How to make bright terry flower from leather
You will need:
the soft leather of medium thickness 04-0,8 mm;
the pin-brooches basis for a width of 3-4 cm;
blue flower stamens;
1. From the pieces of leather, first select and set aside for gluing the biggest and beaters. Of the remaining scraps cut by 8 petals 5 sizes (A-D). First, I recommend starting with the cutting of large petals (size L). Small petals then it is easier to fit in the remaining space between the large petals.
Templates petals and beaters for the midway are life-size.
2-3. Now leather petals need to be treated with a solution of white glue to give them rigidity and a more natural appearance.
To prepare the adhesive solution diluted with water in the recommended ratio of 1: 2 or 1: 3. I’m doing this “by eye”: when the ends with glue bottle – easy to pour some water and stir. It is necessary to obtain a translucent solution that is when the skin promazyvanii leaves no white marks on it. This method is convenient because it is not necessary each time to spend in the preparation of adhesive certain portion – solution for long enough and it does not spoil.
The degree of treatment depends on the type of skin: if the front side has a glossy finish, the petals can be soaked in the solution, and then put on the cloth up bahtarmu giving to drain excess moisture.
4. On a more delicate skin types after drying remain divorces, so the solution to lubricate the parts must be only from the inside. I like to do it with your finger rather than a brush – so I feel a better degree of wetting. After that, immediately wipe the surface of the table with a cloth, to prevent moisture from reaching the front side of the part.
5-6. Having greased petal, just fold it in half and twist.
7-10. Twisted leave workpiece in this position for some time (about 10-20 minutes -. It depends on the type and thickness of the skin, the extent of wetting), and then unwind. In this case, the pitch is already deformed, acquired curves, sharp contours reinstall your slices. To give a more natural look each petal put on a smooth surface, and gather your fingers along his accordion. In this position, leave until completely dry.
11. These lobes have to stick to a rigid foundation – a cardboard circle with a diameter of 4 cm (I like to use round cardboard game pieces).
12-13. First glue the petals of the 1st row.
14-15. On the same level glue petals 2nd row, placing them in a checkerboard pattern. Petals of the following series of glue, a little shifting their base to the middle, the flower, and they should be slightly raised.
16. The petals of the corolla are also treated with a solution of PVA, twist the ends of the fingers and roll the bud. After drying Glue one beaters each other in order of increasing size.
17. The beam stamens tie thin wire in half and fold the circle (stems I had previously painted a permanent marker). In the middle of a flower drip glue and paste it to the stamens, pressing their center tool for some time for better fixation.
18-19. Now again, drip glue in the middle of a flower bud and paste it back, push it with your fingers, give form.
20-22. It remains to make the buckle: leather pasting cut 1 cm larger in diameter than a circle of cardboard (5 cm). I took the lid from baby food and carved scalloped scissors.
23-25. Now mark the location for fasteners, punch a hole for her (left – 5 mm, right – 3 mm) and insert the pin.
26-27. Pasting brush with PVA glue – first dot, and then awl ryastyanite glue from the center to the edges, well their promazyvaya.
28-30. Pasting glue with a pin in the appropriate place, closing the cardboard circle. Done! One day you can wear or give!
31. The petals can be cut out of a number of skin tones.
32-33 . Using the proposed pattern of petals, you can make a flower out of a dense or thick skin, as an accessory to the bag or shoes. These Circuits Do not expose the adhesive solution treatment, as the skin is thick and difficult to deform. And to the edge of the petals look neat, they can be lightly fried in a dry frying pan clean. At the same time slices slightly tucked inside, and the pitch will get a small amount (but you need to pre-experiment for each skin).
I wish you pleasant emotions and inspiration!
