Decoupage is the process of decorating a surface or an object with themed cut-out prints made from paper. Print rooms depicting specific themes of travel and exotic scenes from distant countries were popular in the Grand Tour era of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Black and white sketches, prints, and etchings were carefully cut out and applied tastefully to walls, and to produce ornate carved mouldings, cartouches and pediments which were hand-drawn, printed and cut out to frame the applied prints. Decoupage was also applied to furniture and screens, a practice particularly popular in the Victorian era. Decoupage is equally popular today, and is created on walls, panels, screens and furniture in the studio and in situ. Decoupage entails a great deal of desk-based research to identify and select appropriate imagery and motifs, and detailed planning involving sketches and scaled up drawings of proposed schemes prior to commencement application of decoration. Decoupage and print rooms can be created using any chosen theme in any interior space.
