|Bloody Hand Plate|
To make these, I decided to use tinted Mod Podge. I used high gloss Mod Podge and tinted it with Crimson and Saddle Brown Dr. Ph. Martin Watercolor Concentrate. The image above is a "bloody hand print" that was glued directly to the underside of the glass plate. The glass plates were on sale for 99 cents. For the hand print above, I applied the tinted Mod Podge to the underside of the plate and then placed the static cling directly down on the underside of the plate, In other words, the non-sticky side of the static cling was placed on the glass. While the Mod Podge was still wet, I applied a layer of white tissue paper to the underside. Once this layer dried, I reapplied the tinted Mod Podge and another layer of white tissue paper (this give the mottled white color). For the last layer, I applied the tinted Mod Podge and then applied a piece of black tissue paper, which gives the plate the dark color and added depth.

I will continue to experiment and refine the process but my next experiment will deal with the same process using acrylic plates.
