You can give fans of Indian cultureThe cover on the passport, issued in the appropriate category. The gift is original, although the work on its manufacture is simple. The technique is similar to, but if using the link we used three-layer napkins with an image or dekupazhnye cards, which by themselves do not require preparation for work, then in this master class we will tell how to transfer the image with surface, originally for decoupage not intended. In this case, instead of napkins, cardboard packaging boxes from under incense sticks will be used. Pictures are bright, colorful - what you need!
So, for the design of a passport cover with your own hands you will need:
cardboard packaging with pictures of incense sticks; white and colored acrylic paints; PVA glue; acrylic lacquer; passport cover.
How to transfer the image to the passport cover with your own hands: description of work
Passport cover take any: even oilcloth, even leatherette - the principle of operation remains the same. If the cover is smooth, before applying the paint on its surface it is necessary to walk well with an emery paper, so it is better to hold the paint. Using a foam sponge, apply white acrylic paint on the front side of the cover in two layers. After drying, the painted part of the skins again, this time - to achieve a more smooth surface under the picture. Cut out the picture a little less than the size of one ofsides of the cover about 0.5 cm. So the edges of the pattern will be less in contact with other objects and will be less rubbed out during operation. Cut the fragment put in a container with water for 15-20 minutes. The time spent by a picture in water is determined by how easily the top film begins to peel off from the cardboard base. Begin to detach the cardboard layer as carefully as possible. After removing the cardboard with your fingers, we roll up the paper layer, which is quite easy to peel off if well soaked. But too much wetting is also not worth it to prevent the image from scattering. The rolling process is stopped when practically one film remains. Wash off any excess with water and lay it flat on the fabric to dry. Next, lubricate the painted part of the cover with white glue. We attach the prepared picture to the front.side of the cover on the passport and using a piece of cloth, smooth it from its center to the edges, expelling extra glue and air from under the film. We postpone work until the glue is completely dry. On the reverse side we paint the acrylic coverpaint, picking up the color in tone with the picture. You can use a brush, but more evenly and without strokes it will turn out to paint any surface with a foam sponge. Apply the paint "promakivayuschim" movements. The inside of the cover is black, so from the front side, along the perimeter and on the fold, we continue this color. Apply the paint with a sponge too. When the paint dries, cover the treatedsurface with acrylic varnish in 5–6 layers. After applying each layer, it is necessary to completely dry the surface (it is convenient to dry on a stretched rope). After all the stages of work we get decorateddo a passport cover with your own hands - and nobody will have that for sure anymore. The theme can be any, the main thing is to choose a colorful picture with a clear image. Thus, for the decoration you can use a postcard or even a photo.
