This is by far my favourite tray I decoupaged. I didn’t do many though, the number of things I laid my hands on with an intention to alter the way they look is quite modest. But as I say, I do like this one a lot. I made sure it can be used for it was made for – a cup of hot tea will do no harm to its shiny surface. The job as done with glossy varnish (by Maimeri), the best varnish there is. I let the couple of coats to cure for more than a week; the Maimeri varnish hardens enough for the surface to be scratch, moist, heat resistant.
Obviously, you don’t want to stick it into the fire or immerse in water for hours 🙂
