For those of us not in the know, what is the "napkin technique"?
Wunderbar! I loooove what you did to the mirrors, Kathrin! You really gave perks to otherwise ordinary mirrors. I'd do the same to my mirror. :)Jules, keep up the great work!
I think what they mean by "napkin technique" is decoupage.

Beautiful work!What I understand the "napkin technique" to be is somewhat like decoupage.Apply Elmer's glue to your surface, allow to dry. Take the top most layer of a napkin design you've cut out and put in place. With a wet (water) larger soft brush, "paint" the water on until napkin is smooth. Again, allow to dry then put on a clear top coat such as Deco Art Clear Top (or something like that).That's what I would do... Kathrin's technique may be different. ~Laura
HiWell, the napkin technique is very easy!!!I use the Art Potch from Hobby Line. Art Potch for napkin technique is a water based, weatherproof lacquer and glue in one. You remove the uppermost layer of a napkin of of a piece of a napkin you’ve cut out and you place it on the base object (mirror or anything else). Then you apply the Art Potchon top of it, with a small sponge or a soft brush and then you let it dry… ready!!!!There are different Art Potch lacquer and glue, depending on what surface you want to place the napkin. Terracotta, wood, ceramics, stone, glass, candle, fabrics, textiles and whatever you can imagine!!! Just try itKathrin
That's funny - My Name is Kathrin too - and I did this in 2004 for Christmas-presents. There must be pics of some of them somewhere on my neglected homepage... - yes, here: http://kathrin.konjareck.de/bastelgalerie/I also did a corresponding PAVO for one. For Potch I use something much cheeper: wood glue deluted with water (about 50:50, depends on the glue). Takes a little more time to dry, but on surfaces like wood or paper it's perfect :) (doesn't work with ceramics or candles of course).Greetings from GermanyKathrin
