1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Meta Mirror - Grandparents kissing! Eww! on: December 09, 2006 04:49:43 PM
My grandmother unearthed a picture of herself and my grandfather kissing in the mirror. 
 
I bought a raw wood mirror on clearance for $7 several months ago.  A perfect decoupage combination.


How very meta.


This is the back of the photo where Grandma has written, "Can't stand this stuff!"  I can picture her feeling rebellious for both the contraction and the word, "stuff."



These are images printed out on an ink jet printer.  I used Aleen's Decoupage Glue, which I prefer over Modge Podge.  By itself, it didn't cause the image to run.  When I tried to mix it with water to thin it out, then I had problems.  I only spread the glue on the back but wasn't too fussy about keeping it off the front.  I think I might spray a layer of shellack over it since Windex seems to cut through the glue.  That was lucky since I didn't protect the glass at all.  Any suggestions?
