Orhan Veli Kanık, Turkish Poetry finalize his poem with this words; ‘Bir de Rakı şişesinde balık olsam’ – ‘And a fish if I in a bottle of Rakı.’ I transformed a Rakı bottle into an aquarium. The fishes for decoupage is from our tickets, on weekend we went to see a big aquarium in Ankara, yes the tickets were damn expensive, why not use them as decoupage medium:)
You should try Rakı, it is a hard alcoholic Turkish National drink, and you can re-use its bottle always:)
My Sister e-mailed this re-use, hand-made art piece to me. They should not say ‘Pasta is not healthy.’ On the contrary, it is is sustainable:)
She is an interior architect. Well, inevitable result; elegantly beautiful:)

For the first time, I have an order. Well, I will not be paid and my mom told me how to do exactly. Still, it is fun:)
What you see is a present for our relative, hope she will like it, of course, firstly my mom:)
I painted another bucket to be a friend of my Striped Painted Bucket🙂 Hope you like it…
I painted this glass Yogurt Cap and add some ceramic decoupage. Now, we are using it to add some humidity by putting it top of our heater. I did not like the colours so much but I can change it any time:)
I painted this bottles with wood painting tools. The colours, papers, decoupage glue and the milk bottles. I might add dots later. I also used ceramic decoupage under the sea shells and light house.
One decoupage trick is you might choose Plaid – Royal Coat – Decoupage Finish. It is very productive and effective. I am using it all the time and when you compare the other brands it is the best one. You may realize the bottle with lines have a flue view underneath, I did it by painting it with Plaid Decoupage Finish 1401 Clear.
That is my new Welcome Sign Board. I made it with ceramic decoupage in different shapes.
Hoşgeldiniz is Welcome in Turkish…
My Aunties loves silver, flowers, sparkling and all together.

Wood Aging + Decoupage
I’ve made this to put my make-up stuff. I used sandpaper for aging. First; painted the brown colour, then the white colour, then decoupage, and finally yacht varnish.
For decoupage, I used IKEA napkins for these geometric trees.
I did not know, if you use yacht varnish so thick, you made the white surface yellow. However, it was a beautiful mistake. My lesson; do not use yacht varnish so thick, be patient, it is not a water based paint, needs to absorb the wood…
