Craft Decoration


I want to show you a vase made of paper-mache.Eto my first creation, and made it decorate my interior. The height of the vase 60cm, 25cm in diameter. I really wanted to bring to china, but no skill. Natural color, I could not take pictures.

This is the upper part of the vase, a closer look. Very bright sun.

The lower part of the vase.

Now I will describe how and what I had created these things.
She took to form, old, heavy, glass cover,  plates for cap and base. Mold release Vaseline (bought at the pharmacy) and with enthusiasm, the number of newspapers, by preparing the PVA and water. The result you see. Why did the 16 layers, with a good drying? Cut in half, remove and stick together.

This is the vase is assembled and glued on the glue, the photo below. Saturate for wood surfaces (like).

Clay also liked the work. It is not well aligned stiffened finger wet, rinse with water. Freezes, it becomes like a plastic.

This varnish – impregnation.

Further.  such scallops, place to hide glue.

Inflicted circuit construction putty, a plastic bottle from, other convenient inventory I have not found. Dry and began to glue PVA laid, richly flavored with glue.

When the work was done and allowed to dry, it’s time to close up and smooth out the bumps of the remaining newspapers stickers, putty. As I was able to and did prime. Again covered with acrylic lacquer in 2sloya. I use elastic.

Start elements with ruffled. I paint the color of milk chocolate.

Top paced lighter, peach. Varnish PF-283. Dry to touch and finger struck bronze powder on top. When dry paint, again covered by it, in order to bronze has not lost its color and not oxidized. Acrylic nail this powder, not a friend.

That just happened. Then the colored spheres to the main color, light cream. Craquelure caused 739-740. And here I was waiting for a problem that had to be overcome with firmness. Craquelure on all four areas will get different, from small to large. Although the thickness of the coating and time controlled precisely. Also on the upper sphere, did not lay down the second layer as expected and formed cavities. After grouting it all got out. Guard!!!
I had to redo it. Saved vegetable oil and sticky layer I safely removed, however, it does not require much time, oil washed “Ferry”, degrease and struck again craquelure.

The work was saved but turned craquelure.

It dealt with the use of special equipment portal on the contour of the filler.

Nalepa from cold porcelain flowers, leaves, ribbons.

And it took embellishment as the mind. Glued inlay on the gel “Moment”.  acrylic lacquer.

Picture quality is not, but the point to catch possible.
To fill the void between the flowers and leaves smoothed edges with glue “Titan”. just sorry – 3D Nail. After much experimentation with adhesives and sealants, “Titan” was the hardest when drying !!! All other sealants, including the “moment” mobile and flexible.

Bows and glued loop “Decola” on glass and ceramics, by hand, caused a small.

Well, that’s enough. Now varnishing.

So far, only covered with five layers of acrylic gloss varnish, but this is not the limit. Lacquered continues!

Here in this photo, the color is closer to get.
