The chair started out as a plain wooden chair, but after learning about decopatch at a craft convention, I thought I would brighten it up to fit in with my craft room.

It took about 5 hours, I like how it turned out. It really brightens the room up

very pretty - i like your color combinations, and that green is so vibrant!

I know what decoupage is, but what is the difference between that and decopatch?

Very pretty, love that chair  Grin

 Apparently Decopatch is the "new" Decoupage.  It's not much different as far as I can see except they are making fancy design papers which are thinner and less time consuming possibly than decoupage.

Here's a few online descriptions of "decopatch"...

 "What is Decopatch?
Decopatch is a playful adaptation of the French word decoupage, or decouper, meaning to cut out. It is the creative art of assembling, pasting and varnishing paper cut outs to decorate objects, from simple designs to complex works of art."

"Decopatch on the other hand is a more fun and a less time consuming craft. As pretty as decoupage can be I have to say Yay! All the fun, great results but less layers and time required. This is the prefect craft for children and adults, and can be something done in an hour or you could spend days creating your masterpiece. No scissors are required for decopatch as the beautiful paper can be ripped to size and used on most materials from wood to metal, plastic to paper mache. The papers are nice and thin, colour fast and strong. This makes them perfect for folding around small ears and more than one pattern can be used on the same object creating a really dramatic effect."

"What is Decopatch? Decopatch is a specially formulated art paper designed for covering objects creating a  fabulous paint effect. Decopatch  paper is deep dyed and glazed. It will not break apart when glued & the colours will never fade or run. You can use it to cover and decorate anything & everything papeir mache objects, wood, glass, metal, plastic ceramic, stone & even wicker! The Decopatch paper is designed to be used with the special Decopatch glue varnish"
