“Feminist Killjoy” Custom Lettered & Embossed Trinket Plate

A new custom piece due out the door means a new opportunity for a video .. this time showing the process of hand lettering on ceramic plates meant for display on shelves, as a part of gallery walls, or even to be used as a catch-all for jewelry. (They are strictly decorative and mustn’t go through dishwashers!)

The Ranger embossing pen sticks well to the surface, so long as it is properly cleaned and dried, as the pen is loaded with very sticky ink for the embossing powder to stick to. I loosely planned out the design before going for it. I used Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder and my Heat It! craft tool. It takes longer to get the powder to melt on ceramic than on paper, and you have to be careful not to get too close and scorch the surface while at the same time getting it to melt evenly.

Overall I definitely think it’s worth it for the result.
