Can any paper be used for decoupage?
You can use pretty much any kind of paper, that you want. You can use Magazine Paper, Newspaper, Wrapping paper, Wallpaper, Paper Napkins, playing cards, crafting paper and even fabric. As long, as the Decoupage glue, that you are using, can glue it to the surface of your project, then you can use it for Decoupage.
Can you make your own decoupage?
Use craft stick to mix together three parts Elmer’s® Glue-All® with 1 part water in a paper cup. Stir well. Use sponge brush to spread mixture over surface. Papers may stretch or bubble up initially, so smooth out air from bubbles with finger and then go over area again with foam brush.
Can you decoupage with photos?
Decoupage allows you to display your favorite photographs in a creative way. Cover a wooden cube with photos, cut them out to decorate a picture frame, or glue them onto the outside of a paper or wood box. You can decoupage photographs onto any smooth surface that glue adheres to.
