil design. Let paint dry and follow curing instructions before use.
