Beer and wine bottles, jam and condiment jars, it’s time for a wardrobe overhaul!
Second year pupils got busy with newspapers/magazines and vinavil to give our collection of transparent bottles a new look. Each pupil chose a theme to apply using the technique of decoupage.
Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing coloured paper cutouts onto it. Usually an object like a small box or an item of furniture is covered by cutouts from magazines or other papers. Each layer is sealed with varnishes (such as transparent drying glue) until the “stuck on” appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work.
Themes included famous faces, newspaper print vs colour, magazine headlines and word association (crudo/cotto, raw/cooked), and an entire seaside landscape using cutouts from travel magazines, applied to a series of glass vessels.
