To tell you the truth the pot stands are still not that dry so I had to be really carefull when I took the pictures for you. But because of that I've not been able to actually test if the paint works. I have no idea what will happen if I put a burning hot pan on top of them. I don't know if the book said anything about the use after painting, I just flipped it through, remember? Would the pan stick to the paint, possibly melting it or burning it. I have no clue. I'll let you know once I've done some testing. But it was fun to paint those anyway, it's no biggie if the paint doesn't work.
Update: The paint on the pot stands work great, no melting or burning so far.
