Materials:

  5. Brush Matte Decoupage onto front of canvas. Place cheesecloth over front of canvas and begin pressing into place using brush to press into crevices. Continue to work with the cheesecloth until it conforms to the shape of the wood designs. Brush Matte Decoupage on all sides of the canvas and press/glue cheesecloth in place. Cut off excess cheesecloth and smooth any edges that have lifted. Place on wax paper to dry.
