The Art of Decoupage

A look at Decoupage art.

John Derian
Decoupage artist John Derian makes beautiful things out of pictures. What is decoupage. You cut out pictures, glue them onto objects, then apply a few protective coats of glue. And there are many Coastal Decoupage Projects you can do.

John Derian uses his extensive collection of vintage images for his decoupage. Some of them are collages, others he paints on, and they are reprinted and made into glass accessories, as well as Melamine Plates. Here are a few of his decoupage pieces.
