I wanted my husband and I to have some pretty plates for our Christmas dinner. I found these clear glass plates and decided I'd make my own. I used Martha Stewart Glitter Finish; you can find it at any Home Depot or Lowe's. I painted the back of the plate, it took about 5 coats, let it dry and then used polyurethane to seal it. Simple and pretty! I would recommend hand-washing if you make your own glitter plate.
