When designing your piece using decoupage paper, remember that all true decoupage papers are transparent. A brightly coloured or white background will give a clear, crisp image once the glue has dried. A dark background will dull the image to create a moody or softer look.

We recommend the wet decoupage method over other traditional methods when using our Luxe Decoupage Papers for best results, as follows:

1. When applying your Luxe paper, work in small sections 10cm at a time.

2. Add a thin layer of glue or top coat to your project.

3. Mist the back of your Luxe paper with a spritz of water. This creates suction when the paper is applied and should eliminate most wrinkles.

4. Place the top edge of your Luxe paper on the glued area of the project.

5. Take your blue applicator tool (cheap as chips) or a balled piece of cling film to smooth the Luxe paper over the glued area working from the top down or middle to the outside edge.

6. Move to the next section of the Luxe paper adding another THIN layer of glue or top coat to your project. Spritz with water if needed, then again using our blue applicator tool to smooth the Luxe paper  over the glued area. Repeat until you have adhered the entire Luxe paper to your project

7. Once dry, seal with a clear water based top coat to protect your Luxe paper. You can then paint and blend over the edges.

8. Remember THIN coat of adhesive, spritz with water and smooth with our blue applicator tool. It's as easy as that!
