First you need your supplies: a clear glass plate or bowl, some tissue paper, a craft blade and, most importantly, one of my favorite products, Mod Podge!!!! it's not secret, I love that stuff. I'm using the Matte finish.
Cover the back of the dish in Mod Podge but don't let it dry. Remember, you are covering the back of the dish with the tissue, placing the tissue front side down. This will allow the right side of the tissue to show through the front of the plate.
You can place your dish on top of something so that it is easier to work with. I used a can with a kitchen cloth so that my plate will not move around or get scratched.
Gently pour some Mod Podge on top of your tissue paper and smear all over with your fingers. You need to be gently as you don't want to tear the tissue paper. In case you do tear, just cut out another piece and glue it on top with the Mod Podge. Smear out all the air bubbles. If you have a stubborn bubble, you can easity pop it with a needle and then smoth the tissue out.
You will have wrinkles but it's okay, it adds character so don't freak out. Let your work dry for about an hour and then come back and carefully tear out the extra tissue. Use a craft knife with or without a handle. If you notice that it needs more glue around the edges, go ahead and apply and smooth out and let dry.
It's that easy! and you have a finished beautiful plate. It's not machine washable but the Mod Podge is also a sealer so you can hand wash it. Mod Podge is non toxic but it is water based so when washing your plate, don't submerge in water, simply rinse and dry immediately.
I Mod Podge not the best?? My last PS post I did a lamp shade with it! Congrats on your first PS post! Have a great PS and weekend too! Sherri @lavenderfieldsReplyDelete

Happy Pink Saturday. Oh my goodness I am so thrilled with your blog. You have some of the most wonderful crafts to share.

Now I have to tell you the clay with they stamp project you did? I adore that. How very beautiful. Your plate today is just gorgeous. You could cover plates and use them for the wall. How pretty they would be. I love it so much.
