– How to Make Your Own Decoupage Medium

This easy-to-make DIY decoupage medium is the perfect touch to any home craft or project.

Supplies needed

Elmer’s Glue-All
Paper cup


You can adjust the measurement of glue to water if necessary
When cutting out intricate designs or special shapes, an X-ACTO knife works great!
Magazines, greeting cards and pictures make great cutouts for a decoupage project


Making an excellent and inexpensive decoupage medium is easy with Elmer’s Glue-All and water.

To make decoupage medium:

1. Use craft stick to mix together three parts Elmer’s® Glue-All® with 1 part water in a paper cup.

2. Stir well.

3. Use sponge brush to spread mixture over surface.

4. Papers may stretch or bubble up initially, so smooth out air from bubbles with finger and then go over area again with foam brush. Minor wrinkling will shrink and flatten as it dries.

5. Let thoroughly dry over night and then spray surface with matte sealer.


Decoupage Paints

Apply primer or paint if you want to refinish the furniture. To change the look of the furniture before you decoupage, apply a primer and let it dry. Then apply your choice of paint. While you should avoid latex paint because it will bubble and blister when you decoupage, you can use:

Acrylic paint
Chalk paint
Spray paint
Waterbase stain

Kills 2 primer and Behr Latex paint

Chalk paint can be made with 1 part drywall mud and three parts latex paint
