How to Make Antique Plates

Standard

You need antiquing medium, printed papers, decoupage medium, (definitely not water based) varnish and your old glass plates. Be careful, you nee be patient, glass painting is hard for the impatient people like me. You need to wait one day on every layer, hard to dry.

Whatever you do on wood painting, you need to do it inverse. First paint with antiquing medium, then decoupage, then paint the color, and finally varnish it. Afterwards, you can wash the plates by hand. Just paint the bottom of the plate if you use it to eat yummy things…

Our plates are elegant and antique now hihi. I will serve Pilav today to our guests.

How to Make a Posh Present with the Cheapest Soap

Standard

I bought the cheapest soap and all I use was plaid decoupage finish, laser printed paper, the cheapest ribbon and scissors. The soap transformed in to very posh presents… I painted the soap all over with decoupage finish. Therefore, it will be so resistant to the water.

Sailing Tray

Standard

This tray had not nice edges so I used wood paste to have a smooth surface and then I loved the aging view, just kept it like that… The decoupage pages are from an old National Geographic magazine which I do not really appreciate due to their attitude how showing people like aliens sometimes. Like, they are normal and civilized and others not…

Anyway, this is a new technique; wood aging with wood paste, and hope you like it…

A Present

I wanted to prepare a present for my brother in law, he is a professor designing robots and attending Robocup since I know him.

I found a beautiful smart cartoon at Alex Noriega Sketchblog. I was so excited and just could wait to ask Alex to use it but I hope he will be happy to know, lots of serious professors and science students will have a look at it…

Aged Wood BoX

I wanted to paint a really black box while I started it. Then, I got this aged wood box with decoupage…
To have aged wood you can use an ordinary candle and sandpaper. First, paint black, then rub candle, then paint beige color, finally sandpaper…
