How to Make Your Happy Birthday Plate

  1. Lay the cake portion of your stencil on the center of the plate and apply Hey Y’all Gel Art Ink to it with your spreader. Remove the stencil and wash it, then lay it flat to dry.
  2. Mix Bless His Heart Gel Art Ink with Pretty As a Picture Gel Art Ink to make a magenta color. Apply to the Happy Birthday part of the stencil. Then, remove the stencil, wash it, and lay it flat to dry.
  3. Lay the gift stencil to each side of the cake. Apply Magenta Gel Art Ink and Hey Y’all to alternate the colors of the gifts. Remove the stencils then wash and lay them flat to dry.

From there, it’s simply a matter of letting your Gel Art Ink dry before use! Also, make sure to wash the plate(s) gently by hand to prevent damage.
