I used mod podge to make the dahlia out of pieces of fabric.
This is my first attempt at decoupage. I'm pleased with the results, but it was definitely a learning process. If I did it again I would fusible interface the back of the pieces for stability and so you don't end up seeing through them so much.
Does anyone who has done this kinda of thing before want to give me some pointers? I got lots of bubbles. Almost none were there to begin with. I was really careful to smooth out each piece. But they appeared later. Some fabrics seemed to really be a problem. The majority of them I was able to poke with an exacto and smooth flat, but some are there to stay. I'm wondering if it's because the table is in the garage. Could it be the heat/elements?
