purchase stromectol Tonight I decided to try and attempt Decoupage! Well, I say attempt because I tried decoupage on a polystyrene heart at a craft show, and it was a icky sticky mess.. But I thought I’d give it a second go in the privacy of my own craft room!
All I needed in addition to this was:
– Decoupage papers: I used a sheet from ViviGade’s ‘Skagen’ collection here
– Decoupage glue: I decided to use an all purpose Matt, which worked a treat!
– Brushes: Good quality brushes with long handles! Mine are ‘Nature Line’ I used size 12 for this entire project.
The papers were a dream to work with, they bent around the edges really crisp and made it look professional. Apparently most people use too much glue when they decoupage, so I laid just a thin layer down on the MDF, laid the paper down and then put down another thin layer of glue over the top.
Also, I was really surprised how far the decoupage papers went. I was a bit unsure if I had bought enough paper for the projects I had in mind, but this project didn’t even use an entire sheet! …which is fab because I adore this pattern! I’m getting a Cath Kidston/Laura Ashley feel..
I’m actually really chuffed with the finished piece!
So don’t be scared of decoupage folks! Give it a go!
