Step-by-step master class on creating a decoupage for candles for the New Year.
Decoupage candles, probably one of the mostinteresting processes of pre-New Year preparations. It is not complicated by technology. The time runs quickly. The very creative process is very exciting. But there are some tricks. Napkin on the candle is not glued with decoupage glue or simple glue PVA, for this there are special means. But you need to know what and buy them. And there are hot ways to decuppose a candle - using a hair dryer or a spoon, heated on a candle. I prefer to work with a spoon, and in this master class I want to share how to do it. To decouple the candle, I took:
- wide in diameter candle, sold in the IKEA store,
- New Year's paper napkins three-layer,
- a small candle and a stand for it,
- a tablespoon.
For a start, I decided on the drawings that I willimplant. It would be possible to take a fragment that would completely embrace the candle, but I wanted to make a collage. For the bottom part of the whole diameter of the candle, I took a fragment with fir paws, and for the upper part - drawings with Santa Claus. Has removed the top layer at napkins. I lit a candle and heated a spoon from the inside. Then, the outer side of the spoon was inserted into the candle with circular motions with a slight pressure. Paraffin melted and penetrated through a thin napkin. In the upper part of the candle, the rest of the fragments were inserted in the same way. In the intervals between the pictures with Santa Claus added snowflakes. In the course of the work I realized that I would like to add morecolored dots along the edge of the candle. For this, she took the metallic acrylic paints and a thin stick (can be replaced by contours). The upper part of the candle around the wick was decorated with dots. Also added color points around other fragments. The candle turned out beautiful and festive. But the candle remains a candle and at the same time flammable, do not forget about it. When you use, do not forget about fire safety. I wish you success!
