Today I'm using a large wooden plate very much like this one I found at the thrift store. You could use any kind of plate or platter.

I gave the plate a coat of black chalky paint then a coat of  White over the top when the black dried. 

I used 220 grit sand paper to lightly sand off some of the white so the Graphite showed through.

Using one of my favorite Vintage Sign Stencils from Knick of Time.

I used the black paint once again to stencil the image onto the plate. 

When the stencil was dry I sealed the paint.
