The most popular decoration for the Christmas treeis a ball. In modern shops they are offered so much choice that their eyes involuntarily run out. You can find balls of different sizes and colors. But a truly original and beautiful Christmas decoration of the Christmas tree can be done only with your own hands. It is hand made crafts in the form of Christmas tree balls create the right atmosphere of the holiday and emphasize the taste of the needlewoman. In this article we offer you two master classes for making New Year balls in decoupage technique. Although the technique of applique from paper pictures was born almost 9 centuries ago in China, the term appeared only in the twentieth century. The word itself is of French origin, "découpage" is translated as "carving". As the pictures for the application, color napkins are very popular. The term "napkin technique" has recently become synonymous with decoupage. It is the napkins with angels that will be used to create New Year balls in our master classes. Decoupage of Christmas balls with Christmas angels Option 1 It will take:
- Christmas ball of plastic.
- Three-layer napkin with angels.
- Acrylic paint is white and gold.
- Brushes (flat and wide, flat and thin synthetic).
- A piece of foam rubber sponge (you can take a kitchen sponge).
- Adhesive for decoupage.
- Cotton thread for knitting (as for the hook 0,7).
- PVA glue.
- Acrylic lacquer (glossy).
- Tape from organza (gold).
- Thread from Lurex (gold).
- Sequins (gold) with glitter glue.
A Christmas ball can be taken in absolutely any color. Before you start decorating, you need to pull out the mount. Carefully cover the whole surface of the toy with a primer and let it dry. Then we take the white acrylic paint and apply it to the ball with the help of a foam rubber piece. In total we need 3 layers. Apply them only after the previous one has dried completely. The surface of the ball should be smooth, so after the third layer of paint dries, sandstone. All the dust formed during the processing must be removed, for this you can use the white layers of the napkin, from which we separate the upper color. From it we carve angels. With the help of glue for decoupage, attach the fragments to the ball. First, glue the center of the picture, and then gently smooth it to the edges. While the pictures dry up, we paint with a piece of foam rubbergold paint ball attachment. Now the golden detail dries, and we continue to decorate the ball. Cotton thread must be cut into pieces about 10-13 cm in length (the final size of the segments will depend on the size of your ball). It is necessary to wet these strings with water, and then cover with PVA glue. The easiest way to do this is with your fingers, but you can use a brush or another piece of foam rubber. These threads we spread with various curls on the surface of the ball where there is space free from pictures. Correct all irregularities with a thin flat brush dipped in water. These patterns dry quickly enough, so they can be painted with sequins almost immediately, using glitter glue. Now you need to cover the whole ball with acrylic glossy varnish in two layers. We put back the fastener and tie it from the golden organza of the bow. It turned out to be such a charming ball with angels. Option 2 Advice! It is not necessary for such crafts to use new Christmas toys. Perhaps in the box on the far shelf in the pantry are old toys that have lost their sides or shed their color. Such balls can be given a new life, using them as a basis for crafts. It will take:
- Christmas ball.
- Beautiful napkin with angels.
- Fine nazhdachka.
- Glue for decoupage.
- Acrylic paint (white, gold and silver).
- Gold outline.
- A piece of foam rubber.
- 3D varnish.
- Glitter glitter with gold sparkles.
- Acrylic lacquer.
We start the work by clearing the ball of any unevenness and excess paint. Just sand it with fine-grained sandpaper. Fastening pull out. The ball should be covered with a coat of primer. If you are afraid of getting your hands dirty, then you can use a stick for Chinese food as a holder. When the primer has dried, it is necessary to paintblank with white acrylic paint. It takes two layers, and the second is applied only after the first layer dries completely. While the second layer of paint dries, we exfoliate the napkin. From the upper color layer, we pull out the angels. In this master class, we got images similar to the angels of Raphael. Glue on the adhesive for decoupage fragments. Start to glue in the center and smooth to the edges. On top, it is necessary to cover with another layer of glue. Do not allow irregularities or creases. If this happens, use a sponge. Now it is necessary to mix the gold and silveracrylic paints. This mixture is applied to the surface of the ball by means of foam rubber with light patting movements. You should get an unusual glow effect. Now we must leave our balloon for several hours to dry, for example, for the whole night. When all has dried up, we take a gold outline and draw the curls of an angel. To make the curls turn out to be three-dimensional, we use a dotted 3D varnish. Glitter with gold sequins draw patterns on the surface of the ball. The final touch - we cover the ball with glossy acrylic lacquer. Now it remains only to insert the fastening back, and the ball is ready.
