What Is Decoupage
Decoupage was first used in the 17th century France. Paper cutouts in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf, and other decorative elements is the art of decoupage.
Gluing colored paper onto furniture, boxes. Each layer is sealed with varnishes, often multiple coasts. The traditional technique require anywhere from 30 to 40 coats.
Nowadays using glue is a easy way to decoupage paper on surfaces.

How To Decoupage Easter Eggs
Pick a shape to cut out.
- There are many way to decoupage Easter eggs. You can start by completely covering the entire foam egg, or you can pick a spot on the egg. I choose to decoupage a specific spot on the egg. I decided on an oval shape surrounded by the white of the egg. For example I used three different napkin designs creating three unique looks. I cut out a specific shape from each napkin. Take off the second layer of the napkin off so the napkin is thin. This makes it easier to glue on.
Painting the eggs.
2. With a foam brush or artist brush paint the foam with white acrylic. Painting the foam eggs gives a flawless appearance.
3. Add the Modpodge on a portion on the foam egg. That is where you will glue the cut out image. Press the cut out napkin carefully on the glue tapping with your fingers carefully.
4. After the first coat dries apply another coat to the napkin design for added protection.
What Is The Best Glue To Use.
To decoupage Easter eggs there are many types of glues to use. Modpodge is the most popular, and is available in a wide variety of mixtures from matte, gloss, shiny and glittery. Elmer’s School Glue is another option that works pretty well if that is all your have. DecoArt Americana Decoupage have a matte and gloss formula. If you want a shiny image use a gloss formula. If you rather not have a shiny look use the matte finished.
