Painting A Decorative Screen

Step 1

Begin by painting the screen with one coat of the parchment coloured matt emulsion paint. I would recommend using a medium decorators paint brush. Leave it to dry thoroughly before applying the second coat of paint. And leave to dry again.

Step 2

The screen will be decorated using squares of tissue paper. So you will need to mark out horizontal and vertical guidelines over the screen using a tape measure, ruler and pencil.

Photocopying Leaves And Flowers For A Decoupage Screen

Step 3

Next, spray the sheets of tissue paper with gold paint. And stick down the squares of golden tissue paper to the screen using a paint brush with either wallpaper paste or PVA glue.

Step 4

Now, cut out some sheets of tissue paper to fit the curved top edge if your screen has one, and glue it into place. Then make some coloured photocopies of the fresh and dried flowers and leaves. Then carefully cut out each of the shapes using a craft knife and cutting mat. These will decorate your decoupage screen.

Step 6

Next for the decoration. Arrange the flower and leaf photocopies on the screen until you are happy with the design. Then you can glue them into position.

Adding Decoupage Details

Step 7

Now to arrange the dried leaves and flowers at the curved top of the screen if you have one. Once you are happy with the layout, glue them in place.

Step 8

Then make a tooth edged pattern template out of stencil cardboard. Use this template to cut out some edging strips from the handmade paper. Use any coloured paper that you like for yours. You could even do a scalloped shape if you would prefer.

Finally, glue the edging strips to the edges of the decoupage screen. Once the glue is dry, cover the screen with two coats of satin varnish, making sure that you leave it to dry between coats.
