Cutting-Edge Decoupage: 30 Easy Projects for Super-Cool Results
Découpage has always been one of the easiest, most effective ways to transform old, worn, or simply uninspired objects into one-of-a-kind masterpieces. And this cool, graphic guide gives the craft a fresh twist! Colorful and unabashedly contemporary, with innovative techniques and unexpected materials, these 30 projects end the découpage doldrums. Every design delivers sophisticated results on such unusual surfaces as a discarded window and the blades of a table fan, and the unique embellishments include illustrations downloaded from the Internet; color photocopies of fabrics; and designs bleached into colored vellum. Retro fashion clippings transform a vintage hatbox into spectacular luggage fit for the most discriminating traveler. Ordinary children’s chairs become punchy polka-dotted showpieces with a touch of paint and découpaged circles. Every effect is fantastic.
