How To Decopatch / Decoupage
What’s the difference between Decopatch & Decoupage?
Lots of people get muddled up with decopatch and decoupage- but don’t worry- essentially they are the same thing- ‘Decoupage’ is the process of sticking and covering an item, where as ‘decopatch’ is a brand of decoupage paper and items, so if you see decoupage paper, its the same paper as decopatch paper- so you can decopatch or decoupage anything you like! The process is the same with whatever paper your using-
It is important though that you do use the specially made Decoupaging paper, nothing works anywhere like this paper, its super thin, flexible but also hard wearing, and its important you use a glue which contains a varnish, this means you dont have to varnish any of your items once your done, because the glue already does that for you!
All you need to decoupage is:
- the object you’re going to cover,
- Decopatch paperpatch glossy glue & varnish (very important to use a glue which contains a varnish)
- Selection of decopatch or decoupage papers.
- A Brush
