Tear your chosen paper into random pieces
making sure to remove the machine cut edges.
You should now have a selection of thumbnail
sized pieces all with feathered torn edges. this
ensures when you glue the pieces you will achieve
an apparently seamless coverage.
How to Décopatch…
1.) It is advisable to first, seal the surface of your item with primer.
2.) Tear your selected paper(s) into random postage stamp size pieces, for very small items, make the pieces even smaller.
3.) Now start covering by painting an area slightly larger than your paper pieces with glue.
4.) Place one piece of paper onto the glued surface and immediately brush over it with glue, ensuring the paper blends into any contours without air bubbles. The paper should be completely covered top and bottom.
5.) Continue with the next piece of paper following the same steps, blend and overlap the paper to it’s neighbours. Continue this process until the whole item is covered.
After 10minutes the varnish will be touch dry and you can add artistic effects with patch liners and gems. Wash your brushes immediately with warm soapy water to use again
