- Old Tea Pot (Thrift store, your attic etc.)
- Slick Stick (Dixie Belle)
- Mod Podge
- White Chalk Style Paint
- Hot Glue (Get it HERE) & Hot Glue Gun
- Liquid Gold Leif
- Decoupage Queen Rice Paper

Start by covering the whole tea pot in Slick Stick by Dixie Belle, then dry. Use a hair dryer or your heat gun to speed up the process.
setting the base
Secondly, you will take your White Chalk Style paint and paint your tea pot ion two coats, drying in between.
**For Decoupage you want a bright white base to get the full effect of the papers.
For this next step I used scrap decoupage rice papers I had from Decoupage Queen.
Start by sizing up your decoupage paper and trimming the excess with your water pen then tearing away. By doing this it give a more natural feel verses a hard trimmed edge.
Begin the process of decoupaging your rice paper onto the teapot using Mod Podge. Next work your way slowly around the pot with your brush, Mod Podge and paper. Finally do a sealing coat over top of your rice paper then dry with your heat gun.
Wax on wax off
Start by mixing some dark and clear wax then apply it onto your teapot. I only applied to the painted parts of the tea pot. Afterwards wipe away the excess with a clean cloth.
Bling it up
Start this section by adding bling where you feel it would suite best. Next glue down with your hot glue gun, I used a beaded trim, and a bling trim.
an extra touch
This next step I took some liquid Gold Leif and added it to the raised parts of my teapot. Following that I also wiped it around the hard edges of my tea pot with my fingers.
