Glass, Paint, and Paper

One of the best parts of this project is that you could use it to place food on! You can make a custom glass food tray for charcuterie, cookies, and more! Another great aspect to this board is that it shows a lot of dimension and is easy to do!

You can use any combination of stencils, stamps, and papers you want, but here are the items I used for this project. Get creative and blend your paint colors, use different colored embossing power, or even cut decoupage paper to size and decoupage behind the different elements!

  • Use a sturdy glass that will not break easily
  • Clean the glass before working with it
  • Use extra fine embossing powder to reduce heat time
  • Work in a climate controlled area (do not heat cold glass)
  • Hold your stencil or stamp steady when applying watermark ink to glass. If it smears wipe clean and start over
  • Reuse your excess embossing powder. Have paper under your project to collect it.
  • Wait for embossing to cool before beginning next element
  • Emboss one element at a time for best results.
  • Mask off previously embossed areas
  • Emboss “front” element first, working your way “back”
  • Paint over the entire embossed element on the back. No need to stay within the detail lines
  • Protect the back with sealer and additional paper, paint, or protective layer
  • Try adding feet, sides, or handles for a more ornate tray!
