I’m back on the blog after a long break with a new tutorial! Wanted to try out something different with the supplies available at the store. So, I tried using feathers for decoupage and it turned out pretty good just as I’d visualized! This is what a plain wooden box turned into!
If you’d like to try it out, please follow my tutorial….
Step 1: First unscrew all the hinges and latches of a box and save them carefully.
Step 2: Paint the bottom part of the box (interior) and the lid (interior & exterior) with Acrylic paints and let it dry.
Step 3: Coat the exterior of the bottom part of the box generously with Decoupage glue.
Step 4: Stick burlap on the glue and leave it to dry. Once dry, snip off the extra.
Step 5: On the lid, place feathers and stick it with decoupage glue. Use a generous amount of glue and make sure the feathers are adhered to the lid properly. This takes a while to dry. It’s best to let it dry overnight.
Step 6: When it’s totally dry, trim the edges with a pair of sharp scissors.
Step 7: Mix Resin and Hardener (follow the proportions mentioned on the label) in a disposable cup with a craft stick. Make sure you stir the mixture well enough.
Step 8: Pour the Resin mixture on the lid and even it out with the craft stick ; getting rid of all big bubbles. Let it dry well enough.
Step 9: Stick some metal embellishments or flowers with hot glue and let them dry.
Hope you like it! Thanks for going through my post! 🙂
