Scissors or Craft knife, Paper towels, Rubbing alcohol, Assorted glass apothecary bottles
- Thoroughly wash glass bottles in warm soapy water, rinse well and towel dry. Moisten paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe each glass to remove excess dirt, grease or remaining soap residue.
- Prepare metallic trims by measuring lengths and cut using scissors or a craft knife.
- Using a soft bristle decoupage brush, apply one even, smooth coat of Gloss Decoupage Finish to the surface.
- Apply a second smooth, even application of decoupage finish to the backside of the metallic trim.
- Apply the metallic trim to the surface positioning finish to finish. Press metallic trim onto the surface, smoothing from the center towards the edges. This will remove trapped air pockets and excess decoupage finish. Wipe away excess finish with damp paper towel.
- Continue adding metallic trim to the surface until the entire decoupage design is achieved.
- Once in place and smooth, allow to dry 2 hours.
- When completely dry, brush a smooth application of decoupage finish over the entire surface being sure to seal all edges of the metallic trim. NOTE: And alternate idea . .. You may wish to only apply decoupage finish over the trims and above ¼”. This will leave the upper portion of the glass bottle free of decoupage finish. If choosing to decoupage using this technique, be sure to seal all edges of the metallic trim. Allow to dry 2 hours.
- Brush a second coat of decoupage finish over the surface and allow to dry 2 hours. NOTE: If decoupage item will serve a purpose other than decorative only, a third top application of decoupage finish may be required.
- Project surface should be cured prior to using. Air dry project for 21 days to cure.
