I am attempting to make a teapot stand using a white square tile and a picture (of the Mad Hatter's Tea party) I downloaded from Google images. I glued the picture to the tile with PVC glue that dries clear and when dry I painted on another coat to protect the picture.
But when I eventually put my teapot on it, the picture wasn't sealed and now has a big white ring on it from the bottom of the teapot. Is there another way to protect the picture so that it is heatproof?
Do you think if I laminated the picture, then glued it on, that it would be protected or would the heat from the teapot melt the plastic? Thank you.

How can I make a tile that I have decorated with paper into a hot plate? I used something like Mod Podge to bond the paper onto the tile then I varnished with water based varnish. I am not sure how water/heat resistant a tile like this would be.

Lisa, I was surfing and saw this product and I remembered seeing your question. I "do not" know if this will work, but it says "heat and alcohol resistant". I thought I'd let you see it and decide for yourself. http://www.fabricspraypaint.com/Default.asp?Item=DS3801090MandName=Finish_Perfect">
