Good day! Today I’ll show you how to make such an unusual postcard here.
Take a sheet of paper for watercolor, its rough side is ideal for simulating the metal surface.
Draw a sketch. In the photo at the windows there are corners of the roof, but later we srezh them.
Cut part of the workpiece, leaving half intact. Just cut out of plain paper curls and drag them to the watercolor, it is necessary that all the elements were identical. Long strips on the photo – the future eaves lantern.
Billets and scrollwork moldings folded in half and glue PVA, put under the press.
The blank cards add up, draw frames and ornament.
Cut windows and ornamentation, pay attention – the roof cut off, too, because it was too small)) … Then we form the fold.
With a bent shape of the flashlight to the securities is determined by the size and shape.
Draw back wall of postcards and lantern. Such their location made for reasons of economy.
Make the corners of the roof. You can certainly make them from a sheet, but then lost the texture of the work.
Getting to the creation of “glasses”. Take the tracing paper and wrapping with a sponge paint it in red and yellow tones, under the light of lights. At this stage you need to be extremely careful, because Wet tracing very easily torn.
Now we proceed to the coloring of parts of the lantern.
Do not forget about vnutennie surface. They cut out one more detail (on the left in the photo).
Now we need to paint or metallic effect marker.
Lightly attach to the surfaces of the similarity to the metal.
On the dried “slides” draws the border.
For the strength of the back (on the side of the NOT,) paste the scotch.
Another plus – after gluing adhesive tape wrinkles on the surface of the tracing paper are fixed and are very expressive …
Cut the workpiece. On the sides we add 3-4 mm.
Prepare the windows:
Glue to the tracing framework (the side with the tape inside).
In places the insertion slots do curls.
Insert curls …
Glue inside tails curl.
Full curl is simply glued to the end, although it is possible to make the slot for it.
As a result, we get this:
Making lower oranament forging gluing a strip curls:
Make a slit in the bottom of:
Insert tails and glue them inside.
Applies the bottom of a lower ledge to the future, mark the corners of the cuts:
… Cut …
… Sginaem edges eave and mark the corners, cut off the excess,
Glue to the bottom of the ledge, then all glued to the flashlight.
By the same principle we do the top ledge.
Glue the roof of our flashlight.
The photo shows what we did three different sides, and not bent out of a single sheet …
Next, we need black bead and metal ring
(I just painted his black nail polish) and wicker thread.
Firmly (but not too tight) bind the middle thread to the ring …
Vdevaem to thread beads, doing a triple knot:
At the end of the thread to make major node and paste it into the top corner of his flashlight, better superglue.
We continue to collect our card. Adhered to the inner wall of the base (on which all have to be written), and the corner decoration “loops”.
Try to stick perfectly straight,
Edges toning dried up sponge with black paint.
By the way, it’s time to check if there were any white gaps, for example at the ends of the pages,
and paint over everything carefully.
Now, in order to not disclosed card itself, making a sort of hook-lock. Take the braided thread (their twisted itself out of 5 strands folded in half) with a ponytail and a disc of black plastic. In the center he glued a smaller disk.
You can pick up and sew a button, but to me it seemed too banal.
Threads super-adhesive glue in between the curl and the upper cornice ..
A disk with the reverse side walls flashlight.
Threads simply throw on the “hook” and the card will be locked.
(By the way here in the photo can be seen as he was commanded my card
That’s all. We hang our torch postcard on the wall!
