Decoupage with a Twist – Decoupage is the French work meaning ‘cut’.  This decorative art dates back to the 12th century where is was used to decorate lanterns, windows and boxes. The process needs patience! 

The cutting of an image can be challenging, especially when is small and has many legs like insects and bees. There is a minimum of 17 layers of paint, varnish and lacquer on all these items.
