HOW TO DO PAPER DECOUPAGE

Step 1

Give the article to be covered, a coat of glossy or flat-finish enamel. Allow it to dry.


Step 2

Cut out pictures, or parts of pictures, from magazine pages printed on heavy paper. (Thin paper will show the printing on the reverse side).

Step 3

Arrange the cut-outs on the surface of the article. Shift pictures around until you arrive at the most effective arrangement.

Step 4

Remove a single cut-out, and spread a thin layer of glue on the back of it. Put the cut-out back into position and press down firmly and evenly, using edge of playing card to smooth out wrinkles. Carefully remove excess glue with a damp cloth.

Step 5

Do each cut-out in the same manner, until entire surface is covered.

Step 6

Allow glue to dry for several hours. Then give entire article a coat of clear, waterproof varnish in glossy, semi-gloss or dull finish.
