Many years ago, when I was a child, my happy place was my grandmother’s house. It was a place where I felt completely loved and accepted. No matter what I wanted to do, it was okay with her. In the bedroom I used at her house there was a decoupage plaque, a woodland scene with 3-D elements. I decided then that I would learn to do that myself one day. This kit will teach you a skill that has been used to create objects of art, from furniture to objects to hangings, for over a thousand years!
The Decoupage Crate Contains:
Projects – We’ve included several project surfaces for you to base your creations on: a pencil box, a small chest, and a round box.
Decoupage Papers – You have a curated variety of decorative papers in various styles. We’ve chosen a travel theme for this crate, so your decoupage paper is heavy on maps. Maps make particularly attractive decoupage!
Ephemera – This set of reproduction ephemera, or interesting memorabilia like tickets or programs, allows you to add a three-dimensional aspect to your projects.
Craft Knife – Cut the paper to fit using this sharp knife, but protect the surface under it, first, with a cutting board, thick stack of papers, or your crate.
Ruler and Pencil – Measure twice and cut once, we’ve always heard. Use this to measure the paper you’ll need to cover your projects and as a straight edge to mark your cutting lines.
Gloss Decoupage Medium – You’ll use this to adhere the paper to your project and to provide a finish on top. Non-toxic. Water-based. Permanent.
White Glue – You can make a decoupage medium of your own using this! Non-toxic. Water-based. Permanent.
Cup – To make your own decoupage medium in.
Craft Stick and Spoon – To measure and mix your own decoupage medium in.
Sponge brushes – Use these to apply media to your project and to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles.
