Reverse Decou-Page with DecoArt supplies Tutorial

Hi friends
I am back on my blog after a long gap ....hope you missed me some :) I am sharing a Reverse decoupage glass plate made with the awesome DecoArt supplies

I started with a 9" glass plate and using Americana Decou-Page Matte  applied the Paper Napkin on the reverse side of the glass Plate .... allow to dry and then apply another coat of  Americana Decou-Page Matte  on the paper napkin. after that was dry I applied DecoArt Media White Gesso on the decou-paged surface at the back of the plate........

I then selected a paper from the Tribal set of Specialty Decou-Page papers from DecoArt Americana Decou-Page Paper is significantly thinner than most decoupage papers and delivers an almost seamless finish. Extremely soft, durable, pliable, and workable, this special paper weight is so simple to use. It easily wraps around corners, eliminates creases and wrinkles. This comes in three coordinating pattern sheets per package ( Each sheet measures 12"x16" per package).

I selected the paper and cut according to the size and shape of the plate and dry fitted to see position at the back of decoupaged surface.

After the Metallic texture paint is dry cut little slits on the inside circle of decou-Page paper so that it fits well on the curved surface of the glass plate. Decoupage on the reverse side of the plate using Americana Decou-Page Matte , after the glue dries completely, sand the excess paper with a fine grit sandpaper....

Seal the back of the plate completely with Americana Decou-Page Matte  and after drying finish the back with a coat of Media Gesso in Black or white or Gold metallic. You need to give an opaque coating at the back as the Decou-Page papers are translucent . 

I do hope you like this project and try your hand at reverse decoupage......

leave it overnight or for 24 hours to dry completely. I used Stencils and DecoArt Modeling paste to create sun ray and stone wall textures on the MDF square board of size 8"x8". Adhered the focal element made with craft cement and Gauze with DecoArt Heavy Gel Medium and then used DecoArt  Black Gesso to cover all......

DecoArt Media Fluid acrylics in Interference Violet , Interference Blue and Interference magenta .Media Interference Fluid Acrylics include six translucent colors that shift in color and appearance depending upon the light, viewing angle and color of the surface on which they are applied.
When applied over a dark color you will see more opalescent color and less of the color shift. When applied over a light color you will see a sheer opalescent color but more of the color shift. Thin applications in a wash or glaze increase the visual interference effects......

I have highlighted all the textures with DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Burnished Brass,Gold , copper and turquoise  which is a water based metallic wax that buffs to a brilliant shine......

After all the layers were completely dry I coated the canvas with DecoArt Clear Pouring Topcoat. although this was used a a topcoat for paint pouring projects but I love the lacquer-like, high-gloss finish it provides. The Pouring topcoat is crystal clear, non tacky and self-leveling and does not yellow over time..............added some gems to finish off....
