diy project: skinny laminx plate transfers

i’m loving these ceramic transfers that heather (skinny laminx) and jesse breytenbach have created. after drawing little plants she had collected on a walk on table mountain, heather turned her drawings into transfers and applied them dinner plates. they were made for a show in johannesburg (and promptly sold out), but thankfully heather created a fantastic tutorial on how to create your own plates like this. for the full instructions click herethanks heather!

[stay tuned for one more diy project at 2pm today- lauren and derek are back! and their projects will take you right back to summer camp]

  6. At the risk of calling out something that was totally obvious and intentional…I just love how the plants were from “table mountain” and she made them into dinnerware!!
