How to Decoupage

Furniture with Bubblegum Yum Print

PREPARE YOUR SURFACE:  You can decoupage on pretty much any surface. We do recommend that you ensure any surface that is slick or has oil be cleaned with a degreaser. 

PAINT SURFACE:  Paint the surface with chalk or acrylic paint.

APPLY BGY ARTISAN PAPER:  We recommend using a water based polyacrylic or mod lodge medium when applying our paper. Work in small sections with a thin layer of medium. Before moving onto the next section be sure to work out any wrinkles or bubbles in the paper. For the best results use a brayer or card to help remove any wrinkles or bubbles.

SAND:  For a flawless look we recommend that you sand down the edges of the paper with a 220 grit sand paper.

FINISHING TOUCHES:  You items such as furniture, you can continue blending the paint with the paper. Once finished seal with the poly acrylic. For other items, seal with the poly acrylic. Keep in mind that the paper will bubble when the poly acrylic is reapplied. Once dry the bubbles will dissipate.
