Decoupaged and Distressed Technique with Blackberry House Paint

Have you ever wondered how to take that beautiful, bright, crisp scrapbook paper and make it look “vintage”  so you can use it on your painted projects?

Today, I’m going to tell you the easy way to make that happen. It’s so easy, you’ll be looking for what you can decoupage next!

**TIP from POLLY: Using wax to seal your decoupage product onto your project piece will give it a much smoother, more professional finish than just using decoupage as your sealer. I always do this because it makes the surface SO SMOOTH! The sample in the picture below is 3 years old and gets handled on a regular basis, and it is still as perfect as the day I made it!

Here’s what you’ll need to recreate this look ~

Decoupage It –

Fine Grit Sanding Block –

The Finish (Natural) –  (For added aging, I used our Barely Brown also)

Now, simply follow the instructions below to create this lovely look on your next project!

    Can you use Decoupage It with decoupaging napkins?

      Yes, you can, but you need to be careful. Our product is much more tacky than Mod Podge and therefore doesn’t require near as much to apply paper or napkins. I would only apply it to the surface and not the napkin. Otherwise, you may risk puncturing the napkin.
      I hope this helps.

    I read a blog about this women who painted her travertine backsplash with this paint. After everything dries she used a polycrylic sealer on it. Do you think this paint would be a good choice for me?

    Hi Trish.
    Yes, our paint would be a good choice for any project. Our paint has superior adhesion, and will stick to literally anything. All you need to do is follow our directions and properly prep your surface, and be sure there is no cleaning residue left after cleaning it. Our paint has its own priming chemicals and does not need additional priming. When you paint with our paint, we recommend also using our topcoats since they are developed to work together. Clear Coat Super Shield is an excellent sealer.
    We’d love to see pictures of your finished project!
    Thank you,
