Decoupage

Objectives

  • Students will create art projects.
  • Students will plan the design for a decoupage.
  • Students will learn the old fashioned art technique called decoupage.

Materials

  • Glue
  • Labels, stamps, gift wrap images, old letters, newspapers, or thin cards
  • Mod Podge (glue for decoupage)
  • 1 inch wide paint brush
  • Scissors
  • Dull knife
  • Objects to cover, such as a small box, old hardbound book, canvas

Procedure

  1. Save and collect labels and papers to decorate with. These papers should be thin in texture.

  2. Choose an object that you want to cover. A piece of cardboard, a small box, an old book, or an artist's canvas are good for beginners.

  3. Prepare the papers that you will use to cover by tearing the edges rather than cutting them. This will give an appearance of age.

  4. Paste the images onto the object, overlapping them, and covering the surface of the object. Don't worry if the edges are ragged, have small holes, or tear.

  5. Keep layering and be sure to eliminate all the air bubbles as the paste dries (use a tongue depressor or the flat edge of a dull knife for this).

  6. Let the "decoupage" dry completely.

  7. Brush Mod Podge over the entire area. Repeat several times.
Cover a surface with pasted paper cutouts, creating an old fashioned decoupage.
