What Tools & Supplies do I need for Paper Tole 3D Decoupage?

Below is a listing of what is included in our
Complete Tool and Supply Kit, if you already have some items then you can purchase just what you need.  I will mark what is necessary and what is optional.  Please note that all of the items included in the package at high quality and are what I personally use myself and also in my 3D Art Classes.
 
Self Healing Cutting Mat– you will need this to have a safe smooth surface to cut your project out with a Craft Knife.
Craft Knife – Using a Craft knife rather than Scissors is faster and more accurate. Some people need to make themselves learn to get comfortable with the Knife.
Extra Blades for Knife – Always have extra Blades, a dull knife blade will drag and tear the paper
Shaping Pad – Shaping changes the look for your project, if you don’t shape then you are just stacking flat paper and will not have the realistic look we all want.
Metal Shaping Tool Set –This set has 4 different Shaping Heads and will never wear out. We do have additional Handles if you decide you want later.
Wood Shaping Tool – Used for simple Shaping and also to apply Silicone for the Water or Snow effect. Just be sure to wipe off all the Silicone after using it.
Silicone – One tube of silicone should be good for at least 2 Kits if used correctly. Please read instruction sheet that we ship with the Silicone.  Can also be tinted with paint or food coloring to add a Water, Snow or textured effect.
Syringe for Silicone application – Great little item used correctly (read instructions on packaging) saves Silicone and helps avoid messy work space
Brush Marker – Used to color the white Cut edges of the print pieces. Do not skip this step. If you use other Markers test on scraps first so it does not bleed into the paper
Tweezers Curved Tip – Train yourself to always use the Tweezers to put the print pieces on the picture, very helpful
Water Clean Up Glaze – Important, after you mount your picture on the board Glaze the entire picture before building the project, then glaze finish picture.
Glaze Brush-(non Shedding) – You can use any small non shedding brush, but apply glaze with a light coat
Scissors – Curved Tip – Optional only used for Furring or Feathering Cuts.
*The only item not included in this Tool and Supply Kit is the Spray Adhesive.  We do sale the Spray Adhesive however it can not be shipped through the USPS on with UPS shipping.
