Materials and Tools:
decorative rice paper in two colors
1. Dilute decoupage with water until it's creamy (about 50-50 water to glue).
2. Cut out or tear pieces of rice paper. Brush pieces with decoupage and stick onto fishbowl. Continue until entire bowl is covered, overlapping as you go.
3. For the fern, we traced a fern picture to create a pattern and cut out the green rice paper using the pattern as a guide. The fern was glued on last.
