While grandson grows, we often use children'sfood, after which there are banks. In order not to throw them away like household rubbish, I took up the creative process and, with the help of technology, decoupage learned to turn into exclusive gizmos. In this master class I will tell you how to turn a tinless waste jar into a repository of pens, pencils or household trivia. The idea is sure to appeal to many, and you will burn such interior utensils to yourself, friends, including children. Moreover, napkins with children's drawings are available in the range in every house where the baby is growing up.
Materials and tools
For decoupage I needed:
- Bank of the baby food of any size.
- Alcoholic napkin.
- White and colored acrylic paints.
- Glue (PVA "Optilux").
- Pulverizer with water, file.
- Sponge foam rubber and clamp.
- Copy paper.
- Paper napkins.
- Relief paste, palette knife or spatula for paste application.
- Acrylic lacquer.
First, I thoroughly sanded the metal surface to make it as smooth as possible, suitable for work in the technique of decoupage. Then she wiped the surface of the jar from the baby food with an alcoholic napkin. Now you need to prime all the white paintthe surface to begin with a thin layer, dried and painted again for a more even and dense layer. It is necessary that the dishes become uniformly colored. The inscription did not shine on the appointment of the bank. If the painted base remains, the work will be unaesthetic. As soon as the paint dried, I began to preparenapkins. Separated the layers of the napkin from each other, since a napkin with a pattern is usually triple. The layer with the picture was put on the file by the back side and moistened with water. Together with the file, the napkin fragment, where the picture you liked, was attached to the surface of the jar and pressed firmly, so that the drawing was transferred to the metal surface of the dishes. As soon as the napkin was snug against the surface, the file was taken almost parallel to the bank. This action must be done very carefully, so as not to pull the delicate sheet of a thin napkin. Missed the entire surface with glue and allowed to dry well. I fixed the fragment with varnish, that is, I applied a layerof this substance. The varnish is applied thinly, evenly. It is necessary to wait some time to evaporate it from the surface. Brought under the sun in a warm place and again dried well. Decided the rest of the fragments to give volume. To do this, I first transferred the drawing to the surface via a carbon stick. On the circled pattern, a relief paste was applied. The paste dries a long time. Has given time to dry out well. This may take all night, so the next stage will have to be done only in the morning. A fragment of the picture that circled earlier, pasted on the bulk surface of the relief paste. So it turned out an interesting convex, even relief, element. In the morning at the last stage of the work, I pasted small fragments, which are necessary for the decoration of the entire surface of the can. What is visible, or rather, whitens, you must also fill with a drawing, but already man-made. I drew a general background. At the final stage, you need to cover the whole jar with varnish and give time to dry it. After 2-3 hours, an exclusive jar for storing things is ready to please the household.
