    I cut the tissue paper about an inch or 2 larger than the plain printer paper. Then I carefully fold it over and around the edges of the printer paper. Then I tape the edges of the tissue paper to the back of the printer paper making sure there are no

    The ModPodge is fine as a sealer if the pot is indoors or on a covered area. If it is going to be out in the weather, I would add a polyurethane sealer to be safe.

    Yes, I do use an ink jet printer. It bleeds just a very little but when I antiqued the pots you couldn't tell. You could try putting it on with the image face down. Just remember if you do it that way and you have writing on the image, you will need to

    Printer on the fritz, but might look for some paper napkins to try this look. They do pretty good with the Modge Podge, but you have to be very careful not to use too much pressure - the single sheet with the pattern is fragile, but once the first layer

    Luv the idea, but I think I'll cheat a bit, and use paper napkins (since I don't have a color printer) ... and decoupage them on.
