DIY Aged French Pitchers
This was not my first time using this technique of painting and distressing on glass, and I’m sure you already know how much I love using this technique on other surfaces too. There are a few things you need to consider when using this technique on glass, but the main steps are basically the same. You can check my other projects here – > DIY painting and distressing.
As for using decals, there are a few things you need to take into consideration here, too! Like using a special cutting technique that will help you adapt the French graphics to the curvy shape of your pitcher!I will be sharing the step by step instructions and everything you need to consider when making these beauties over at the Graphics Fairy, but before leaving you with the link to go to the article, I have some GREAT news!
I have finally found a company on Amazon that sells THE waterslide decal paper I’m using! It’s the exact type of paper I’ve been using for the last (almost) 7 years from Forever, a German company that produces this type of paper in Europe. I have to tell you that I’m more than excited about this, because I know so many of you are having a hard time finding good quality decal paper where you live. This type of decal paper is specially designed for a laserjet printer and I’ve had amazing results with it so far! It’s not the cheapest thing you would ever consider buying, but if you want to try making something beautiful for your home, I highly recommend it! -> click here to buy the best waterslide decal paper!
