Decoupage chair with the use of pigment paints and a detailed master class
Many people at home or somewhere in the country havefurniture, which looks no longer beautiful enough, because of scuffs and age wear. It does not always happen that you can afford to buy new, practical and sufficiently strong furniture where you do not go often enough. There are several reasons why you do not need to change old furniture to a new one. After all, during the Soviet Union, furniture made a fairly strong and wear-resistant to weather conditions and the method of use. And using new methods of decoupage in the style of Provence or in any other, your furniture will serve you for many years to come. Well, let's quickly figure out how to give the old furniture a second chance! To work on the design of furniture, we need: 1. Chair (check its condition beforehand if you need to twist or fix it because decorating a chair that has not been left to live very long, it makes no sense) 2. Paint (it's better to take something bright and tender for color, and most importantly do not take the cheapest, as the color of furniture will depend on your positive emotions after the end of decoupage) 3. Colorless varnish, primer (this item can be skipped, if your budget is limited) 4. Sandpaper 5. Brush or sponge for washing dishes 6. Paper with a picture 7. Glue PVA If you are all ready to start decoupage, then it's time to start. First of all, we need to sand the surface of the chair, so that it is smooth and there are no hooks, scrapes, primordial lacquer coating, or paint. To perform the work was at the highestlevel, the first layer of the cover of the chair, after carefully made sanding, there should be a primer coating. It is this foundation that will keep on itself all the subsequent layers of paint, drawings and will not allow them to be exposed to various properties of the tree. After the soil dries, you should be wellsand the surface of the stool and all small primed parts, cavities or hard-to-reach places. The thickness of the emery paper should be about 1500-2000. After the done sanding, think, would you like to have on the chair were pasted some pictures or you will paint them with colors. If decoupage will be from existing blanks, then using a brush or sponge to apply glue, diluting it with water one to one. Attach the picture to the desired place on the chair and very gently along the edge of the picture, start sticking it. Remember that depending on the thickness of the paper, the degree of its blotting will be different. And accordingly, the consumption of glue will also be different. In the situation, determine the degree of blotting of the paper, and in accordance with it, apply the necessary amount of glue, smoothing the folds. Give the pattern a good dry out in the fresh air, in case of glue drips, wipe them and with a cloth. After, the intervals between the drawings can be painted overpre-selected by you paint. Using a brush or a sponge, gently apply the paint, of course, beforehand changing and putting under the chair a newspaper or some unnecessary sheet, because there is a possibility that you can stain the surface on which you will paint. The paint of which will be painted stool can be used as a budget, water-based, and varnish. But from personal experience, the use of paint and varnish alone, gives the furniture an expensive and more refined appearance. And if you use drawings on paper basis as decoupage, then you can not do without varnish. Because of it, the wear resistance of paper parts will be minimal. After staining the stool with paint in intermediate places, between the drawings, allow it to dry out and after completely drying, sand and apply a second coat of paint. When the paint is completely dry, you can apply one or more layers of varnish on top of it. This kind of decoupage is one of the mosthigh-quality and inexpensive. After all, the price for such furniture at various exhibitions or furniture stores, can reach fabulous sizes. Doing this kind of decoupage is best performed in the summer season, because the paintwork materials are best frozen at a high plus temperature. Do not forget the small parasites that like to stick to freshly painted surfaces. Look at them and if necessary, rotate the product, starting from the position of the sun.
