4.Once dry, using a dry flat brush apply chalk paint Buttermilk.Apply more paint in the areas where you are planning to decoupage and let it dry Lightly sand the corners and edges to give a distressed look.
5.I used the lovely decoupage filament paper tea time bouquet for my project today.
6.Meanwhile, I removed the sliding top and used Little Birdie Thai clay to make hand sculpted flowers, leaves and a butterfly using simple sculpting tools and stuck to the top using silicon glue. Keep it aside overnight to dry completely.You can also use silicone moulds for the same.
