Our first video tutorial!


We mentioned a few days ago that we were going to start doing a few video tutorials – and here’s the first! 

Quite a few questions came in about the DIY geek dishes that we made last week, so we hope this quick video clears things up. Also, we started our own Youtube page!

And in case you didn’t see the full post on these dishes, the supplies you’ll need are:

-Clear glass plate(s)
Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge (yes, this is a thing!)
-high res images printed out on 11 x 17 paper
-a paint brush or sponge
-X-acto knife

After you’re done, let it “cure” for at least a couple of weeks (they recommend 28 days).

As we suggested in the original post, even though this is technically dishwasher safe, we still recommend a gentle hand washing instead. Which is easy for us to say, since we don’t have a dishwasher. 🙂

We always love your feedback, so please let us know if there are any video specifics you’d like to see. We’ll try to make a couple a month for now, to see if people like them. 🙂

    Loved the video! Have you washed any of your dishes yet? I’m curious to see how well the mod podge protects the paper. I have to admit, i’m a bit skeptical, but I’ve been proven wrong before!

      Thanks! Well, technically they’re supposed to cure for 28 days before you use them. Technically. We’re not great with rules though. We did hand wash the first one that we made, about two weeks after making it (it was the test we did, before the blog post). So far so good! We don’t have a dishwasher, so can’t test that part of it, but it seemed to hold up to some water. We’ll update the posts if we notice any issues! 🙂

        Thanks! I always wonder how some of these things hold up in the long run, or if real world conditions make the supposed life of the protective coats much shorter. I guess it’s a good sign that they made it through you’re first hand washing though!

What do you think?
