Many, as often happens, have a homethere is an old chair, nobody's necessary and life-worn. It should be thrown away, and then - and completely forgotten. But in fact, things are not so simple. There are many reasons. Someone just feels sorry for the old, sometimes family thing. Someone is guided by economical questions and does not expect to make a purchase of a new chair, when the old one is practically not suitable. In general, there are a lot of options for which there can be a problem with chairs. And there is a solution to this problem.
Decoupage of the old chair into a new one with your own hands - the technique of decoupage
Decoupage chair - a common methodmodification and improvement of old furniture. Using the paints and primer, as well as special pictures - your chair can be improved. Starting from simple stylistic improvements, before changing the cover and then applying the pattern. But, even the best and most complex work should begin with the basics. That is why this master class is designed to tell you about the simple and easy decoupage technique, designed to facilitate and simplify the process of working with a chair and its improvement. We will use several decoration techniques, as well as special lessons, on the basis of which we will work:
- A set of liquids for degreasing (alcohol)
- Also, you need to take a paper-nazhdachku
- Primer for wood, for cardboard
- Napkin decoupage
- Paint, acrylic
- Lacquer for decoupage, or for a hard surface
Work on the product may be different. Someone prefers to remove the old paint. Someone considers this undertaking unnecessary. In our case - you can not take pictures. But, the product must be completely processed. We use our degreasing tools and process the surface of our chair with liquids. We ground each irregularity with the sandpaper. Cracked stools should also be treated with special tools. Each mount must be in place and clearly fulfill its purpose. The cleaned surface should be primed whenhelp primer paint and, of course, water. Unevenness and chips should be leveled using a primer with a smooth surface. After the primer dries, you should work the entire product with sanding. In turn, the product is also worked through with a cloth for the presence of various dusts. Layers of the primer should be applied a few, in intervals to sand the space of the chair and wait until the paint will have its original, quality look for the chair. Beautiful and new chair Then, on the surface of the primer, we apply the paintfrom acrylic. You should choose the right shade for the chair, so that the paint is combined with the room and expressed enough inside the room. Paint is applied with the help of two tools - either sponge, or using a brush. Some prefer to use a spray gun. After the paint dries, we work on the most important part - decoupage products. Decoupage consists of napkins, which we must cut. In our case - it will be floral motifs, from which we will make beautiful and interesting compositions on the chair. For such an action can also come and decoupage cards, on which the drawings are more thoughtful, and the cards themselves - are prepared for the decoupage process and leave no traces. Making up a chair For the decoupage card, it is necessary to apply glueon the reverse side of the picture, which we cut out, after that, we apply the pattern on the surface using our composition scheme. The pattern must be smoothed using a brush that has been treated with glue and water. Then, leave the product to dry. With a napkin the process is similar, but you need to separate all the layers except the top. We attach it to the surface, which was painted and we are applying our lacquer solution with glue above the product. Such glue is made with the help of acrylic impurities, as a result of which - the napkin does not wrinkle. The edges should be treated with paint so that they do not turn yellow. Decoration After, it is necessary to apply to the producta paint of gold color. To do this, use the method of a dry brush. You need to take a rough brush and put on the palette paint in gold. It must be spread over the palette with a dry brush, so that there is very little paint on the soap brush. Then, with the help of tangent type movements, we paint the surface, highlighting the parts that protrude. Each edge and leg, the edge of the seat is machined. Then, the product dries. After the paint is dried, the chair needs to be covered with a special varnish for furniture. Also, we will use a strong varnish.
