Make This Ceramic Face Plate

Home DIY May 6, 2021

I love a quick and easy upcycle, and this ceramic face plate only took 10 minutes to complete.

I found this plate at my local Vinnies and transformed into a face plate using my tried and tested Trash To Terracotta method. I love how this paint makes anything look like rustic, hand spun beauties. In case you’re interested it’s not food safe – so for now it is purely for decorating but is perfect for displaying jewellery or as a simple centrepiece.


  • Paint and baking powder to create DIY Ceramic Effect Chalk Paint. See this blog post here for the full list of instructions.
  • Terracotta Paint 
  • Plate
  • Pencil
  • Paintbrushes (a 2cm wide brush for ceramic effect, and a fine tip brush for painting the face)

How To

  1. Mix the DIY Ceramic Effect Chalk Paint
  2. Using the 2cm wide brush, paint on the chalk paint. To give the effect of hand spun ceramic, paint in a circle motion making rings from the middle of the plate outwards.
  3. Let paint dry.
  4. Using a pencil, lightly sketch a face image on the plate.
  5. Go over the sketch with terracotta paint with a fine tip paintbrush.
  6. Finished! So simple and done in less than 10 minutes.
