Traditional decoupage has moved on, and this book features all the latest developments in the craft. Packed with imaginative ideas and tricks of the trade, it will provide all you need to know to create attractive and elegant items decoupaged to suit the stylish simplicity of the 21st century. Lavishly illustrated with more than 140 specially commissioned photos, it offers not only clear step by step instructions, but also a superb range of original ideas with each stunning photograph and informative caption becoming a mini project in its own right. Items as diverse as ceramic and porcelain bowls and cups, paper-mache, a duvet cover and a toilet seat have been decoupaged using various new and adapted techniques. These techniques and finishes include napkin decoupage on fabric, wood, glass, porcelain, enamel, and candles, three-dimensional decoupage, decoupage on paper mache and soap, luminaire, and decoupage with natural objects such as pressed flowers and leaves, shells and feathers. There is also an entire section dedicated to recycling with decoupage.

About the author (2004)

Deborah Morbin and Tracy Boomer are among South Africa's foremost craft authors. Their earlier best-selling books ranged from decoupage to scrapbooking and home d?cor. This dynamic duo's various craft classes have been immensely popular owing to their teaching style and elegant ideas (which they bring through into their books). The mosaic projects in Stylish crafts for your home proved so popular that they were persuaded to write a mosaic book with a similar approach. They continue to experiment using techniques across crafts, still following a less-is-more approach in the belief that over-decorating detracts rather than enhances. Deborah and Tracy both live in Knysna on the Garden Route. This is their seventh book.
