Decoupage (or d├ęcoupage) is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper bits onto it in combination with special paint effects, gold leaf etc. Commonly 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 multiple coats of varnish until the "stuck on" appearance disappears and the result looks like painting or inlay work.
