Nooky Gossip 37! Spring Sale! Decoupage! NEW Dixie Belle Decoupage Range! NEW Dixie Belle Chalk Paint Fan Deck! General Finishes Update! Ercol Sideboard In The Spotlight!
Decoupage is an ancient technique for adding faux hand painted finishes to your home furniture and home décor. The word decoupage comes from the French verb découper, 'to cut out'. For a traditional true decoupage look the decoupage should be translucent enough it appears as those it has been painstakingly hand painted. It’s an age-old technique for cheating artistic skills!

Nooky Gossip 35: Dixie Belle White Lightning Cleaner Lands in the UK! Prep Your Furniture for Painting! General Finishes Update! NEW Dixie Belle Transfers! Custom Fusion Mix In The Spotlight!
We’re now stocking Dixie Belle White Lightning Cleaner – yes it is finally here in the UK! This stuff is perfect for prepping furniture for painting (please note it should not be used as a common household cleaner or on metal) so this week, let’s talk about prepping!

Your finished piece will only be as good as the base you start with. The type of prep you need to do will depend on the piece you are working on. When working with used furniture it’s typically been loved for quite a few years i.e., it’s been scratched, it’s started peeling and it’s dirty.
