Use texture paste and tissue paper to create a collage!


    Step 1
    Cut the railroad board to desired size (6x8” used in examples).
  • Step 2
    Make an interesting design with the modeling tools and texture medium. Let the paste dry overnight.
  • Step 3
    Cut or rip shapes out of the tissue to match all of the patterns created by the texture paste in your design.
  • Step 4
    Using glue in a decoupage-like manner, paste the tissue paper to the design. Use firm pressure to push the tissue into all of the grooves of the paste so the design stands out.
    Optional Tip 1
    The more the texture paste stands off of the railroad board, the more your design will show once covered with tissue paper.
    Optional Tip 2
    Leave blank areas on the railroad board, which will create a more dramatic design (don't cover the entire board with texture paste).
    Optional Tip 3
    Try adding embellishments, such as glitter or sand.
    Optional Tip 4
    Mix different types of tissues, such as bleeding tissue, for a varied effect.
