About us is about our passion for our craft. We began designing and building toys and other items for our family. While Warren designed and built dolls houses, castles, toy boxes, and bookcases, etc. for our grandchildren, I had stumbled across an article on decoupage and decided to study the technique. The grandchildren have grown up but our passion to create is still there. We expanded our workshop and craft area and continue to work from our home in Canberra.
Apart from building all the products mentioned above, Warren also makes the children’s name plaques, wooden boxes and my scrapbook/photo album covers. My decoupage designs are created and displayed on our albums and jewelry boxes and also on the dolls houses and name plaques.
We are proud to say all our products are Australian made and hand crafted.
What is Decoupage?
Decoupage has been around for many, many years. It has been said that it originated in France in the early eighteen hundreds.
Decoupage is the art of decorating surfaces to form a pleasing decorative composition by creating your own design and then coating with several layers of lacquer or varnish. A piece can often take months to complete. The finished surface feels very smooth and silky after many layers of lacquer, sanding and polishing.
Decoupage is still a popular art form today and it is used to decorate a variety of things. It gives an item the effect that a picture has been painted on it.
Because each piece in our range is created individually there may be slight variations in colour or design from the item you have seen on our website. Please be assured that every effort will be made to produce your item as closely as possible to the one you have selected.
We are able to cater to most requests and are happy to discuss any special requirements.
As all items are handmade you will need to contact us in regard to delivery dates.
