Assemble Your Tools!

You won’t need much in the way of crafty tools for this project, just a selection of paints, brushes and Mod Podge. Mod Podge is a glue and sealant hybrid made specially for decoupage projects, which you'll find in matte, satin and gloss. Grab yourself a bottle of the gloss, and several different sizes of paintbrushes. You'll also need a few colors of paint, preferably including at least one metallic. If you aren't someone who keeps a stable of craft paint on-hand, wait until you've decided just what art you're decoupaging before buying your paint. That way you'll be able to coordinate the paint with the picture it will surround.
