Disney DIY Autographed Plate

Thank you for sharing!

For my birthday I dined at Akershus. I wanted a special way to remember the experience so I decided to make a Disney DIY Autographed Plate. It was really simple and it is a great personalized addition to my Disney Plate Collection!

Disney DIY Autographed Plate

Materials Needed:

  • White Ceramic Plate (Got mine from the Dollar Tree)
  • Paint Pens that paint on ceramic
  • Castle Template (I free handed mine, but looked at one as a guide)
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Tape

Directions:

  1. Wash plate and then wipe down with rubbing alcohol. Try not to touch the areas you are painting once wiped down with alcohol.
  2. If you want the castle the same direction of as shown you will need to transverse the image before printing.
  3. With a pencil, very darkly trace the castle template.
  4. Then place the image face down on your plate.
  5. Next you scribble with a little hardness on the paper. This will hopefully make the outline show up ever so lightly on the plate.  I ended up with a light guide that helped me.
  6. Paint design onto the plate.
  7. Let dry/set for 3 days.
  8. Now it is time to bake the design on. Place the plate in the cold oven. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes. Add the preheat time on to the bake time. Allow the plate to cool completely before removing from the oven. If you choose not to bake your plate, the paint will cure within 21 days of air drying.
  10. Care: Hand wash only and do not soak. Handle with care as the design could scratch.

For the autographing we used regular Sharpies, you could also use the paint pens or oil based sharpies. I have heard oil based sharpies are best.  We baked the design again after getting the signatures. Since our plates are for display only, I am only going to dust plates. I am putting my plate in my curio cabinet.

My sister-in-law did a pretty cool free hand Mickey head on her plate, so be creative and personalize the  Disney DIY Autographed Plate to your taste!

Thank you for sharing!

This is a really fun idea! So much better than my little autograph book that I toted around Disney with me when I was little LOL

Cool idea! My granddaughter would love to have an "autographed" plate. This would probably help her sit down and eat more.
