Decoupage a glass plate Tutorial

After few request here is a Tutorial on how I decoupage my glass plates:

You will need: 
a glass plate
a pretty paper napkin 
Foam brush
and white silk or rice paper
some varnish

Start by peeling of the two white layer or your napkins 
and cut the part that you want to apply on the plate

Apply a layer of modpodge on your clean plate (at the back)

Gently glue the paper napkin face on the glass
and add another layer of modpodge

Let dry

Cut the extra paper around

and apply the silk paper with more modpodge!

Smooth the surface with your finger 

add more modpodge!

When it's dry repeat the cutting edge all around.

To remove some wrinkles you can iron the plate with a low iron 
and a parchment paper on top to protect it.
To finish it apply few layers of varnish at the back

I hope you enjoyed!
and that will inspire you to make a nice Santa plate too!
(Or any other design!)
