How to Make The Giving Plate
With a Sharpie marker, you are going to want to write The Giving Plate in tall block letters in the center of the plate. Make sure your plate is cleaned and dried really well.
The plate needs to be microwave safe.
Now around the outside of the plate, you can write your other words. Enjoy, refill, pass, enjoy, etc. I did a cursive border on the plate. But feel free to do whatever you would like.
Place the plate in a cold oven, and then turn the oven to 300 degrees. Allow the plate to warm up gradually, and bake for 30 minutes.
Turn the oven off, leaving the plate in the oven to cool down.
Once cooled, remove, wash, and then use.

Can You Wash The Plate
You can wash the plate once it is finished being baked in the oven. Baking the plate in the oven once it is written on with the Sharpie. It will bake on the plate. So then you can hand wash the plate.
I wouldn’t recommend using a dishwasher on the plate, you might find that is a bit too harsh and could remove some of the writing on the plate over time.
