Karla one of our Raggedy Bits Creatives made this beautiful set of Houses using our Roses are Red Decoupage Paper

Step 1 – Base coat your furniture piece or craft project in a coordinating colour. Using white as a background colour will make the decoupage paper design pop out more. Using a dark colour will mute the decoupage paper slightly. For example for the Bingo Houses I base coated them in Fusion – Cathedral Taupe because the tones in the paper go well with that colour. 

Decoupage Time

There a several ways to apply decoupage paper. 

Heat Method:

Step 1 – Apply a coat of either Tough Coat, Clear Coat, Decoupage & Transfer Gel or Mod Podge (whichever you like to use as a decoupage medium). Let dry.

Step 2 – Apply your Raggedy Bits Decoupage paper to what you’re working on. 

Step 3 – Place your baking paper over the decoupage paper and press using a hot steamless iron, starting in the center and moving out towards the edge of the design. The heat from the iron heats up the medium that you have used and adheres to the decoupage paper. This method also helps remove any crinkles you may get. 

Step 4 – Seal.

Cling Wrap Method:

Step 1 – After painting your piece. Apply your decoupage medium and while it is still wet, apply your decoupage paper. We have found working in smaller sections at a time alleviates crinkles.

Step 2 – Then using some scrunched-up cling wrap, burnish over the top of your decoupage paper to remove any wrinkles. Let dry.

Step 3 –  Seal in all your hard work. 

If you have any crinkles you can use a fine grit sandpaper for example 220 grit and lightly sand and then apply another coat of tough coat or top coat. This method gives a more aged authentic look.
