decorative print, stickers, words etc.
Mod Podge, by Plaid
Spry fixative or Polyurethane
Directions: You will be working on the back side of the plate. Cut tissue paper in approximately 1 inch squares. Use your imagination, you may use one color as I did, or use more than one color. Apply the decorative elements first, angel and words in my case, face down. Apply the Mod Podge to the plate and then the elements. (I use a foam brush.) After you have your design elements adhered to the plate with no ripples or wrinkles, you may apply the tissue paper squares. I did the brush in the Mod Podge and pick up the tissue squares with the wet brush. Randomly place the squares on the plate to cover all the surfaces. It's ok the allow the square to stick out over the edge of the plate. You can use a utility knife to trim the excess. If the plate still has rough edges from the paper, sand it with fine grit paper. Apply fixative if you wish. The front can be washed, but I would not soak the plate. I make them for decorations.
Have fun and let me know if you make one. I'd love to see pictures. Here's a close-up picture:Trudi
