Decoupaging Made Easy

Happy Sunday from a hot Arizona!

Decoupage is probably one of the most satisfyingly easy mixed media techniques. 

We want to share some video with you that highlight the ease and beautiful results with simple tissue paper and clear coat.   Then by adding "icing to the cake" you can stain the same project for fantastic aged results.



Tracy from Refurbished in the Middle shows us how she works with tissue, Satin Clear Coat and the new VooDoo Gel Stain for aged effects.  


Let's step it up and really age that simple project.    Use this technique on furniture, canvases, books and whatever you can make fabuuulous!



Consider this technique using our Vintage Books, WOW! OR Create a gift using our wooden angels.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
