Decoupage bicycle

I started out with a silver Windsor Hour. Boring.

And then “Dragoned” it out this spring with the help of my scissors, some old magazines and Cordy.

**Update: The process I used to decoupage my bike is actually super simple. I explain it briefly in the comments.

  1. hi, could you write something more about the whole process? With what substance did you cover these pictures?

  2. Hey, Adam! I actually attached the magazine cutouts with just a glue stick and then painted over everything with a decoupage glue. After that I sprayed it with a clear paint so it would be waterproof. Over the years, the corners of some of the stickers and cutouts have started to come up a bit, so I’m planning to add another layer of decoupage paint. Still, it’s held up in weather and all for over two years. Not bad! Hope this helps!

  3. Hello there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a team of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us Good information to work on. You have done a extraordinary job!

  4. Looks great, It’s so nice to see the different color tires arnuod now. Getting tired of black and white walls.I think this bike would look good with a center dropdown kickstand. Like some of the CCM’s and older Monark drop down stands. Red spokes are the final touch. Good job.

  5. Hi there. Did you also paint your chain? Or did you color it using other methods? Upon closer inspection, the outer plates of the chain is pink while the insides are dark-colored.
