C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 297 – 5th of February – Technique Challenge: Decoupage


I do not do very much decoupaging because I always have issues with the papers bubbling. Previously I used Modge Podge, but this time I used Rangers Matte Medium, I also used 80lb card stock. I got an unfinished pine box at a craft table during my G-son’s Christmas Party and wanted to make a box to hold special cards I get from friends and family. I started by painting the box with white acrylic paint. Next I used matte medium to adhere the die cuts, then painted another white coat of paint over it. I think I will add a couple coats of clear coat so it will be easier to clean later on.
