We have the taste of decopatchen, what is it fun to do! Paper tearing and sticking, it is relaxing and also suitable for children. You don't have to be very precise, because when it's dried, you don't see the tear lines at all.
With a (ready-made) papier-mache shape, beautiful paper and napkin glue you can make your own decoration. This time we chose to decorate a cat with the decoupage technique. After all, we are fanatical cat lovers, so this cute pussy gets a nice place in the living room or in the hallway cabinet.
You want to know how we made it? Of course, we made some step-by-step pictures of it, you can see it below. Is there something not clear or do you want to ask something? Then you can always send a message, you know!
And are you curious, which papier-mâché shapes are all available? There are ecoshape dinosaurs, dogs, unicorns, squirrels, polar bears, wolves, giraffes, elephants etc. You can also find all kinds of nice Décopatch paper, glitters, ribbons, wooden and MDF figures and much more!
Lay out some Décopatch paper, the glue/lacquer, white paint, brush and glitters and eye and eyelash stickers. And some nice polletjesband (not in the picture)
With a white background, the colours of the thin napkin paper are even more beautiful. So pre-dyeing white is recommended, but it is not necessarily necessary.
Tear or cut small pieces of paper and stick them, overlapping each other. Then you go over with the same glue again, because the glue is also varnish/lacquer!
So finish the whole figure.
We have covered the ears and tail with a different pattern paper. The whole is then painted one more time.
Finally, apply some decoration with nice glitter confetti.
Decoupage (the napkin technique) can be done in many different ways, with all kinds of materials on various objects. It can be on wood, MDF, glass, cardboard, papier-mache, terracotta, etc.
