Tutorial Decoupage Moose 250
2. Start adding decoupatch glue to an area of the moose and then add the paper over the glue. Brush glue over the paper to seal. Continue adding glue and paper to the moose until all areas except the antlers and hoofs are covered.

3. Use gold paint to paint the antlers and hoofs. It may be necessary to add a second coat if the first coat does not cover appropriately.
