I'm presuming that these are glass plates and that you decoupaged the papers on the backside (the underside) of them. I had no idea that you could buy clear glass plates in other than round shapes! Where did you find them? (anyplace that has a store in the US?)

Will you use them for serving food?

Will they be washable?

Great job!

I posted a question about just this kind of project, but didn't get any answers.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181360.0

How do you keep the paper from getting all wrinkly around the "corners" and at the same time keep the pattern from going all wonky?  Anyone have any suggestions for glue?  I'd appreciate any help I could get!  Thanks in advance!


Excuse me but I can't understand exactly what you ask  Embarrassed  for this first plate I used a paper napkin, but I peeled to get only one coat of paper that's why it looked wrinkle, and second isn't wrikle, what you see "more yellow" is an effect of rice paper.

About glue I think I used Ultra Gloss by DecoArt, but I can't be sure because it was in a bottle without label, tomorrow I'll ask  Wink

Sorry if I can't be more useful for you, that's my first time and I have no idea about this technique I learn about day by day...

Yeah, they are glass plates decorated at the underside, I bought them at a dollar store, well, not really a dollar store because I live in Spain, but this kind of store you know  Smiley. Anyway it isn't difficult to find square plates, I saw them at kitchen-ware store, furniture store even at craft stores. I'm sure you won't have problems to find them Wink

Will they be washable?

Great job!

No, they can't be used as common food plates, they are only for decoration uses


Thansk to all for your compliments  Wink

ank you for replying!  And for the glue information.  Maybe this is a better way to ask the question: because the plate is not flat on the bottom, doesn't the paper wrinkle when you wrap it up the sides?  It does nogt look wrinkled... so maybe that's because it is very thin paper?

This is the artist who inspired me to try to decoupage on glass.  He uses an epoxy to seal the bottom and I think that you could use them for appetizers and handwashing. http://johnderian.com/index_decoupage.html

I found a plain glass square plate at Linens 'n' Things or Bed, Bath, and Beyond - can't remember which.

The first two are great. I don't like the last one too much. I'm not a fairy fan.

OOOOOOOOOOOk now I can undestand what you wanted to say, yeah, the truth is very difficult to keep straight the paper when you arrive at corners where plate is curved, but thin paper suits well (better than thick).
At the same time thin paper like I used easily got wrinkled and you have to be careful not to broke it when you smooth down.
Each paper has its pros and cons, the best thing you can do is experimenting and judge by yourself  Wink

Those are beautiful and so unique!  Excellent work.  I love the first on the best, it's the style I'm trying to design my room around.
