Glueing & Sticking!!
Decopatch paper is easily applied to any kind of surface (flat or uneven) and is the only paper which produces a smooth texture and a real paint effect. Decopatch paper is deep-dyed and glazed, it will not break apart when glued, and the colours will not fade or run. Because it is a very thin, but strong and flexible paper, decopatch is especially easy to use.
There is NO studio fee for Decopatch you simply choose your item and pay the fully inclusive price which includes a sheet of the Decopatch paper (or 2 half sheets), the glue you will need to complete your item and the Decopatch brushes.
All of the pottery we stock is suitable for painting or decopatch and because the glue dries quickly this is an instant item you can take away on the same day!! We also have a small range of cardboard items for you to decopatch to your hearts content!
We recommend that the minimum age for completing a decopatch item is 8, as it can be quite fiddly & messy!
How’d you do it?!
Cut or tear Decopatch paper into small pieces. Tearing is preferable as torn edges blend together better than edges cut with scissors.
Apply Paperpatch glossy glue to the area where the paper is to be placed.
Place one piece of Decopatch paper on the glued surface.
Apply a new coating of Paperpatch® glue on top the paper. Smooth the surface, working from the centre to the edges.
Cover the object entirely with paper and glue. Each piece should overlap the next. The overlap should be minimal – only enough to cover the edges of the previously glued piece.
