  • Carefully, cut out the leaf and cover the back of the entire leaf with the clear glue, then attach it to the charger plate. Cover the leaf on top with more glue using a paint brush and let dry.
  • Repeat the process with a few more leaves and then let dry.
  • To protect your charger plate, paint a varnish onto the plate such as Delta Ceramcoat exterior/interior gloss varnish. Let dry.
