  • Decoupage

    Decoupage is a popular craft technique used to bring tired objects back to life - and you only need a few supplies to get going! We stock a great selection of decoupage sheets, foam and glue from established brands like docrafts, Mod Podge and Hunkydory.

WHAT IS DECOUPAGE?

The word decoupage derives from the French word 'decouper' which means 'to cut out,' and decoupage is just that - cutting out paper to decorate objects. What's special about decoupage is that gives the impression of a painted design when realistically, it's a series of glued down paper cut-outs. Although this craft technique appears current, it actually has a long history, thought to have begun as tomb art in East Siberia before moving over to China. As the 12th century went underway, decoupage was widely used to decorate lanterns and boxes. Mary Delany achieved recognition as a distinguished decoupeur in the 18th century, creating botanically-inspired artwork for ladies of the court, and since then decoupage has only evolved further - but what can you expect?

WHAT DO I NEED FOR DECOUPAGE?

You can pretty much decoupage any object using common household materials, however for truly spectacular results there are specialist decoupage supplies available. Before deciding upon your materials, you should consider what you'd like to decoupage. Whether an object's made of wood, card, paper, plastic, ceramic or metal, it can all be decoupaged! A recent craze has seen decoupage used to upcycle old, worn furniture, turning it into a fresh, modern statement piece - but how can you achieve this? To start out in decoupage, you simply require covering material (e.g. decoupage sheets, magazine pages, wrapping paper, postcards or tissue paper), scissors, decoupage glue, a paintbrush or sponge, a brayer and a cloth to wipe away excess glue.
