What is the Decoupage?

Decoupage is a technique applied to wood, glass, cans, etc. The technique consists of decorating a surface by gluing images of napkins, prints on paper or even cloth. For this a type of glue or special varnishes is used. (I have seen that many people use white glue or some special product, for example, the product Mod Poge).

Well, without further delay, I show you this recipe that, although it seems easy to make, has its secret ingredients. These ingredients are the patience and love to this DIY. Let’s go to try it!

Materials

These are the materials you need to do decoupage with stones.

  • Stones

Step by Step

Before starting, prepare the table or the surface by placing newspapers or plastic, wear clothes that do not mind getting dirty and ready! Now, you are ready to begin!

Cut out the napkin drawings

Cut or tear with your fingers around the drawing very carefully, if you tear it, the paper will be more integrated into the stone, if you find it difficult, you can cut it with scissors.

Choose and wash the stones

Once you have the stones that fit the drawing of the napkin you want to paste, the next step is to wash them well with a brush, water and soap.

Apply 2 or 3 layers of white acrylic paint to each stone, remember to let it dry very well between each applied hand.

Separate layers from the napkin

Normally napkins bring 3 layers of paper, you only need the drawing, the rest we discard.

Prepare the glue

If you choose the glue, the best option is the white carpenter glue. Make a mixture of 1 part of glue and 2 of water.

Once the white paint is completely dry, apply a thin layer of glue on the stone. Next, place the cut napkin only in the center of the drawing. Then apply glue with the flat brush, which extends from the center to the ends (this way you will avoid that the compress forms wrinkles) without soaking the brush too much so that the paper does not break.

Apply varnish

Once the decoupage craft is well dried with stones, protect with an varnish that does not damage the paper. In our tips section, you can find several types of varnish you can find in the market. We have used the Decopatch Vitrifier as it is suitable for this craft, besides being able to use it to make other crafts with kids for its water base and not be toxic.
