In this master class, we will work onorange tree. This work is interesting in that it combines several different techniques. As a result, we get a fairly bright composition, which decorates the interior and gives joy to others. Materials for work:
- clay modeling terracotta Keraplast;
- acrylic paints (red, white and blue);
- paints for acrylic fabrics "Decola";
- ribbon for embroidery satin 3 mm orange -5 m;
- ribbon for embroidery silk 10 mm green melange-5 m;
- ribbon for embroidery silk 7 mm light green melange -5 m;
- ribbon for embroidery silk 4 mm blue and blue - 1 m each;
- threads of a mulina (yellow, light green, dark green, melange pink);
- threads "Iris Kirovskie" light gray;
- thread melange brown "Gamma";
- wood beads 7 mm - 23 pcs .;
- linen white (tablecloth) - 25 x 35 cm (base of embroidery);
- flax for workpieces - 15 x 15 cm.
Tools for work:
- Stack for modeling;
- pink wax crayon (or pastel oil pink);
- synthetic brush №6;
- pure water;
- needle with a wide eyelet and sharp tip "tapestry sharp No. 18, No. 24".
Toning the substrate First, we transfer the scheme to the substrate using black carbon paper. A little humidify the base with a spray gun with clean water. In the palette we prepare mustard dye. To do this, mix the red, green in equal proportions, then gradually add the yellow, until you get the right shade. Add water to make the paint liquid. After typing a little finished paint on the brush, paint the lower part of the diamond (on a damp cloth!). We dry the substrate. Pink chalk paint the borders on the perimeter of the diamond. Along the perimeter of the curbs we lay a stalk seam in 6 threads of mulina (pink melange). We embroider an orange tree with ribbons. 1. We transfer the contour of the woven vase to an additional piece of flax. The vase is woven with Iris threads of a brown melange shade. We begin to embroider baskets from vertical rods, which we will then braid. We embroider in two threads. Closer to the side of the bars we have a little closer to each other than in the middle. 2. We are braiding the basket from the bottom. We deduce a needle with a thread in the bottom corner of a basket on the front side and we conduct under the first vertical directing. We work the thread, not leaving on the wrong side, then - over the second, then - under the third and thus, alternate. When we reach the second side, we take the needle with the thread inside out, performing the puncture exactly on the line. 3. The reverse series is performed by stretching the needle exactly opposite. That is, if in the first row the thread passes under the guide, it means that we carry it over the guide, etc. We cut the prepared basket along the contour, leaving the allowance of 5 mm. 4. We draw into the needle a satin ribbon of orange color 3 mm wide, just like a normal thread, after cutting the tape at an acute angle. Stepping slightly from the edge, we stretch the needle through the tape. 5. We pierce the tape with the point of the needle and stretch the needle through and through. 6. We stretch the needle with the tape through the middle of the bead, leaving the tail with the size of a half-busine outside. We make a full turn of the tape, catching the tail inside the bend. 7. Each new turn must overlap slightly the previous one so as to hide the bead under the tape. Completely wrapping the bead, cut the tape diagonally, leaving a tail of 4-5 cm. We need 23 such blanks. 8. Having made a hem, we sew the basket along the contour with secret stitches. At the top of the basket, make an ellipse with a stalk seam in one thread, using the "Iris" threads, completing the top of the basket. The same threads make litter stitches for the trunk (12-15), the size of half the width of the basket in its upper part. 9. We encircle the barrel with filament suture with filaments of "Iris Kirovskie" gray in two strands. Embroider the branches with the same threads in two strands with a straight stitch. If the top and bottom of the basket do not turn outvery neat, follow the bottom part and the top of the basket with a stalk seam in two threads, covering all the irregularities. 10. In the lower part of the trunk with a Turkish seam we sew the grass in 6 threads of mulina. We use two colors: light green and dark green. We begin to embroider the Turkish seam from the front. Leaving the tail on the front, make a small loop (no more than 2-3 mm). With sharp scissors, we cut long tails at the loops level. eleven. We draw a green ribbon 4 mm wide into the needle and display it on the front side in the middle of the crown. Alternating a straight stitch and a ribbon, we embroider several different leaves alongside the trunk. In the middle of the crown we use a 10 mm wide strip (green melange), and closer to the edge we take a strip 7 mm wide (light green). 12. At the same time we have our oranges. For this purpose we deduce an empty needle on the front side with an eye on the face. We insert the tail of the tape into the needle and stretch it inside out, fix it with a simple white thread. Thus, we fill the entire crown, gradually embroidering the leaves and laying oranges throughout the area of the crown. 13. Straight stitch embroider blue flowers, and the buds next to perform a "French knot" in one navy. To make a straight stitch, we draw a needle with a ribbon in the middle of the flower, we melt the tape at the base and perform a needle punch by an amount not exceeding the width of the tape, strongly tightening the tape and keeping the volume. We fill the flower core with a "French knot" with a yellow mulina in 6 strands. Modeling of the Bas-Relief We transfer the drawing of the birdhouse oncardboard. Break off a small piece of modeling paste (about 3 cm in diameter), knead it in hands so that the paste becomes very soft and pliable, like plasticine. If the paste is cracked, moisten your hands with a damp cloth and re-warm it. When the paste is ready for molding, we fill itthe entire surface of the birdhouse at a thickness of 3 mm. Stack the surface and cut off excess on the border. We make a hole in the birdhouse and a few strips on the roof, imitating the boards. The stand for the birdhouse is made of a toothpick, attaching it to the still wet upper part. Leave to dry on a flat surface for 4-6 hours. After drying, you can paint the surface of the birdhouse with acrylic paints, and then varnish. Birds can be done conditionally. Roll a small ball (6-7 mm), flatten it a little, from one side, perform a guard, simulating a beak, on the other - a tail. On the side, draw a wing and a glazier. Ready-made bas-reliefs should be glued with universal building glue. Tape stitch Holding a free hand, we take out the tape on the front side. Straighten the end of the needle at the base. In the right direction, we lay the tape (it should not be strongly stretched), we make a puncture in the middle. Slowly we stretch the needle inside out, holding ittape, so that it does not twist, hold it while tightening. We form a large free bend. To make the leaves along the edge of the crown, we perform a ribbon stitch with a sharp end. To do this, when tightening the band, tighten the tape a little more strongly until a sharp tip is formed. Tip To tape stitch turned out to be volumetric, I advise you to first place an additional needle under the tape. So you fix the volume, and get a good stitch. French knot We remove the ribbon (thread) on the face, pull it, placing it from ourselves. Holding the tape in one hand, we put a needle on it and with the tip of the needle we perform a turn with tape. Hold the tape, bring the tip of the needle to the base next to the exit, take the needle inside out. Tighten the remaining tape inside out untilnodule formation. When doing a French nodule, make sure that the ribbon (thread) does not wrap around the needle too tightly. The threads must be slightly free, so that the needle eye can pass. That's all!
