The optimum paper size, gsm and print have all been painstakingly curated by Michelle, owner of MINT, and is a culmination of years of working with decoupage papers, and refurbishing furniture with individuality, style and artistic scope in mind.
Please note that these images and this particular paper have been paired very carefully with absolute artistic merit in mind. The purpose is to create a piece that is as authentic looking as is possible. They are intended to look like actual artwork on your piece – and your piece then becoming the artwork. As such, depending on your method of application you can expect different outcomes – straight decoupage application will result in your paper being ever so slightly crinkled (though flat) which can assist in making your piece look authentic. Whereas, the iron on method of decoupage will result in your paper being very flat and clean on your piece.
Each paper comes with instructions (there is also a comprehensive video tutorial on the MINT facebook page).
Each paper should be applied using an image medium. Your image can be finished with the same image medium or you can opt to use a water or oil based topcoat for the best protection.
