How to Create a Cute Gilded Ring Dish

Gilded Ring dish with heartHow often do you need a simple gift for someone? Today I’ll show you how to create a cute gilded ring dish that would make a nice birthday, anniversary, get well, shower, or bridesmaid gift. You could also add a name, date, or other information to make it extra special.

  • Materials:
  1. Small dipping dish (Mine is about 4″ X 4″)
  2. Rubbing alcohol
  3. Outdoor vinyl
  4. Transfer paper
  5. Krylon Leafing Pen (I am IN LOVE with these)
  6. Red Capped Blade (Sometimes I use blue)
  7. Make the Cut software
  • Settings for KNK Zing:
  1. Force – 15
  2. Speed – 10
  3. Multicut – 1
  • Steps:
  1. Import or copy design into MTC
  2. Cut vinyl and weed
  3. Apply transfer paper
  4. Wipe dish with alcohol and let dry
  5. Apply vinyl
  6. Apply gold leafing pen to edge of dish

Applying Krylon Gold Leafing Pen to Edge of DishI thought it would be difficult to apply the gold leafing. However, I found it was simple to do because the tip of the leafing pen just kind of forms to the edge, making it easy to keep it nice and straight. It took two coats of it to completely cover. I simply let the first coat dry, and went right over it again. It only takes a few minutes to dry enough to re-coat.

Here’s a ring dish I completed tonight…. just for me!   (Oh… and for those of you that didn’t know, the “UP” stands for the upper peninsula of Michigan.)Upper Peninsula Ring Dish

  1. I am going to have to order a pen or two. :O) I have 2 dishes sitting next to my Maxx waiting to be personalized, I bought them at Target for under $3. Are you in the UP? I am in WI.
