Decoupage Pressed Flowers

dori1951April 23, 2008

I have this wild idea I would like to try, but have no idea exactly how to do it. I have a spinning wheel, I would like to decoupage some dried flowers on the open side. I understand about the gluing and all, but I am not sure what finish I need so that they will be protected. The wheel moves freely so there will be no rubbing or anything like that, but in moving and things I want them to be sealed.

Can you give me and idea of how to go about this?

Thanks

Dori, I've used Acrylic Matte Medium as the "glue" and finish coat(s) for decoupaging on wooden trays, canister sets, etc. which get handled frequently and it's held up well. I just use damp cloth to clean... The acrylic medium is supposed to be waterproof once dry, but I just use damp cloth, no damage so far. The medium can be thinned with water if you'd like....best to practice a little first.

It comes in small jars...mine is Liquitex brand from art supply store. I like the matte as it has absolutely no shine, but it's available in gloss and semigloss, too. Good luck. josh
