So giving it a bit of thought I decided to have a go at some decopatch on this little duck. So off I went to Hobbycraft and found some paper in the right colour. I have tried decopatch before and was not too keen but was determined to revamp the little chap. I actually found it quite relaxing this time.
All you have to do is tear the paper into small pieces and apply to your object with special decopatch glue. I applied plenty of glue and used two layers of paper. When it was all covered I painted it all over with the glue as it works like a varnish. Left it to dry completely and then tied a ribbon around his neck. I am happy with the end result and my little duck now looks so much smarter in my bathroom, where I think he will sit for many more years.
Finished duck looking much smarter.
