Here is the issue. In the process of moving things out of mother's house, I've brought home her good china and her good GOOD china. The everyday stuff was icky...it's still in the cabinet at her house. Anyhow, when my grandmother passed away in 2001, I inherited her REALLY GOOD china. In addition, I have my own china. Yes, I'm keeping all of it...I can mix and match and have a really good time.
Since I now have something like 60 dinner plates and rarely (LOL) have 60 people over for dinner, I want to put my grandmother's monogram on one of her plates, mother's on one of hers, and mine on one of mine, then display the three together. Good idea, don't you think??
Here is the problem. I consulted with the art coordinator at work and she says that she doesn't think finding someone to paint the monograms on will work...she thinks that the paint will peel off if the plates aren't "fired" or something like that, after being painted.
Anybody out there have any ideas or expertise in this area?
