Decopatch Paper Maché Fish Decoration

Simple paper maché fish can be found in craft or decorating stores. By decorating them with decopatch paper, you can create individual looking decorations for your home. Not only does decopatch work well with paper maché items, but also can alter just about any kind of underground.



Decopatch Fish

For this project you will need:

- paper maché fish
- paint brush
- decopatch glue
- decopatch paper of choice

Decopatch Paper for Fish
This is the paper that was used for this project.


1. Tear the decopatch paper out in different size pieces. Larger pieces for larger areas and smaller pieces for more delicate sections such as the fins.
2. Apply decopatch glue to the portion of the fish to be covered and then press the paper into the glue. Now add more glue to the paint brush and “paint” the paper with decopatch glue. This seals the paper and gives it a nice shine afterwards when dry.
3. Overlap this piece with another piece of paper and apply in the same manner. Keep adding more paper in the appropriate colors until the entire fish is covered.
