Decorated Glass Plates



  1. Buy clear glass plates. Flip over and clean the back with Windex or good cleaner.
  2. Use magazines, decoupage paper, wrapping paper etc. Cut to fit center or cut out shapes. Using decoupage glue or reverse decoupage glue, put on a smooth fine coat. Lay picture down and smooth out rubbing from inside to outer edges. Let dry.
  3. Apply another coat of glue, making sure the edges have glue so the paint will not bleed through your pictures. You may want to add more than one coat. Let dry.
  4. Either spray paint the back or hand paint. Use Wal-Mart brand spray paint if they have the color you need. Let dry between coats. Use a sweeping motion when spray painting to keep from running. It takes about 4 to 6 light coats to cover well.

These are NOT dishwasher safe, but can be washed off.
