More shrink plastic dollhouse plates–Franciscan Coronado

My girls were excited about these because we eat off of life-sized versions of the turquoise ones. I forgot to brighten these before printing them, so I’m going to try a new set tomorrow to get the nice pastel colors. (In a rare reversal, these photos look better than the real-life plates.)

I think I burned my left thumb a little while I was making these, but I can’t tell because my thumb is numb.

(Instructions are in the previous post.)

    And since your instructions are on your blog, I will ask here, as I did on fb, what dollhouse sized dish(es) you used as molds for these? Because these look perfectly like Franciscan ware.

      Do you want me to answer here, or on FB? šŸ™‚

      We couldn’t find a mold that fits these–we had one plate with a rim, but the rim was much wider than on the Franciscan plates. So we just used a plate that has a slight curvature but no rim. I’ve been trying to think what someone could use if they didn’t have a dollhouse dish already, and Dean thought maybe the end of a broom handle would work (but I haven’t tried it yet). Or maybe a ping-pong ball?

      The reason you see a rim is because there’s one in the photo I used for the template. These actually do that optical illusion thing where they alternately look concave or convex depending on how you look at them.
