Most people buy a product called "Mod Podge" (sold at craft stores) & follow the directions on the container it comes in, but the cheapest way is to use a white glue (like Elmer's) & thin it 50-50 with water & glue then use this as your decoupage medium.


Simply cut or tear out your paper (pictures or text) then apply the medium (glue or mod-podge) to the article being decoupaged using a paint brush, next apply the paper or fabric artwork to the wet area then apply another coat to the top of the artwork & let dry. Most people apply 3 or 4 more coats to the top to seal it. Mod Podge comes in Gloss. semi-gloss or Matte, whereas White Glue is kind of a semi-gloss. Have fun!
