Homemade Decoupage Paste

If you're in need of some decoupage paste but don't have any on hand and don't have time to get some, try this simple homemade recipe.

-Elmer's Glue or Tacky Glue
-container (with lid if wanting to store)
-stir stick

Mix equal parts of glue and water in your container. Stir until uniform or until you have a milky consistency. Mixture should be paintable but not to thick.

To apply  your decoupage paste, paint a thin layer on the object to be decoupaged and lay your image on top. Smooth out any air bubbles and then paint a thin layer over the image. Layer images for best results.

A sponge-tip craft brush is great for decoupage because it leaves no brush lines or bristles behind.
