Decoupage beginner's kit- Carole Day.jpg

Carole was given a Decoupage beginner's kit for Christmas - something she had never previously tried.

 

In Carole's words "After practising on the kit's pieces, I decided to decorate a terracotta flower pot and attach a copy of the stages I went through.

 

First I painted the pot.  I cut out my chosen Hydrangeas from serviettes I bought and then glued them to the pot.

 

Finally, I coated in a clear varnish.

 

( Unfortunately the tin did not work - too many ridges !)

 

I wonder if any other members have tried this art form"?
