This Annie Sloan with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Decoupage Paper shows some of the illustrations of fauna from the RHS Lindley Collections. This decoupage Paper uses hand-coloured engraved pages from a popular 1819 publication showing three beautiful songbirds nesting amongst foliage. Here we’ve featured Tomtits, Redpolls, and Pied Finches. They are printed on undyed tissue paper, designed to harmonize with an Old White painted background (Old White is available as both Chalk Paint® and Annie Sloan Wall Paint).
*George Brookshaw’s “Six Birds, Accurately Drawn and Coloured after Nature, with Full Directions for the Young Artist”, designed as a companion to the “Treatise on Flower Painting”. Each colour plate has a matching uncoloured plate so the reader can copy the colour illustration. Brookshaw (1751-1823) was an artist and teacher of flower painting who exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1819.
