Tools & Materials Needed:
- Wagner FURNO Heat Gun
- Glass plates in various sizes
- Paper ephemera
- Decoupage medium
- Paint brush
- Bowl of water
- Piece of sponge
- Plastic bowl scraper
- Copper or gold acrylic paint
Make a template for each plate by tracing the shape of the plate on paper first and cutting out the shape. Place the template over paper ephemera and cut out the design you want to transfer to the plate.
Place cut ephemera in a bowl of water to soak for one minute. Remove and let dry.
Wet a sponge in water and then apply the decoupage medium to the sponge. Flip the plate upside down and cover the bottom of the plate with decoupage medium, keeping the coating smooth.
Place the paper design upside down on the plate so that the image will show through.
Gently smooth any bubbles from the paper with a bowl scraper and use the Wagner Furno heat gun on low to dry paper art until fully dry.
Paint the edge of the plate with a bronze or gold paint. Dry completely with the heat gun. Wipe the glass clean if dirty.
