Scissors or Craft knife, Paper towels, Rubbing alcohol, Assorted glass hurricanes and dessert pedestals w/ dome lids
- 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.
- Using patterning or stencil tape, mask assorted widths horizontally around the glass hurricanes and dome lids. Set up spray paint kit using desired colors and Gloss Medium. Spray bands where desired on glass hurricanes and dome lids. Allow to dry.
- Prepare embossed foil trims by removing them from carrier sheet. Trim paper supports or bridges using scissors or a craft knife.
- Using a soft bristle decoupage bush, apply one even, smooth coat of Decoupage Finish to the surface. (I used Gloss on all glass surfaces.)
- Apply a second smooth, even application of decoupage finish to the back side of the embossed foil trim.
- Apply the decoupage trim to the surface positioning finish to finish. Press foil trim 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.
- Continue adding foil trims to the surface until the entire decoupage design is achieved.
- Once in place and smooth, allow to dry 2 hours.
- When completely dry, brush a smooth application of decoupage finish over the entire surface being sure to seal all edges of the foil trims. Allow to dry 2 hours.
- 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.
- Project surface should be cured prior to using. Air dry project for 21 days to cure.
: 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.
