Use Glyphicon as Watermark in Container?

I have a Container on one of my pages that looks like this in the modeler: When I view it through the browser, it looks like this: I would like to have the glyphicon appear as a watermark behind the other text in the Container.   Any pointers about how to accomplish this are welcome!

You could try something like this. Add the class 'dashboard-icon-container' to the container, and then add the following CSS to your stylesheet. The glyphicon used by Mendix is already a font, so you can increase its size by using font-size. 

.dashboard-icon-container {
    position: relative;

.dashboard-icon-container .mx-link .glyphicon {
    position: absolute;
    width: 100%;
    text-align: center;
    font-size: 10em;



Get a character from font awesome and play around with opacity and z-order
