HOW TO MAKE YOUR CREATION:
Cut out your motifs and images as accurately as possible from gift wrap or magazines. Unless the item you are decorating has a pleasing surface color and texture, you’ll need to cut out enough images to cover the whole surface of your object, allowing space for the images to overlap slightly.
Position the cut-out images on your object in the design of your choice. Feel free to play with different options and positions until you find the design you like most.
Remove the cut-outs from the object, remembering the layout of your choice. Spray adhesive over the entire surface of the object.
Place the cut-out images onto the surface of the object. If you like the item’s surface, position the cut-outs with some overlapping and others with spaces between them. If you want to cover the whole surface, feel free to do so.
If you’d like an antique finish to your creation, you can tint your varnish with a little raw umber paint for added effect.
Apply a coat of gloss varnish and allow to dry.
Apply a coat of flat varnish and allow to dry.
