New to Decoupage
Hey everybody how are you? I honestly never even heard of decoupage until yesterday. We're remodeling and making a new room for my 2yo daughter. She chose her theme as Tinkerbell. I have paint colors and a border ready. Then I realized yesterday that the light switch covers and the outlet covers would look strange and need to be Tinkerbell related. I searched online and noticed everything on ebay, etc that I found were decoupaged by the seller. Not to mention none of them were what I really wanted.
I saw on a site that they used regular white glue to do it. Using the glue to attach the materials and then they made a wash with it to put on top as well. I can't find the site now, and am wondering how to do the top coat with the white glue. I thought that the site said to just use glue and water but I'm unsure of the combination. Also, will construction paper be too thick? I found the perfect color purple scrapbooking paper, and some glittery green that I planned on using as a border. I also have some Tinkerbell stickers to use.
Any tips on how to make this work? How about for the top coat to protect the paper?
Thanks in advance!
