Decoupage a bottle of champagne do-it-yourself
More recently, in Russia, people began to relax in the New Year holidays with the whole family. Not only schoolchildren and students, but also the working population has the opportunity to visit relatives, take a walk, play sports and devote time to their favorite hobby. Decoration of interior items in the technique of decoupage is gaining increasing popularity among the fair sex. Decorate in this way you can not only chopping boards, photo frames and other small things, but also bottles, for example, with champagne. These works will decorate the table, refresh it, make it special. Even if the whole year you didn’t have time to master the new technique of creativity, you can do it just on New Year’s Eve. In this master class we’ll consider the technique of direct decoupage from a file, while drawing a picture around the bottle overlaying edge to edge. When you design directly with a napkin, champagne will stand, and not lie on its side,as when gluing a small motive. Here it will be useful to designate terms used by the masters of this technique. The motive is called a drawing from a napkin or a decoupage card that will be located on the surface. Soil is an acrylic paint or a mixture of paint with PVA glue, which is applied to the glass with the first and second layer. For decoupage usually use PVA glue, slightly diluted with water. It is also important to remember that when wet, the size of the napkin increases by approximately 0.5 cm on each side, which is very noticeable if you first apply a dry napkin to the surface to determine the boundaries where the motive will fall.As in the case of remaking the old Oh furniture, before applying the coating of any type you need to remove the old decorative layers. When decorating a bottle, these are labels and excise stamps. First, I soak the glass in water, then remove the label with a brush.The remains of paper and glue can easily be removed with the help of vegetable oil and sandpaper, vigorously rubbing the bottle.Choose a napkin in advance.
Materials and toolsAlways at hand at the skilled worker should have toothpicks, cotton swabs, sheets of paper or newspaper, cotton wool. This is all found in every home. Pay attention to the reasonable design of the workplace, to protect hands, face (especially eyes) from the effects of varnishes and paints. Therefore, it is good to buy gloves, masks, etc. In addition to the above, prepare:
- acrylic paints: white and nacreous;
- brushes as usual for watercolors;
- sponge sponge or piece of dry sponge for washing dishes,
- acrylic lacquer;
- fine sandpaper;
- acrylic filler for decorative works;
- napkins suitable subjects, I took the New Year;
- sprigs of an artificial Christmas tree, real cones;
- foam balls for artificial snow;
- PVA glue for paper and cardboard or construction;
- stationery file, better dense.
Getting StartedGet good quality champagne.
Before you begin to prime the glass, degrease it with a window agent or alcohol. Add PVA glue and prigot to the paint ove foam sponge.Apply a primer to the surface with small dot movements.Two or three layers enough Allow the bottle to dry or dry thoroughly with a blower on all sides. Now take the fine sandpaper and sand the surface.In the process of grinding you will understand that until the end of the grain not cleaned. In order to prepare the surface for a decoupage from a file,take the acrylate filler.
DecoupageThe easiest way of decoupage for beginners is decoupage from a file. I chose a motif with the image of Christmas balls, cinnamon, fir branches.The picture does not end in a quarter of the napkin, as usual, but lies in half, as shown in the picture.
Next, you need to put on the glue one edge of the napkin and slowly separate it from the file. If necessary, spread it out with a wide brush with water, but it’s better to stick it straight on right away.
