How Do You Use the Big Rectangle from Plate M052?

Posted by Devon Nurre

Ever wonder what the big rectangle is used for on the Pardon My French Plate. Thanks to Tina P. , from the Maniology Facebook Community, you don’t have to wonder anymore! Here's a video that she put together showing exactly how she uses this design.

Did you notice how Tina applies polish to the plate and the directions that she scrapes? Experimenting with polish application on the plate will cause various results, for example if you dot the polish on versus painting it on in a line. The same can be said about scraping directions, Tina scraped in multiple directions which created a pretty, mixed tie dye look. However if she scraped in the same diagonal direction as the polish lines the result would have been a diagonal gradient. Have you tried different techniques with the rectangular space on the Pardon My French plate? If so please share your experience with us in the comment section below!
