How to Decopatch!
Step 1: Cut or tear Decopatch paper into small pieces. Tearing is preferable as torn edges blend together better than edges cut with scissors.
Step 2: Apply Paperpatch glossy glue to the area where the paper is to be placed.
Step 3: Place one piece of Decopatch paper on the glued surface.
Step 4: Apply a new coating of Paperpatch glue on top the paper. Smooth the surface, working from the centre to the edges.
Step 5: Cover the object entirely with paper and glue. Each piece should overlap the next. The overlap should be minimal only enough to cover the edges of the previously glued piece.
