There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Hi there!  I'm new as a non-lurker and have been trying to get some learned advice on decoupaging onto glass, then coating it with resin a la John Derian: http://www.johnderian.com/index_decoupage.html.

I've never used resin (but I bought some when I was full of hope) as well as an inexpensive square glass plate.  I've seen his things in person, the decoupage is on the underside (or outside of glasses), then painted or gilded, then resined - so it seems to me. 

What adhesive do you use to stick to glass that also won't show as texture or discoloration?  Any tips on keeping the paper from buckling, bubbling and wrinkling?  How do you keep the resin neat around the edges? 

I'm so unsure of the whole thing, but so drawn to the idea of making something cool and functional with all this copyright-free art I have!

Sounds like a great technique.  I haven't done it, but if I were to do it, this is how I would start.  Modge podge the pic and smooth it out with slightly wet fingers to eliminate the bubbles - it may take a little work, but be patient.  Let it completely dry.  When you pour the resin, I would place the plate on top of a small block, on top of waxed paper.  Start pouring from the middle and pour slowly.  You will know when to stop.  As it is drying, go back to it a few times and gently, without touching it anywhere else, run a popsicle stick around the edges.  If you get any drips that do dry, just dremel them off.  I do that with tiles.  I'd love to see a completed picture.
