Cut out the desired images from the ‘Tea Moments Brown’ napkin.
Trace the outline of the cut out images onto the ceramic cup using a pencil.
Remove 2 layers of napkin from the cut out image, leaving only the topmost layer with the image.
Apply Super Glue for Decoupage inside the traced outline in Step 2 using a fine round brush.
Stick the topmost layer of the cutout onto the traced outline and use a squeegee to remove all creases. Repeat Steps 2 to 5 until the whole cup is filled with desired images.
Sponge the pasted on images with a moist sponge and dry with a hairdryer.
Apply All Purpose Sealer onto the pasted images only using a small flat brush (2 coats) drying in between each coat with a hairdryer. Leave the cup to cure for 1 week before using or washing.
** When washing the cup please do not scrub or scour hard on the pasted images.
