Bloke showed me how to put tape on the plate to stop the drill bit from skidding around. I used a 6mm tile drill bit (borrowed from my dad)but some plates were easier than others. Earthenware plates were fine but bone china ones were much harder to drill. Unfortunately the prettiest plates we had were all bone china so we have had to buy new drill bits because I burnt out my dads one. Whoops!
This one has a sort of game bird theme with pheasants and ducks but I think it will be a one off customer who wants this one!
It has been a very enjoyable upcycling project.
So, ten more to go...
It is showtime here tomorrow so today we will be busy, baking, collecting, harvesting and crafting all day long - so much Fun, fun, fun! Jo x
