Decoupage is an art of gluing pictures to an object. After gluing the picture, it is decorated with colors. Decoupage is done on many things, such as boxes, furniture,pots ,photo frame ,bangles etc. Decoupage jewelries are also made.

I've tried this on an aluminium plate. I used a poster for this. This art needs little bit of oil painting skills.
Here is the one I made on aluminium plate:
The central picture is glued and the rest of the part of the plate, is painted with oil paint. While painting,we should be careful to match the colors of the picture glued.

I have tried this on pots also. Have a look:

I found this picture in a daily news paper. It was black and white picture. I have used ceramic also to make the window and the curtain. This gives the effect that the lady is waiting for someone.
Another pot :

 Here also I've glued a poster. This has the picture of a princess Alankara(decorating herself with ornaments and make up) and her  Sakhis(friends) helping her. Is the Sakhi jealous of her ? Can you see it from her expressions? :-)
And its compared with the Darpana Sundari sculpture. Nice pictures. I cut the pictures from the poster and glued those on the pot. Rest all done with oil painting. Of course 2-3 coat of varnish shall be applied.

Now I'm planning do decoupage on a pot. The picture is deep sea scene. Very exciting.Isn't it? Lots of colors to play with and quite challenging to me. Lets see how it goes.


  1. wonderful....very neat work,I really love it.

  2. Thanks Seema. I loved your comment. :-)

  3. lovely decoupage I liked the darpana sundari

  4. Thanks Anandhirajan. Yes, that Darpan Sundari concept is good.

  5. This is sheer talent! I havent even attempted this sort of thing-- wonderful and what an idea to recycle a picture from the newspaper!!


  6. Thanks Dr.Sonia. I'm not so perfect in this. You can see some mistakes. But next time I will try to make perfect one.

  7. I agree with all the previous comments - your decoupage is beautiful and unique! Have you thought of using pretty paper napkins for decoupage? That is a popular technique here in Australia. If you don't have these paper napkins in India, I would be happy to send you some to play with ;-)

  8. Thanks Gina. I think, if I browse through the craft stores, I should get those napkin papers. If I don't get I will definitely request you to send.
