  1. Paper-cut Plates - 1. Wash and dry plates thoroughly to ensure they are free of grease. Prop up inside an old cardboard box and spray from side to side with your chosen colours of Painter’s Touch paint. Allow the paint to dry for ten minutes, rotate the plate 90° and respray to ensure good coverage.

    2. While the plate is drying, trace a silhouette design onto the back of a sheet of patterned paper using carbon paper. Cut any internal areas out with a sharp craft knife before trimming the outline of the silhouette with sharp scissors.

    3. Use a slim paintbrush to coat the back of the silhouette with PVA glue, working quickly so that the glue is still wet. Fix the paper silhouette to the centre of the plate and press down over the whole design with a clean, dry sponge to remove any air bubbles and soak up any excess glue.

    4. Allow the glue to dry completely before placing the plate back inside the cardboard box and sealing with two light coats of Crystal Clear spray.
