Decoupage is, in basic terms, the sticking of a serviette or decoupage paper onto a surface, using Modge Podge in a process called podging. The end result is a product that looks like the picture has been painted or printed onto the surface.
We stock a huge variety of products used for decoupage. We have a range of nearly 200 different designs of local and imported decoupage papers. We have one of the largest ranges of serviettes – almost 400 different types!
|Our wooden blank range is very extensive, as is our glass section for Underglass decoupage.
We stock the full range of Heritage (250ml) and Dala (50 ml) paints, paint brushes, decoupage sponges and rollers.
Decoupage is also very successfully done onto ceramics, tins (yes, your old coffee tins do have a purpose), baskets, corrugated boxes, under glass and can even be incorporated into Scrapbooking.
How do I .. Decoupage?
The item is firstly painted. The serviette or paper is then podged onto the surface, with a few payers of podge, depending on weather a serviette or decoupage paper was used. The product can be lightly sanded between each layer of podge. The item can then be cracked or sealed.
Next to mosaic, this is one of our most popular classes. We normally hold at least one class a week, and it is about 3 hours long. The class fee includes everything except the product to be decoupage – this is extra. The class incorporates the basics of decoupage, from preparing, painting, sticking and podging the serviette, to cracking the product, and finally sealing or varnishing.
Mixed Media Decoupage
This is a new take on the traditional decoupage. It incorporates painting, sponging, quick crack, decoupage of serviette and handmade paper, and then embellishing.
