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 ~

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.
