An introduction to decoupage

Create 3-dimensional pictures by using four or five layers of the same picture.

ScissorsCut the shapes out with fine scissors.

Gently shape each layer before fixing in position. Placing the piece on a soft pad, face down, and moulding it with a rounded implement can do this.

Silicone adhesiveEach layer is separated from the lower one with blobs of silicone glue.

Glue

An alternative method is to use small pieces of double-sided sticky foam pad.

Rose step 2

Print 2.
Cut away all background pieces and, having shaped the image, fix onto base print with silicone glue.

Rose step 3

Print 3.
Separate leaves from flowers and other leaves and place individually to give the effect of one behind the other.
