    I want to make these....

    but have no experience with dinnerwear at all :)

    What kind of paint can you use? After painting you would have to glaze it right? Anyone have any instructions?

    From the info on that site and my own limited ceramics experience, looks like they sand them down to get a porous surface, then "paint" with underglaze, then glaze with a clear glaze. Then it needs to be fired in a kiln.

    Regular paints will burn when they go into a kiln, but if you're getting access to a kiln you'll get access to people who can do a much better job of helping you than me :)

    I just looked at the picture...and I get the impression they alter the plates...but you can make equally creative ones by buying ceramic plates and tracing/drawing, painting, glazing and firing them in a kiln. Those are definately fired. I used to help one of those people that owned the ceramic painting studios glaze and fire the ceramics and pottery.
