How to Decoupage printed paper with Haksons Resin

Today, we bring you a project specially designed for all the crafters and aspiring crafters out there!

Materials Used:

 

Process:

 

Step 1: Depending on the size of your project pick your paper since the wood is 18×18 inches to save any hassle of cutting you can use 6×6 inches sheets spread out over 3 rows and 3 columns.

Step 2: Sure about your pattern? Time to stick the paper, since it is thick enough we won’t need any primer base simply take your decoupage glue and spread it out with a paintbrush then press it gently with the tissue paper to avoid any air bubbles

Step 3: Let the bottom layer dry completely next with the paintbrush go over the top with two generous layers of the decoupage glue waiting for each layer to dry in between. Make sure that you seal every edge, corner and the space between each paper perfectly.

Step 4: Thinking about the brush strokes? It’s time for the resin to make it completely disappear! Mix your resin and pour it onto the project and watch all that texture vanish!

Step 5: To get rid of any bubbles use your heat gun on the lowest setting and move it over your piece in a quick motion. Cover your project and 24 hours later it’s ready to use!
