Basic Material

Decoupage or decorating painting needs basic material in doing this art work. The list of things are

1) Brush
There are many types of brush such as flat, round , liner , stippler, angular, filbert n fan brush.
Different brush gives different stroke work.

2) Acrylic Paint
There are many kinds/types of acrylic paint in the market. Usually I used Jo Sonja n Folk Art brand. Others brand in the market are Mattise, Pebeo, Americana etc.

3) Sealer
The purpose of sealer is to cover the surface project from peeling, cracking or powdering off.

4) Varnish
Protect the painting from scratches or water spotting.

5) Sand paper
To give a smooth surface.

6) Wood or MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) board or metal or recycled materials
Before starting any painting, I will sanding the surface n applying sealer after the sanding process.

7) Gesso ( decoupage )
Apply gesso after applying the sealer....usually I used white Gesso. Dab the gesso using sponge onto project surface.

8) Tracing paper
To trace the chosen pattern

9) Carbon paper
To transfer the chosen pattern onto the work/project surface
