For decoration, we will use a plastic plate of square shape with the size 235x235x17 mm.
For work you will also need:
napkin with a pattern,
– egg shell,
– white acrylic paint,
– glue PVA,
– brushes for glue and paints,
– painter’s scotch,
The edges of the plate will be decorated with eggshells with subsequent staining, we will decorate the middle of the plate with a napkin with a beautiful pattern of apples.
So, wash my plate and dry it. Then apply glue on a small area
And begin to glue the pieces of shell. Press the end of the brush to break the shell into small parts.
Gradually we cover the entire perimeter of the plate with the shell.
Let the glue dry well and paint the plate with a sponge with white paint
Carefully paint all the spaces between the shell and again dry the plate.
On the painting tape, we circle the patterns of leaves.
Cut them one by one and immediately glue on the plate, alternating between small and large.
To pick up the color of the paint, carefully look at the fragment of the napkin.
Mix white acrylic paint with gouache (ocher), achieve the desired shade.
Gently sponge the paint on the shell.
With a damp brush or sponge, we slightly pass between the leaves to slightly lighten some areas.
Remove the adhesive tape. Some of the leaves are covered with paint. This can be corrected with white paint.
Add some other to the original color and circle the leaves along the contour with a fairly wide strip, draw the veins.
With a fine brush, we pass gouache on the contour of leaves and veins.
We have a napkin in the middle of the plate and apply a strip of glue.
Carefully smear the glue in both directions, trying not to tear the napkin.
Dry the plate well, then cover the entire surface with PVA glue.
After 2-3 hours of drying, the plate will become glossy.
The plate is ready, we are looking for a place on the shelf.
