When you design directly with a napkin, champagne will stand, and not lie on its side,as when gluing a small motive. Here it will be useful to designate terms used by the masters of this technique. The motive is called a drawing from a napkin or a decoupage card that will be located on the surface. Soil is an acrylic paint or a mixture of paint with PVA glue, which is applied to the glass with the first and second layer. For decoupage usually use PVA glue, slightly diluted with water.
