Hi,
I'd like to show you some cheap plates and bowls transformed with  Decoupage under Glass.

hand is enlarged  photo copy out of Dover book, roses are from gift wrap, background is dabbed on white acrylic paint.

background is one piece of paper, with lots of slits cut into into the white parts, so that it could follow the form of the bowl

motif is cut out of gift wrap, background is sponged  with pearlescent green

motifs are victorian scraps/ die cuts

background is sponged with silver

glittery motif is cut out from gift bag and background is sponged with metallic and pearlescent paint. I find the result a bit questionable -perhaps plain kitsch Shocked

rose from gift wrap, background first got a  little bit of sparkle than simple black acrylic paint dabbed on.

background is simple brown paper you use for wrapping packages

Shocked

Breath-taking!

I love how the hand actually looks like it's coming out of the plate. Very creative!

And the roses are just gorgeous!

You must have the patience of a saint to have cut all those roses out in detail.  But it was well worth it, theyre all gorgeous.

Beautiful! I've seen a couple of your posts and I love them all. If you don't mind me asking, where do you get the images that you use?

Hi PurpleCat,
Decoupage is the technique where you glue (a) motif/s onto a surface (glue on the backside of image) and then varnish for protection. Reverse Decoupage or Decoupage under glass is the technique where your motif is glued under the plate (glue on the frontside). So you don't have to protect your motif with varnish, but the backside of the plate. Your motif comes first and your actual background is the last thing you do with your composition, so you have to think the other way round.
I hope this made sense to you?

I think PurpleCat was asking where you find the images to use.  Because I'm curious too.

Sorry, English is not my native language, but I do recall being asked whether Decoupage under glass is a technique or a book.
Anyway, I get my motifs from gift wrap, calendars, posters, victorian die cuts, high res. images found in the www. and printed out (watch out for any copy right, if you plan to sell things!!), Decoupage papers from italian companies: Calambour, Decomania,ToDo, Rossi, Grafiche Tassotti and others like Finmark, and for black and white motifs there are the books from Dover Pictorial Archives (www.doverpublicatio ns.com). Also I use napkins and scanned and printed photos. Don't use real photos, it won't work!  You can use (self) painted motifs or an original art work as well, but always make a copy or two of them and use the copy, because mistakes will happen and you have to start again. Copy shops can also help you to blow up a motif  the size you need. So, endless posssiblities there.

There is actually just one trick for getting motifs, and that is to keep your eyes open Grin
I hope I could help you

These are beautiful! I never thought to do decoupage under glass. Is there a way to make the pieces so they can be washed, or are they just for display? Display is fine, I'm just trying to get it all sorted out in my head Smiley
