Modern Portrait Plates

I love the look of the modern portraits!  But I do not love the price tag that comes with them.  So I set out to find a way to make my own!  DecoArt's Gloss Enamels helped me out!

Here is what you will need:
Clear glass plate
DecoArt's Gloss Enamels
Paint brushes
Edited photo

I used Picnik to edit my pictures.   It is free and easy to use!

I printed my picture onto regular paper and taped it to my plate.
I painted over the black parts with DecoArt's Gloss Enamels paints and followed the directions to let the paint harden.
I made a unique portrait of my son and daughter!

Here is a close up of the faces!

This is too cute! I LOVE the idea of putting them on a plate in that modern style! I came with a similar way of getting that look, when I wanted to carve my kids faces into pumpkins last Halloween! :)

I am going to have to do this with plates, it would be perfect for this open wall I have in my kitchen I have been wanting to decorate! :)
