Decoupage has come a long way since its debut decorating Florentine furniture over 300 years ago. We’ll be working under glass which eliminates the need for multiple coats of varnish and gives us the jewel-like depth of colored enamels.
Think decorative plates, paperweights, even brooches. We’ll cover what works, what doesn’t, and why. From tissue paper to glitter and gold leaf, magazine illustrations to your own drawings, decoupage gives wings to your imagination.
All materials are provided, and you may bring any images to use that inspire you.
Maximum class size: 8
