Painted plates

Yesterday i went to Goodwill and found these etched glass plates.  When i saw them i thought they would be pretty if they were colored.  Then i remembered seeing the Piecrust Dinner Plate at Anthropologie and liked them a lot so i thought i would try my own version.  I couldn't decide what color to choose so i picked a few different ones out.  I had to apply a few coat of paint to the back.  Spray paint would have probably worked better because the brush left some streaks.   Afterwards i applied some sealer/finisher.  Since the paint is on the bottom you could eat on them, but I'm not sure how they will hold up with washing them.  But they make for other pretty uses...
