    Rubber Stamp Decoupage Crafting Using 5 Steps

    Rubber stamp decoupage crafting is a highly individualistic and sought after technique, with the ability to produce individualistic and aesthetically pleasing results. Fortunately enough, just about everyone can accomplish and successfully make use of this technique with practise and effort. If you intend to give this technique a try, there are 5 steps to follow:

    1. Materials

    Ready the materials and keep them easily accessible before you begin decoupage crafting with your rubber stamps. You will need the item you want to apply decoupage crafting on, varnish, tissue paper, rubber stamps, waterproof ink, paint brushes and also your decoupage medium. Your decoupage medium can be created with 3 parts PVA glue and one part water or even using mod podge. Lightweight papers like tissue papers usually work ideally with thin decoupage materials.

    2. Prepare your item

    Now, you will have to prepare the item you want decoupage crafting to be applied to. Make sure the material is clean, with no dust or grease. Once you ascertain the item is in good condition, go ahead and apply the decoupage directly on the surface of the item. Make sure to paint a layer with your brush as evenly as possible. After you have done so, allow your decoupage medium to dry.

    3. Rubber stamps and tissue paper

    While you let the decoupage medium dry, you can use sheets of tissue paper and your rubber stamps. The tissue paper is going to be torn into pieces so your rubber stamp images can overlap with no problem. Stamp your rubber stamps using ink on your tissue paper and rip it into small pieces. Once you are done, you can begin to paste them onto the item.

    4. Paste

    Begin pasting the pieces of tissue paper onto the item using another wet paint brush. Make sure that there are no air bubbles in the material when you do so and that the decoupage medium is entirely covered by the tissue paper pieces. Do note that you will have to build up layer by layer so take your time. While it may look disconcerting at the moment, you will be able to see what it looks like when it eventually dries. Make sure to fill up additional space on the item.

    5. Finish

    Once you are done with the effect, let your item dry. The decoupage medium will hold well with your rubber stamped tissue paper layers. To preserve the effect and make it longer lasting, you can apply two coats of varnish. Attaining the perfect results may require some trial and error so experimentation is highly recommended. Feel free to combine this technique with others to see what can be created as the final product!
