Wonders Never Cease

Who says people don’t read or follow directions!

Closing the brick & mortar must have given me all the inspiration I needed to learn how to build my online shop. Bye, bye Etsy … it’s been real.

Besides, it took Sylvester Stallone 10 years to get Rocky on the big screen. I beat him by 2 years. Insert me patting myself on the back here. I did it!

Decoupage and Mosaic Tile

Easy Mosaic Tile Glass Collage – Crash Glass-Decoupage

Decoupage was my first love and after attending a crash glass class using a 2-part epoxy … it got me thinking … why go to all the trouble working with toxic adhesives when I can do the same thing with Weldbond.

Feeling it!

Painted the trivet and let it dry overnight.  Glued the paper to the trivet with Weldbond and let it dry. Don’t get carried away with the glue. Just brush on enough glue to attach the papers and let it dry before adding a couple more layers of glue, letting it dry each time.

laying out the design

When the papers were dry, I glued the tile border with Weldbond. Then filled in the rest with the glass by smearing Weldbond onto the back of each glass piece so it won’t puddle and refuse to dry clear.

the secret is to let stuff dry

Once the piece is glued and completely dry, grout it to finish off the piece.

A great non-toxic glass collage and decoupage project, that anyone can do!
