Let's start work on our decoupage. First of all, it is necessary to make the cask preparation, so that it is suitable for our work. For this, it is necessary to sandstone the base of the box using sandpaper. Come over each corner of our future box, removing various irregularities, or rough surfaces. The metal elements of the lining should be removed with a screwdriver. Thus, it will be easier to work on the basis of the product. Casket in the style of vintage Then, you need to perform tinting the product. This is necessary in order for the texture of the wooden cover to shine through the drawing of the future product. Also, you should use vintage filters. Here we mix the colors in two colors. Before painting the product, each edge of the product should be pasted with adhesive tape. Thus, the paint will not fall inside and create an untidy appearance. In the first layer, use the paint from brown acrylic. Then, carefully cover the entire surface of the box (outer part), after which, wait about 30 minutes for our blank to dry. After this, it is necessary to apply a varnish surface. We wait some time before the varnish dries and we recreate the effect of rubbing. Wax candle will recreate the shabby effect of the product. Then, we will apply a second coat of acrylic lacquer. Wax will not allow to fix the coating, which will recreate the effect of cracked paint, which could be removed. Through it we will see the remnants of the dark layer from below. After this, we proceed to apply the second,a light layer of white acrylic paint. We rub the casket with sandpaper, after the light layer has dried. Then, we make sanding of the places where the work was done with wax, until we get a brown version of the shade. Wipe the product, remove dust from the product. Picture in vintage style Our background is processed. It is necessary to transfer the drawing to the product. Separate the top layer or picture from the decoupage map, napkins. Determine which part of your illustration will be placed on the product. Then, we use our hands to tear off our picture. Scissors we get smooth edges, whereas in decoupage it is better to recreate the effect of a smooth transition. We put the napkin in the right place, then, with the help of a brush, apply glue on the product. We glue from the middle to the edge of the product. Then, iron the wrinkles, various roughnesses. After, wait until the picture dries. Using a sponge, we process the product with a sponge. The print is executed in the edge parts of the product, on the edge. Thus, the effect of antiquity will become even more noticeable. After the pattern dries, apply the varnish,which was designed to cover products made of wood. You can take a varnish based on water. It withers faster. After that, decorate the casket, screw our iron elements with a screwdriver. Then, we use scrapbooking elements for product obsolescence. You can paint the product with pads with shades of gold and dark colors. We use a sponge for this.
