decoupage napkins tutorial
Decoupage is a French word which means “cut out”, while in English usage decoupage is a method of surface decoration…
Paper napkins are an ideal medium for decoupage, normally you want to use only one layer of the paper napkin (which usually have 3 layers or “plys”) for decoupage. one layer is very thin , light and transparent, therefore it is easier work with on your surface material.
The keys to successful napkin decoupage are :
- Choose a napkin with a light background such as white, gray or kind light base for the best performance.
- Use your hand or a wet brush to tear out the image, and try to make image outline blend with object surface with no sharp outline.
- Don’t make the brush too wet, as you can easily tear the napkin.
- Paper decoupage Napkins
- Birds print on paper
- Wood tray
- Acrylic paint apple green and white
- Mod Podge
- First I selected one of decoupage Napkin.
- Print out some vintage birds images
- Get wood tray and sand it slightly
- Bush on apple green acrylic color then let’s dry few hours, then brush white acrylic color on the top, when it dry sand it again, make first layer apple green come out some.
- Tear out decoupage napkin the images you will use.(only top image layer)
- Brush very light mod podge on wood tray then put your napkin careful down. use dry hands push napkin very light for no wrinkle.
- Brush more mod podge on top the napkin. then let’s dry.
- Cut out birds image, apply mod podge on the tray then press down birds image the brush mod podge on top of image one more time. then let’s dry.
- Apply one more layer mod podge for good seal after first layer dried.
