Instructions

  1. Paint the plate in Golden Ochre and let dry. Apply a second coat of Pure Gold and let dry.
  2. Print the downloadable art page of the large geode slice.
  3. Trim and place in the center of the painted and dried plate. Trace around the geode shape approximately ½" to ¾" from the image edge with a pencil. Remove image and set aside.
  4. Paint inside the pencil line with Pure Black and let dry.
  5. Lay the geode image face-down on your craft mat.
  6. Apply a coat of Gloss to the face-down image. Apply a coat of Mod Podge Gloss to the plate surface.
  7. Place the geode image in the center of the plate. Note: You will be laying a glue piece to another glue piece. Squeegee in place.
  8. For a realistic touch, apply Mod Podge Sparkle to the center of the geode slice as well as any white areas. Also, add Sparkle over the black edge. Set aside to dry.
  9. Top-coat the entire piece with Gloss. Let dry.
    • NOTE: Food should not be placed directly on this finished surface. We recommend adding a clear glass plate.
