To do this, a small amount of paint should be collected on the instrument and then, using a finger on the bristle, they are sprayed on the substrate. Further, an additionaldecoration.

Initially, you need to processcomputer printout. In order to fix the paints, it is necessary to apply a layer of varnish-acrylic, then - to dry our printout. Then, you need to take a glass and with the help of a circle, outline the necessary area where we will work on the drawing. First, we process the computer printout. To fix the paints, apply a thin layer of acrylic lacquer or watercolor fixative, leave to dry. Then, you need to take a glass and chart with the help of a circle of glass the necessary area on which our picture will be marked. Then, the target area is painted with acrylic paint in the form of white shades, or the like. After, the product must be drained. This is to ensure that the printout in the future does not shine through the picture of the wooden cover. Then, you need to take a printout and cut off what will be superfluous. This action is performed together with the ball for greater convenience. Drawing for the ball Then, the glue is applied to the balloon, whichhelp to fix the picture. We attach our graphic artwork to the central area of the ball and produce a cut with scissors of the notches. We get the shape of the sun. You should avoid places that are of particular importance for the integrity of the drawing. Then, a second layer of adhesive is applied to the printout itself. Using a brush, the glue is smeared from the center of the product, to its edges. Then, excess adhesive residues should be removed with a napkin. Then, the product is left to a full drying process. Let's deal with three-dimensional elements thatWe have to put on the very side of the ball, in the opposite direction. To do this, take a stencil, as well as shpaklevku. Then, we make a painting and remove the stencil, we make the puttying. Continuing our work with a graphic image. We need to take a nest, or a sawtooth, to gently cut the folds that formed at the edges of the printout of the drawing. It will form a smooth surface, where there will be no wrinkles, or transitions in a rough form. After, we draw the drawing. We use a sheet of paper to extrude different colors of acrylic paints. We need to choose the shades that are already present on our printout. Then, we use the process of mixing the color elements to achieve the necessary shades of the picture. A paint brush can be applied. Sponge or finger is also suitable for this action. The final elements of the ball decor After that,as the drawing is completed, you need to wait for the drying of the products. After that, we paint the remains of the ball with acrylic paint from the color of the bones of the elephant. Dry the product. Then, you need to age the look of the ball. To do this, you need to make a mixture of paint and water. Our ball needs a brown color. Divorced paint is applied to elements that are voluminous. Excess paint is removed with a napkin. Further, the paint remains only in the elements of the depressions. The top of the elements is erased. Then, select the picture and give it the effect of antiquity. After, drain the product again. A wooden product, as a rule, has a small hole for suspension. Therefore, it is required to take the wire in a thin form and to pass through our hole. Then, pull out the wire and make a tape on the loop. The next step is to cover the ball with a special glossy varnish for three times. The interval for drying the varnish in the parameter for one hour. Then, we need to glue the pearls using a sticky compound, or apply the pearls in liquid form. Then, you need to glue the lace and so our ball will be finished!
