Deco Mache & DecoArt Handmade Canvas tutorial

Trimcraft are now stockists of the wonderful DecoArt craft range full of exciting products like chalk paint, misters and fabric paints. They complement the Trimcraft brands perfectly and we can’t wait to show you some exciting projects going forward. 

We had a lot of fun with this project and we love the effect you can get by mixing Deco Mache papers and DecoArt paints, see how we made it below. 

How to Make 

1.Cover your canvas with 5 cm strips of Deco Mache papers, start at the top and work your way down; we used 2 designs to give us a varying look once the paint is added. We used First Edition Decoupage Glue and Varnish to stick our papers down.  

2.When dry use alphabet stickers to write out your quote, this is where you can make it your own and personalise your canvas with your favourite fonts and quotes.

3.Paint over your canvas in your chosen colours, we used a variety of DecoArt Chalky paint colours to get a tonal look. 

4.Once dry carefully peel off the alphabet stickers to reveal the Deco Mache designs underneath.

You can have great fun mixing papers, paints and quotes to create a range of fab projects for your home. If you make your own canvas we would love to see them in the project gallery, where you could win our Project of the Month.
