For each needlewoman, the threshold of the New Year -it's time when you want to create something new and unusual by yourself. The coming year 2016 is also no exception. We offer a couple of interesting crafts that will become a wonderful Christmas decoration and create the appropriate mood. What kind of materials do we not use whenmaking jewelry for the New Year. From crepe paper creates hoarfrost and bright chains, silver and golden colors help to turn natural fir or pine cones into fairy-tale ornaments, tinsel is placed literally on every free section of the wall or furniture. The interior of the house turns into a jewel sparkling with all the colors of the rainbow. Naturally, for each member of the family, the preparation for the feast takes place in its own way. Mom from morning till night spinning at the stove, creating new culinary masterpieces. Papa "conjures" over the installation and decoration of the tree. And the children at this time are watching everything that is happening in anticipation of the New Year's miracle. We offer you a craft made of salted dough, which can be created by the whole family, receiving from it a lot of positive emotions. Surprised? Then tell us in more detail. So, let's start with the preparation of the dough. You will need to take 2 glasses of flour; 1 cup of fine-grained salt; 0.12-0.13 l. water. Note that the water must be necessarily cold. Then you need to dilute the adhesive in the glass for wallpaper and bring its consistency to the type of liquid sour cream. Water with glue is slowly poured into the flour and mixed. It is possible to interfere manually, but it is preferable to use a mixer, which will create a more ductile dough. We also recommend adding 1 tablespoon of cosmetic hand cream, and in case of its absence, vegetable oil. If the dough is salty, then it will become excessively brittle and fragile. We knead it carefully until a uniform consistency is obtained. For each member of the family, select a separate board for the work, where the crafting of the craft will be done. Those who love experiments with bright colors,You can recommend using a multi-colored dough, which is obtained by adding food coloring. There are no restrictions here - we only focus on our imagination. In the process of working on a craft, you can not do without:
- a mixer;
- rolling pins;
- watercolor paints and gouache (or acrylic paints);
- thin brushes;
- special powder for golden and silver toys;
- cutting board;
- toys with a relief pattern;
From the test you created, you can not immediately begin to sculpt,and put it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. There it can easily lie a few days. To make the products dry, it is enough to put them on the battery and wait a day or two. To speed up this process, you can use the oven. In it, set the temperature at 80 degrees, and the drying will take a couple of hours, not a day. The movement of a product that has not dried to the end is extremely undesirable because of the threat of leaving fingerprints on it. Dry the toys should be painted, and when they completely harden, you can proceed to varnishing. To do this, apply a thin layer of liquid lacquer with a brush. If suddenly there is no varnish at hand, the usual hair spray, which will also fix the paint well, is quite appropriate. Another unusual decoration for the New Year 2016called the New Year's photo bullet. It is a snow sphere, which can be made without much effort and effort, and then decorate the interior of your house or give a loved one to the New Year. Of the materials you will only need:
- photo 50х50 mm;
- empty transparent Christmas tree ball;
