I decoupaged a napkin on glass and it isn't showing through the way I would have liked. It's very light and faint looking. Should I have painted the glass first?
In projectslike this I always like to use a product called Matte Medium, that GOld or Liquitex acrylics puts out - it dries the clearest of all other glue type things I've seen, and it is very hardy. https://www.ama ce/dp/B000IYWYNE
You might try this product instead of whatever glue you used and that might make a difference
Here are some other ideas: http://gomakeso ecoupaged-glass/
There are special decoupage glues. Did you use one of them?
I am working on some spice jars, and they are glass. I have printed out some labels I have designed and was wondering if mod podge will work for this, so when they need washing I can wash the jars. If so how do you recommend that I do this? Do I just put it over the label or do I need to put some mod podge on the jar first then put the sticker on and then another coat over the top of the label?
MOd Podge can work. I have used it before. But I find that for this sort of thing whta you want is Matte Medium, which is this special super resistant and clear drying acrylic product
This can work. There is a whole page on the Modge Podge bloggers website that tells you how:
I have been doing paper napkin crafts on glass for about 4 years off and on since A.C. Moore (a local craft store) came to Maine. I was just wondering what I could use other than using Mod Podge to put the nakins on the glass. Is there any other glue that you can put on glass? I tried Mod Podge glue but it leaves the paper bumpy and you can see the glue.
You can thin mod podge with water, too, but white glue is cheaper. If you do a lot of this, buy big bottles of glue at hardware/home improvement store.
Aleene makes a paper napkin applique glue that works great! You can get it at the craft store. I used it to make a piggy, and she looks great.
You can use a white glue like Elmer's. If it's a bit thick, then just add a bit of water...but that probably won't be necessary. Have fun!!!
walmart has one but i'm afraid i've forgooten the name of it. i found it in the fabric and craft section
