Scissors or Craft knife, Paper towels, Rubbing alcohol, Assorted glass plates

Instructions

  1. Prepare all glassware by washing in warm soapy water, rinse well and thoroughly dry. Moisten a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe over entire glass surface to remove any remaining dirt, grease or soap residue. Allow to dry.
  2. Prepare white paper doilies by removing them from the package.
  3. Using a soft bristle decoupage bush, apply one even, smooth coat of Decoupage Finish to the underneath side of the glass plate surface. (I used Gloss on all glass surfaces.)
  4. Apply a second smooth, even application of decoupage medium to the front side of the paper doily.
  5. Apply the paper doily to the surface positioning finish to finish. Press white paper doily onto the surface, smoothing from the center towards the edges. This will remove trapped air pockets and excess decoupage finish. Wipe away excess finish with damp paper towel.
  6. Continue adding doilies or sections of doilies to the surface until the entire decoupage design is achieved.
  7. Once in place and smooth, allow to dry 2 hours.
  8. When completely dry, brush a smooth application of decoupage finish over the entire surface being sure to seal all edges of the paper doilies. Allow to dry 2 hours.
  9. Brush a second coat of decoupage finish over the entire surface and allow to dry 2 hours. NOTE: If decoupage item will serve a purpose other than decorative only, a third top application of decoupage finish may be required.
  10. Using foam pouncers, apply paint to the backside of each plate. Using Surf, Greek Tile and Pond, paint the entire backside of the glass plate and over the paper doily. Allow to dry.
  11. Project surface should be cured prior to using. Air dry project for 21 days to cure.

Tip: When decoupaging on glass, it is recommended to use the mop-type decoupage brush being careful to stroke the decoupage medium in one direction using light pressure to avoid streaky brush marks.
