Welcome to another tutorial. I saw the idea to pierce a tin can with a nail and thought it would be fun to do with Decoupage. Like most ideas I try from Pinterest it was a partial success but hopefully it will inspire you to try it yourself!
This tutorial was prepared by Liz from http://www.decoupage.ie. Decoupage.ie is the Irish Retailer of Daily Art products and a one stop shop for all things related to decoupage. Liz also runs classes in her home town of Bray and together with Anna , the founder of decoupage.ie, is available to run classes around the country. Get in touch for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Every week we will show how to use one of the products we sell on http://www.decoupage.ie. This week is the turn of Structure Paste. Structure Paste is a fantastic way of adding dimension to your work. It can be used free hand or is very effective when used with a stencil. It can be painted with acrylics when dry or left as it is . Have a look at the tutorial below and then have a go yourself and let me know what you think!
We hope you enjoy this tutorial demonstated by Anna. Any questions just ask either in the comments below or on the facebook page.
I love Decoupage. I love Orange is the new Black too but that would be a whole , other blog post.
Decoupage for me is a way to express my creative side . I can’t draw a straight line and often get frustrated how what I see in my head looks on the page. So discovering decoupage was a revelation, one I would love to share with you!
To me , decoupage is using any paper to decorate a surface, to transform something tired or ugly into something beautiful . The important thing is the finish – the image shouldn’t look ‘stuck on ‘ , there should be no halo of glue. The highest compliment you can get is to be asked if it was hand painted . I have used computer print outs, napkins, tissue paper, wrapping paper, wallpaper and vintage maps . All can give great effect if used on the right project, in the right way.
I hope to use this blog to share my love of decoupage, in all it’s forms. To bring you examples of work I admire and to share tips and techniques for you to use in your work.
I also want to spotlight different products from my page http://www.decoupage.ie to show you how they should be used and give examples of the effects you can achieve.
I’d loved to know what you would like me to cover first . I’d also love to see your work . So get in touch either here or by emailing email@example.com.
