faqs
What types of surfaces can I apply any of the Martha Stewart Crafts ® Decoupage Papers such as the Cut Outs, Paper Doilies, and/or rolled papers to?
Martha Stewart decoupage papers can be applied to most surfaces such as: wood, canvas, tin/metal, terra cotta, glass/ceramics and paper mache.
If paper is applied to fabric, your project should only be used decoratively.
When crafting with the Paper Cut-Outs can I trim the paper closer to the design image?
Martha Stewart decoupage papers can be applied to most surfaces such as: wood, canvas, tin/metal, terra cotta, glass/ceramics and paper mache.
If paper is applied to fabric, your project should only be used decoratively.
What is the best way to decoupage paper cut-outs to my projects?
First, prepare your project surface. Then using the Martha Stewart Crafts Soft Bristle Decoupage Brushes, apply one even, smooth coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish of your choice to the surface.
Apply one smooth, even application of the Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish to the side of the paper you want to adhere. Place the wet decoupage paper to the wet decoupage surface. Use the Martha Stewart Crafts Brayer to press the paper onto the surface, smoothing from the center towards the edges of the paper to remove air bubbles and excess decoupage finish. Wipe away any excess finish with a damp paper towel. Once in place and smooth, allow to dry 2 hours. When completely dry, brush a smooth application of the Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish over the paper, leaving at least a ¼-inch border to seal edges of the paper. Allow to dry 2 hours and repeat. If decoupaged item will serve a purpose other than decorative, a third top application may be required. Your project should completely cure by air drying for 21 days before using outdoors, placing on top shelf of dishwasher, or washing by hand.
How can I decoupage clear plates to be food safe?
This is called decoupaging in reverse. To decoupage in reverse, please refer to 33302 Botanical Birds. To create the look of these plates, simply apply the Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish of your choice to the backside of the glass plate after it is properly prepared.
Then apply the Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish of your choice to the front side of the bird paper cut-out and apply the image to the backside of the plate. Continue with the standard decoupage procedure applying the Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish of your choice and allowing proper drying times between applications. Complete the look of the reverse decoupage by painting an opaque application of paint over the entire backside of the plate. Allow to cure for 21 days prior to use.
What other helpful hints are there when decoupaging fabrics?
When working with dimensional or textured fabrics such as the Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Lace Trims, it may be helpful to press and hold the lace trim in place a few additional minutes because of the nature of the thicker textiles.
You can also saturate the thicker materials in Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Finish for a couple of minutes before using. This helps to improve the application of adhesion when working with thicker fabrics.
