I tried this with cabinet white knobs. Followed directions, baked in oven.
The color came off with simple use in a matter of days.
In other words it didn’t work.
I got the tip from Pinterest
The knobs might have had some other coating on them that ceramic plates don't. Sorry it didn't work for you!
Love this idea!..
I have read that if you let the project dry for 24hours after completing your work, then put in a COLD oven turn up heat to around 350f and bake for around 15 to 20 minutes I believe (?) this will make them permanent, even dishwasher safe (?)..
I have my plates all ready to go .. so we shall see.. very excited to give this a whirl!
Thank you for your inspiration!
