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 products. So if you see Decoupage paper, its the same paper as Decopatch paper – you can Decopatch or Decoupage anything you like! The process is the same with whatever paper you’re using.
These papers are made in a special process using micro fibres, they are super thin, flexible but also hard wearing. It’s equally important that you use a glue which contains a varnish, this means you don’t have to varnish any of your items once you’re done, because the glue already does that for you! Extra finishes are also available in Mat, Satin & Gloss along with Food Safe and Exterior/Outdoor more recently.
All you need to decoupage is:
- The object you’re going to cover
- Decopatch glossy glue & varnish (very important to use a glue which contains a varnish)
- Selection of Decopatch or Decoupage papers
