Hi everyone, on my new blog, I will be demoing and answering questions about decoupage, including paper napkins and prints of my own designs. I will also be posting photos and video of my decoupage projects in progress. Please check in and say hi, share links, let me know how I am doing.
Here’s a photo of one of my recent decoupage projects, a candle holder decoupaged with a rose napkin.

Um maggy from Egypt. .I found yr blog while I was searching on line to find a place in Egypt that selling the decopage’s accessories…I surfed yr blog & I fell in love with yr pieces of art..actually um a brand new in DIY & crafting fields. .i’be stated with making crepe flowers, but accidentally I watched a decopage vedio on YouTube. .I loved this art so much…but unfortunately it’s not a common art in my country…so um trying to find a place that I can get all the related items. ..can you help me with that…or recommending a site to buy from….I liked yr napkins so much, but what about the other items ?
Wating to hear from you soon
Thank you spook much
Decoupage is very old technique, but today I like to just simply explain to you .
1. Scissors, paper knife for cutting images
2. Cutting board
3. Clear glue: Elmer’s glue, Mod Podge all or others clear seal glue.
4. Acrylic paint OR Wood paint or indoor paint, furniture( it’s very comment in Egypt)
last one about images
*Any images you can use it accept inkjet print,(inkjet color is easy mess melt or fade out)
*if you use napkins you need give a light or white background and only use first layer of napkin.
about other art media effect I will try to show you in video.
not sure its help you. but very thank you leave me the comment.
Unfortunately i’ve just seen yr reply !!!!!
To be honest; I wouldn’t expect that you gonna reply….but while I surfing yr blog right now trying to revised yr vedio on wooden tray decopage, I found yr reply….very happy to read it & of course yr blog helped me a lot with this great art…..I made a lot of gifts for my sisters & friends…they liked them so much
BTW, I asked my sister who leaves in Boston to get me yr napkins while she came back in Ramadan, so I shared yr blog with her
Thank you so much for reply & thank you for being the main reason of practicing this elegant kind of art
My warmth regards from Egypt
It’s my pleasure!
In your intro to your blog, you misspelled the word demoing which should say demonstrating instead. Was probably a fluke of typing, just thought I would let you know. Bye for now.
