What exactly will help us make a good giftfor a loved one and what role will the technique play in that, which will be discussed? Undoubtedly, the main source of opportunities for any craftsman is a set of materials. In this case, you may need a set of necessary materials that are easy to find right at home. In addition, such a gift will never be forgotten by a close person, he will use it for many years. In this article we will try to speculate andtry a method of creating a gift for a loved one. The method will be based on the popular technique of decoupage, as well as the opportunities that it carries within itself. It should be noted immediately that this technique makes it possible to decorate a wide variety of objects and our example is not unique. But, closer to the point! Of course, for a loved one you need to arrange ita thing that will remind you of the past holiday and, as a rule, will become necessary. It's about a regular cup that you can buy at any store. But, not everyone can make their own design and uniquely arrange such a cup. It is for these reasons, to look at the issues of decoupage, from a new angle. This technique will prove useful to those who are just beginning their procession in the world of needlework and do not yet have sufficient knowledge. How to work on a cup? So, let's get to work. Do you know that decoupage of a glass surface, or a cup, is simply impossible in the form in which we are accustomed to seeing it? Yes, decoupage of such a cup can not be made by the priming method. That's why, we will cut out our drawings and patterns from napkins and fasten them to a cup. For this, you need to cut out the motif and then, separate the necessary motif, which will need to be glued. Using a special method, it is necessary to separate the paper layer and paste the white layer using the usual method, without using the image. Now, wait until the moment our glue dries. Also, you can speed up the process by using the hair dryer. Next, we must paint the element with white paint. But, best of all, do not paint until the very edges, so that when applied, the napkin could stretch out a little. There are also decoupage cards, which can be used to paste the desired pattern on the product. Decoupage cards differ from their smaller onesbrothers - napkins, a more strict form, clear lines and the ability to recreate various compositions on products. At the same time, working with a decoupage card is much easier. But, if you do not have the opportunity to buy a decoupage card - it's okay, with a regular napkin should also work. By the way, do not forget that the motif of your napkin should be within the framework of the event, tobish, a new year or Christmas. White contour of deer, Santa Claus or Santa Claus is the most successful solution to this problem. After the paint dries, we can produce our actions by gluing the colored layer of the napkin, on our decoupage element. If somehow the paint began to protrude from the boundaries of our product, you need to cut off this element using a clerical knife. But, you need to prune, and not clean, as the paint from acrylic drying up, forms a single-piece film. Preparing the decor for a cup When your motives are ready, you will have to tackle the most fascinating part - the cup decor. Pictures need to be tinted, for this we will use the paint. Also, we will select the necessary varnish. The car version of the varnish with spray - will be the best option. But, we also protect the distance along the edges of the product, so that the lips do not touch harmful substances. To do this, we use a mounting type scotch tape. Further, with the help of acrylic paints, we cover the layer of varnish. If you use a stained-glass version of paints - you can refuse from varnish. Thus, it is possible to form a very convenient andA beautiful element of graphics that will be on a cup for a loved one. He can drink his favorite drink from a beautiful mug and at the same time remember about the one who gave him this item. Do not forget that with the help of various variants of baubles, contours and other elements, you can add ornaments inside the product.
