  • Serving Platter ???

    I have a serving platter I need to coat and I'm wondering how to coat both sides. Once the PC is cured can I flip it over and do the other side without hurting or marking up the first side?

    There's no way you can hang it?

    I don't know what kind of platter you are doing or whatever - but I tried putting a clear on a sterling silver platter once and I think the heat tarnished the silver so once it was cured it had a milky, not silver at all finish. At least I am fairly certain it was the silver that tarnished - I am 95% sure I did not over cure the clear.

        Yes, just do the top first, then support the bottom on any sort of device you can come up with that will give minimum contact, like 3 small nails.

          Why are you coating a serving platter? If you are going to serve food on this it should be FDA approved

            I know of this,but it's a memorialbilia (probably didn't spell that right) not a food tray. You know done in colors and under the clear says congrats etc. etc. type of deal. Besides my wife is a "state of Illinois public health certified" resturant general mgr. I don't think she is going to let me do anything that is going to hurt someone. If it would make you feel better I can post her certification so you can check it out. Now will you help me with my question?

              I'm looking for ideas on coating both sids of this platter. So far I have one. I am not doing this for a business to serve food on. So it doesn't have to be approved by the NSF for food service.

                This question I have one reply and I was hoping for more ideas also. Then I would have some ways to try to see what works best for my situation. I am not doing this for food service so it doesn't need to be NSF approved. And I am not mad at King, I know her heart is in the right place and she is all business.

                    If she would let you.......you could support it on the bottom with something in the middle (round maybe) then using some of the green felt material they use on the bottom of lamps and things. No one could ever tell it was not coated.

                        My only concern my Friend and for all other coaters is that some items have to have FDA approved powders if they are to be used in certain applications. I have seen items coated that do not meet these standards that could get the custom coater in big trouble! Please understand, I really do care about our customers, whom I consider my extended familiy and friends. Sometimes I am short on the forum without realising it...please do not take offense. I put out fires all day long and sometimes my hose gets limpy

                          I hate it when my hose gets limpy. Good thing Shelley is always here to help!

                          Anyway Harley, I think the 3 nail suggestion is a good one.
