It’s one of the decoupage ideas I wanted to do for a good while. I could not find a fitting glass plate for it though.
This plate is decoupaged in traditional Ukraine folk style. What you need for this decoupage project is to find a transparent glass plate. The trick is to decoupage the plate and still leave it usable.
This glass plate is decoupaged on the other side.
Here is how you do it. You clean and dry the plate well first. This gets is ready to be decoupaged. I used PVC glue, you may use mode podge or transparent furniture polish for your decoupage ideas.
Next, you cut out the napkin patterns and place them the best way onto the plate. You glue them the bright side down to the backward of the plate. This way, when you turn the plate around, you can see the pattern through the glass.
Let it dry well. Then you take a sponge and dip it into some colorful, golden, silver or other color acrylic paint. I used silver paint on the edges of the plate. Apply the paint with the gentle strokes of the sponge. Let it dry.
Now use white or any other color paint to cover the entire plate from the back end. Cover up the decoupaged fragments well, too. Let it dry. Finally, cover the back end with more polish to make it water proof. That’s it. It’s a pretty doable decoupage idea on glass, which gives you much space for your creativity.
