Hello! Good day to all! Important role in the design plays her embroidery frame. Very nice look embroidered miniatures in round and oval frames made of wood, but in art galleries and specialty stores, they are as cast-iron bridge. I suggest to replace them with a plate made of papier-mache.
Embroidery we have already done, stretched over a frame, and now make a blank paper.
For work, we need: a plate of ceramic or glass, wallpaper paste, food film, paper, putty, paint, acrylic, construction, sandpaper, scissors, pencil, rubber spatula, brush flat synthetic and a burning desire to do something with their hands.
Dilute a teaspoon of wallpaper paste in water until it swells, wrapped in a thin plate of plastic wrap so that it is completely repeated plate profile. We begin to stick pieces of paper. To a plate turned flat, durable and lightweight at the same time, I use the kraft paper.
The ends of the strips of paper looking for some of the edges of the plates to dry when workpiece is not “led”.
It is important to do a break after each layer. It should dry well, because the remaining moisture may not completely come out, and then the plate then exfoliate. Layer good smooths dipped in glue finger, expelling air bubbles. To avoid confusion when calculating the layers (there must be at least 10), I add to the work of ordinary sheets of notebook.
By the way, kraft paper, I do not buy. She packed dishes and some household goods. Several large sheets left in me after the replacement of furniture in the kitchen.
When all the layers have been applied, dry thoroughly, you will cause the cutoff line. For this article we lay another plate, which encircle the edge of a pencil.
Overturn plate, dissecting scissors, curved frame.
Remove the workpiece from the plate. Thanks to the food film is easy to do.
The edge of evenly cut with scissors.
That looks so ugly cut.
From all sides.
Fix it, papered with its small, narrow strips of paper.
Small rubber spatula putty is applied a layer construction.
After drying the skins sandpaper. If you need to repeat the process. Gruntuem construction of acrylic paint.
If we use a plate for embroidery, which closes the bottom, it does not need much smoothing. Do not waste your time.
But the edge we need to simulate the perfect porcelain!
Left plate made of newspaper.
On it we make a simulation of coinage or stone surface.
Look at a few options framework of papier-mâché trays after decorating.
At this point I did not say goodbye to you for a long time. The next time we will do decoupage on our preparation, decorating it.
Thanks to everyone who came to the light! Good luck in the works, dear mistress!
Always glad to you!
