Step by step
Apply the base
Apply the water-based primer with the flat brush on the object.
Allow to dry and apply a second coat of primer.
Spread a coat of acrylic paint over the dry mortar.
Cut out the paper
Cut out the chosen subjects with scissors or a classic paper cutter.
If it were rice paper, wet the paper with a thin brush, following the contours of the design and tear the subject following the wet contours.
Paste the subjects
If the subject is heavy paper, we recommend a thin layer of glue under the paper.
Rice paper: if the subject is in light paper, it can be glued directly onto the previously glued object.
Classic paper: it needs to be wet before applying the glue.
Begin to glue the subjects and once dry, apply a coat of protective varnish.
On this box we used the decoupage technique, the stencil with relief mortar and the shabby technique.
