"Découpage Artists Worldwide from 1971"

The National Guild of Decoupeurs (NGD) was founded in 1971 as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education in the art of decoupage, to encouraging a high level of quality, and to offering an exchange of creative ideas and a Annual Convention and Exhibition in April . NGD is now a prestigious worldwide Guild. As growth develops, regional chapters are formed where members can join together to hold workshops and learn the many techniques of decoupage. Inspiration, creativity and knowledge are generated, leading the decoupage artist into new horizons and lasting relationships. In 2008 we changed our name to Decoupage Artists Worldwide to better reflect our growing international membership.

DÉCOUPAGE HISTORY

We all have our teachers and mentor, who inspired us through the years. These Artists contributed to Guild’s greatness and continue to inspire young découpeurs with their teaching and experience, and with their marvellous works.

Classic Découpage

CLASSIC DÉCOUPAGE

Découpage, a French word, refers to the technique of composing a work of art by applying meticulously cut pieces from printed paper to an object. The pieces are carefully arranged into a design, glued into place and finished with many coats of laquer or varnish, with intermittent sanding until the cut-outs can no longer be felt. The technique was first developed in an effort to resemble Chinese laquered pieces.

DÉCOUPAGE TRENDS

The enthusiasm with which the Guild has been accepted worldwide has been of great benefit. It has allowed this traditional art form to evolve and grow with the sharing of many innovative techniques, styles and products. The result is an international gallery of art as individual as the artists themselves..
