Skull Plates

Skull PlateOkay, technically you could do this with any image, but c’mon…skulls!

Designer Mark Montano has written the Big-Ass Book of Crafts, and is sharing some of the projects on his blog. He includes this easy tutorial for making fantastic-looking glass plates with a skull motif.

The instructions are extremely straightforward, and the result is just stunning. With a selection of clipart and some paint, you could make an entire set of gorgeous themed dinnerware very inexpensively.

I’d love to see this done with some old woodcuts or vintage anatomical illustrations.
