Our top tips for our Luxe Decoupage Paper 40g/sqm
When designing your piece with decoupage paper, remember that all true decoupage paper is transparent. A light or white background gives a clear, sharp image once the glue has dried. A dark background will matte the image to create a moody or softer look.
We recommend the wet decoupage method over other traditional methods when using our Luxe Decoupage papers for best results, as follows:
When you start applying your Luxe Decoupage Paper, work in 10cm sections at a time.
Add a THIN coat of glue or top coat to your project.
Spray the back of your Luxe Decoupage paper with a squirt of water. This will create suction as the paper is applied and should eliminate most wrinkles.
Place the top edge of your luxe decoupage paper on the glued area of the project.
Take your blue applicator tool (an invaluable tool) to smooth the Luxe Decoupage Paper across the glued area from top to bottom or center to outer edge.
Move to the next section of Luxe Decoupage Paper and add another THIN coat of glue or top coat to your project, spritzing with water if necessary and then again using our blue applicator tool to smooth the Luxe Decoupage Paper top to bottom to sweep over the glued area or the center to the outer edge. Repeat until you have glued all of the Luxe Decoupage paper to your project.
Once dry, seal with a clear water-based top coat to protect your Luxe Decoupage Paper. You can then use the edges of the Paint over and blend Luxe Decoupage Papers to soften them.
Caution! LIGHT coat of glue, spray with water and smooth with our blue applicator. It's that easy!
DON'T FORGET YOUR BLUE APPLICATOR TOOL! IT IS PRICELESS!
Always with a water based Seal top coat!
