4th of July Platter - and a Sprinkles Cupcake Giftcard Giveaway!

4th of July cupcakes courtesy of Sprinkles.
The 4th of July is only a week away, but it's not too late to make some snazzy platters to hold your goodies. Here are two ideas of plates to create at your local paint-on-pottery shop! Special thanks to Sprinkles for donating the cupcakes for the photo - check the bottom of this post to enter in a giveaway!

You'll need to select some Duncan bisque, I went with an oblong platter and a large square one. And then you'll need Duncan Concepts Underglazes in red, white and blue. Brushes and Pure Brilliance Glaze are needed too. You can find all the product details here. 

 Base coat your platters as desired. I went with all white for one of them, and red and blue for the other. The contrast is nice once they are fired, they'll compliment each other!

 I used thin tape down the center of the platter and then used a Tulip Sponge Pouncer to create dots. For the outside, I used the tip of the paintbrush and made a hecka lot of polka dots!

 For the second platter, I used a Tulip Flexible Stencil and applied white paint with the pouncer. When you're finished, coat with two layers of Pure Brilliance and then fire at Cone 6.

GIVEAWAY: Leave a comment sharing what you'll be crafting up for the 4th of July and we'll draw one name on Friday to win a $20 gift card to Sprinkles Cupcakes

  4. I don't know if I'm making anything to be honest. I have to stay home with my dogs due to the fireworks issues; I don't dare leave them alone. Everyone we know will probably be having their own cookouts and/or clambakes on the Cape. I am hoping to get to the parade in town though!
