Decorating light plates. Part three: Clear coat application and dry time.

Drying and clipping to hold the paper in place after coating each plate with Mod Podge. Love this stuff!

I use bull clips to hold the pesky edges down until they dry. Just be sure to remove them carefully, or use some kind of plastic or wax paper in between to keep them from sticking.

Next comes the mod podge. I covered the whole thing, saturating it like paper mache. You may want to do this in steps if you don’t have any clips.
Cover the front and just bend the paper around the sides. Fold one side at a time. Hold each portion until it stays. Do this until all sides are firmly in place. Let all dry.
When dries, coat again with mod podge.




Drying time. This is where I become impatient. Going to watch some Star Trek.
