Print out of constellations

Americana Gloss Enamels in Napa Red, Deep Midnight Blue and Dioxazine Purple

Step 4: Draw the Stars

Clean the underside of the dishes with alcohol

Pick your constellation and draw it on the underside of the plate

Edge the plate with the Krylon Short Cuts pen to give it a finished look

Step 5: Paint and Bake

Add tiny stars with the silver metallic Krylon Short Cuts Pen

Blend the Napa Red and Dioxazine Purple Gloss Enamels on the center of the plate

Before it's dry, add the Midnight blue and blend Coat the entire back of the plate with midnight blue (or black) and let dry

Bake twice for 30 minutes at 350° letting it cool in between baking
