The Live Word Plaque is great as a gift, a holiday decoration, or decor for a shelf or table throughout the year. This plaque stands up by itself because of its 1" flat bottom. The letters are wide which makes them easy to decorate with any design or pattern. Price includes the $9 paint/glazing/firing to-go kit fee. To-Go Kits include up to 5 colors of paint (1 oz each) and a set of brushes. Simply bring the pieces back at your convenience to be glazed and fired once it is safe to do so!
