All New Decoupage
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.
