Step 15: Gluing Down the Arches for Dimensional Decoupage
Glue down each fresh, dry arch over it's twin in the guides. The advantage of doing this on card stock will be apparent when you have glued them all down. I go the whole distance: I print the other architectural parts (the big arches, and the columns ), and glue them over the artwork for that extra realism. Depending on how particular you are, you can do one or two layers. It really looks almost sculptural when you add those extra layers. Normally this would be blasphemy in classic decoupage, but I love the illusion of depth in the surface. I can't carve, but I love to build with paper.
