Hello Everyone…
Arpita here, hope you all are staying home and staying safe. In this lockdown time, here is a decoupage tutorial step by step for you all. I had this old Chipboard box which was great to store my trinket’s. So upcycled and gave it a new lease of life. Have Decoupage’d the box creating a faux palette wood background.

Have a decoupage tutorial step by step for you all –

Step 1

Have painted the complete outside of the box with Butter Cream Chalky Paint. Have given 2 coats of the paint.

Step 3

At this stage felt the yellow was overpowering. So applied one thin coat of Snow white Chalky Paint.

Using the shades of pink and brown I added color using the dry brush technique.

Dry Brush technique – load your brush with paint and take of the excess paint from the brush and with a light hand paint the surface.

Next I drew lines to create a faux palette wood.
