Decoupage is the traditional art of decorating with colourful scraps and cut-out paper oddments, by applying them to furniture, mirror and picture frames, lampshades, boxes and other surfaces. The images are glued into place and then lacquered with varnish. Focusing on the wide-ranging possibilities of decoupage, this book describes the techniques and features 60 projects, eight of which are described in detail using the step-by-step method. Six sheets of the author's original handpainted designs are included. Belinda Ballantine also wrote "The Decorative Artist" and, with Jocasta Innes, "Paintwise".
