Decoupage bug has bitten me. I have completed many decoupage projects. I had learnt decoupage few years ago. My first decoupage was on an aluminum plat, about which I have written in post Decoupage.
Few years I did not work on any decoupage project.This year completed many decoupage projects in the process of decorating my craft room. One with a craft table and also on a shelf to keep in my craft room. And recently on mdf box, with paper napkin.

Decoupage on metal :
This project also part of decorating my craft room. As I paint sometimes , I have collection of paints and brushes. Recently when I visited Itsy Bitsy shop I bought some metal containers and holders. These can be bought online also. Here it is :
As the first step , applied primer:

I had some decoupage papers with images of old streets of Italy. I don't know whether streets in Italy look like this , but the shop keeper told be this is decoupage paper with images of streets in Italy :). Here are those decoupage papers:

Next step to attach the papers on the tin:

I have used modpodge for this project , as the size of the tin is small. And painted with colors matching to the design on the papers.

Now it is ready to hold the paint and brushes I have.
Many craft learners ask me whether to use fevicol or modpdge for decoupage. In case the object is big in size like shelf or table etc I use fevicol to stick the paper and to give gloss I use modpodge. If the object is small I use modpodge to stick as well as for gloss.
Made one more box with Warli design , soon will share about that.
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
