This craft isn’t limited to just sports—you can make a personalized plate for just about any occasion but there are a few tips to consider.
Oil-based markers can be used on your plate but not all markers adhere well to ceramic. We recommend using porcelain markers—they work on a variety of hard surfaces so it’s practically an all-in-one marker!
Sudden temperature changes can cause the plate to crack or break, so let it cool off inside the oven after baking.
Once baked, these markers are dishwasher-safe but use a non-abrasive sponge to prevent scratches.
