Decoupage Papier-Mache

Decoupage Papier-Mache

This project is one you will find in Delight In The Art of Collage Chapter Four ~ Paper on pages 112 – 115. It is a fun technique that creates awesome results. I was so happy to see CreateMixedMedia.com and North Light Books offer it as a free online tutorial.

The papier-mâché bird on this canvas is actually half of a decorative box. When I found the package of three bird boxes, I saw six birds that I could alter in all kinds of different ways. I decided to decoupage, paint and stamp this one, but I have ideas to cover the others with fabric, mists, modeling paste and glitter. Just because an item is meant for one thing doesn’t mean that’s how you have to use it.

If you want to create your own adorable papier-mache canvas you can view the online tutorial HERE.
