DECOUPAGE on Sunday, 2/4!
Take cut and paste to a whole new level…learn decoupage, the art of decorating a surface with shapes or pictures and then coating it with varnish or lacquer. Dari Litchman, handbag designer extraordinaire of Papi's Mami fame, will guide you down the same path that victorians and hippies took in days gone by. Raw wood picture frames will be provided, you just bring your sweet self, along with color copies of family photos, magazine cutouts, rhinestones, foreign language newspapers, old maps, old books you don’t mind cutting up, decorative papers, glitter, bits n pieces, whatever tickles your fancy! Even dimensional puffy paints are great for decoupage, and permanent markers in fun colors, stuff like that.
If you would like to decoupage something else, bring it along. Examples might be a hat box, light switch cover, plaque, photo/storage box, wooden stool, etc. We just ask that if you bring something with you, please make sure you have already prepped it by lightly sanding and painting it. We’ll supply the basic materials, you bring the dream.
$40 including materials fee: Sunday, 2/4, 2-5pm
