I hope these pictures work for y'all as I just got them posted to my webpage on my ISP, which I hate and am convinced they are out to make my life miserable.  Anyway, the first one should show & you can click the URL's for the other two & see them yourselves!

Anyway, I have made many, many a decoupaged plate, and I figured that I would try something different.  When I did the plate, I left a 3 X 3 inch square blank in the center by simply taping a piece of paper in that place so I would know where to stop gluing pictures.  When I finished gluing the pics (I used watered down Elmer's, you could use Mod Podge, etc.), I painted the back (except for the taped-off square) with acrylic paint.  I let that dry & then coated it with Krylon Triple-Thick Glaze.  I cut a piece of clear cellophane to fit the edges of the open square, and then glued it on, and glued some grosgrain ribbon around that to seal the rough edges.  Then, I found a picture of a cute, cute nephew & cut it to fit, with a little extra at the top so I could easily remove it & change it out if need be.

And here you have it:

By any chance is the plate washable after you put the glaze on it?  That would make a cute cake plate for a birthday.

Well, I personally would not submerge it in water, as I have not tested the glaze for that sort of durability.  There is some product you can use to seal decoupaged plates for regular use as food receptacles, but I don't know what it's called;  I think it's sort of a secret or something.   Undecided  But I have used a damp cloth to dust the fronts of my plates many times, so you could probably eat a piece of cake off one, as long as you didn't get anything on the back.

Thanks so much.  I have made a couple of decoupage plates as wedding gifts.  I took the invitation to my sister-in-law's wedding & put it on a plate for her just last month.  Everybody thought it was so cool, and had no idea it was just paper & glue on the back of the plate.  If I can find a picture of it, I'll post that as well.
