Using some painters tape I quickly masked off the edges and the stand. I wanted the edges to remain clear so no contact between paint and food would occur and to leave a little boarder detail. I sprayed the stand on the inside to allow the glass to keep the super shiny appearance. An added benefit will be that the paint won’t get worn off from hands holding it there.
I turned the plate upside down and sprayed three coats allowing it to dry for a few minutes between of course. The metallic spray appears dark gray through the glass but is shiny silver from below. It’s a bit difficult to capture the silver color on my camera, but it turned out a pleasing contemporary color that I adore. Then I went to work making a whimsical fun circle and dot pattern on the dome.
Wouldn’t a wedding cake topper look super inside it too?
