Eggs – A New Beginning

All eggs in these cabinets are real, lovingly decoupaged by Members’ of Découpage Guild Australia.

The Guild was formed in 1984 by a group of dedicated découpeurs. 2022 is no different – we aim high.


Découpage is a timeless art that uses paper cut-outs to creatively decorate objects with hard surfaces such as wood, bisque, glass, eggs etc. These paper images are cut to create a design which is glued onto a complementary painted background. Varnish and sanding techniques are applied to achieve a finished artefact which when completed can rival the finest piece of inlaid wooden art or the most delicate piece of porcelain.
