How to decorate plates so you can eat off of them

Do you remember my post about decorative display plates? Those plates are great if you are just going to hang your plate on the wall, but, what if you want to eat off it? This is the solution.

Decorate your glass plates with Pebeo Porcelain paint pens. I got a set of four at Michael's for about $15, this would be a great item to use your 40% off coupon with. Color your plates or trace your hands with the markers. Afterward, let your plates dry for about 24 hours, then bake them in a 300 degree oven for 30 minutes. Voila, your plate will hold up to the wear and tear of eating. It has actually held up to the dishwasher too.

I will be doing this...Where did you find the plates? Can it be any kind? I will be checking Goodwill for some great oven safe ones if you don't have to be particular.
