Hi, 

Decoupage starts with a plain and clean surface, Modge Podge and the pictures which we will like to use. Start with visualising the finished product and place the picture as per the plan. Glue them to the surface using Modge Podge. Ensure there is no air vacuum while sticking the pictures. Once dry apply Modge Podge on the picture to varnish it. This process can be repeated twice but the coat has to dry in between.

Hello Sunitha, For any decoupage art take the cutouts of the required design & paste it on any base using fabric glue.than decorate the outline with liquid embroidery pearl colors or glitters as per ur requirements,so that the design cutout will be covered & not at all visible like a greeting card or a calendar or a fabric cutout.

You get glass pencil markers in any hardware stores. you may get them in White or yellow colour Our regular CD marker pens can also be used on glass The best way is to TRACE the design on the glass using white, yellow or any other coloured carbon paper as per your requirement.

Oh ok, will try. Thanks a lot.

Do not use any pen on glass ,your pen can get damage also . instead of using pen u can draw one stencil on rough paper and place behind the glass so that the stencil did not move and with the glass liner draw your design
