How to Decoupage

In a few simple steps, use decoupage paper on a mache base to create a perosonalised decoration for your home.

Step 1

Tear up your chosen decoupage papers into ½ inch pieces. It is best to tear instead of cut with scissors as it creates a softer line and therefore a more blended finished piece.

Step 2

Use the Decopatch glue with the Decopatch brushes to paint a layer of glue onto the mache base. Then place down a piece of prepared decoupage paper and add another layer of Decopatch glue over the top.
