How to make spot painted jars

How to make spot painted jars

For work we will need:
– oilcloth;
– Paint on glass – black;
– circuits on the glass – gold, bronze, purple, metallic purple, dark red, green, metallic green, metallic purple, light gold, red, bright gold;
– acrylic lacquer;
– Painting tape;
– a white pencil;
– alcohol and cotton wool;
– album sheet;
– a simple pencil;
– scissors;
– foam rubber;
– good mood and desire – is not discussed

We soak the jar in water with any detergent solution to remove the labels. We rub it with alcohol until the squeak. We paste the masking tape with the top of the jar, where the carving is, so that the paint does not accidentally get there.

It will not be exactly straight, but it’s not scary, because everything is leveled by dots. Now take the black paint on the glass. I took Dekal. Foam, apply the paint on the rest of the surface. Do not hurry and “poke” until the “orange peel” disappears.

We put to dry up the bottom.

When it dries, apply the second layer just as gently. In order not to leave the gaps, look inside the jars – so everything is noticeable. We remove the paint tape.

Again leave for a good drying … Dry it. We cover with a varnish on one layer. If the lacquer is thick, a little (not more than 10%!) Dilute with water. We dry very well.

Now determine the pattern. I am marking the edges of the thickenings with dots.

I measure the circumference of a paper strip, cut off excess.

I fold the strip so that I get 6 identical parts – applying this strip, we divide the picture into parts without calculations.

Ruler measure the middle part of the jar – from thickening to thickening. I transfer all these dimensions to paper and sketch the drawing.

So, the varnish has dried up, and you can start drawing the picture on the background. With a white pencil I trace all the lines and carefully put the sheet to the jar, iron it to print, and also carefully remove it. The figure is clearly visible.

Here now begins the most interesting. Painting. For a basis I shall take gold that it was combined with color of a cover – it is good in itself, and consequently I will not touch it.

I take a gold color outline and apply points along the lines of large droplet elements.

Small curls – bronze, and inside the large drops in a checkerboard pattern I go through the points of bright gold (Pebeo).

I leave to dry. After it dries well, I take a cotton swab and erase the pencil markings – it is no longer needed.

Again we pass to the drops. Then I work on the peephole, without marking. If you do not trust yourself, then you can draw a line with a pencil. Inside the big drops, we make smaller drops, but now the outer line of the points is bright gold, and the inner line is gold. The curls inside are either poured or densely punctured by a purple metallic.

When everything is dry, take the purple outline and do the finishing touches. If you do not wait until it dries, you can accidentally touch and damage the gold points – it will be ugly.

Inside, make out big and small dots of green, purple and dark red. Between the curls the remaining space occupies one more point – in the center and two smaller – along the edges, also of a dark red color.

We pass to the marking of thickenings – in the photo above you can see how I noticed the thickening on the jar in the beginning of the work. Here, using this markup, we make gold chains on the whole circle from above and below.

If you do not rely on your eye, then you can make a markup, and I’m by eye – the upper and lower bands divide into triangles. In the triangles I put dots – on the top – violet and green, and from below the petals and dots – in the photo it is visible. From below I use purple and green metallic, dark red and gold.

We can decorate the jar. At the bottoms of the drops we put two gold points, and on both sides of the wide part of the drops there are red dots with two petals (in the photographs below it is visible)

You can go to the bottom. We turn the jar and along the golden chain of points we make a purple (metallic) chessboard and then gold again. Three more of the same series is done directly at the very bottom. The ideal circle can not turn out because of convex bukovok on the jar (I’m from under Cibo)

Now fill the bottom with an arbitrary pattern, and between the triple chains make the purple strokes. Leave to dry.

We had only to decorate the upper edge, where the paint tape was glued. Let’s go too with a purple and gold chain of dots – and the edge will turn out neat and smooth.
Who likes to shine, can glitterom put on 3-5 points on the curls.

After drying, we cover the jar with a protective varnish (if desired). Here’s what happened as a result

The husband has adapted this jar to his coffee, carries it to work).

I hope that somebody will come in handy for a master class. Create with pleasure!

Simple Step By Step Mehndi Design for Hands

Here is a step by step easy mehndi design for hands! If you are a beginner, this simple tutorial might be for you. Here I will show you how to draw mango design using mehndi. Mango is a common design in both Arabic and Indian mehndi. You can easily master this art if you can draw some simple patterns.

Simple Mehndi Design For Hands

Let us start with a mango design. Instead of hands, I have chosen to draw the designs on a white paper(Could not experiment on my own hands). Try to freely draw a pattern as shown in the figure below. Practice several times until you get a perfect mango shape. Inside the mango outline, you can draw any design as you wish. Often the outlines matter! Filling a pattern is quite easy. Believe me, this one is super cool if you are really interested in studying mehndi designing.

Draw lines so that you get a cross of lines inside the mango. Fill the pattern with a chess-like design. Now you will get a design which we usually call as “Indian mehndi design”.

Let us try something different now. Draw the mango outline and try to draw simple floral patterns as shown in the image. These designs are only meant for beginners in this art. Here I have shown some of the basic mehndi designs which help you to draw beautiful Arabic mehndi designs. Try out these designs and patterns today! ?

Hope you like mehndi design for hands.

How to Make a Bouquet Flower Pop-up Card

What a special card! They need a nice detail to give to a person they love a lot or to surprise on their birthday … this idea will love them! I show you step by step how to make this card pop up with a beautiful and colorful bouquet. You will see that doing it is very simple and you can combine the colors you want. Shall we begin? Girls take note because they are going to fall in love with this idea…

Required Materials:

  • Colored papers 10 x 10 cm (7 colors)
  • White paper for card and a design paper
  • Printing Pattern
  • Adhesive in bar or liquid
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Rule
  • Hot glue gun

To make this card I took some papers for origami of 10 x 10 cm that had in a beautiful range of colors. The pattern for printing is prepared based on these measurements. If you are going to use larger paper to get a bigger card, do not forget to enlarge it to print

With the colors ready and the pattern printed and cut we begin to assemble the flowers. Place the paper on the work surface and fold in half diagonally. Then we fold one end towards the other in the middle and to finish we fold the piece obtained in the middle. We repeat the same with all the papers until folding the 7 pieces that we need.

We took the pattern, and with a pencil, we marked it on all the pieces we did in the previous step. We cut and open. We already have the flower but we must cut a petal. We cut it carefully and paste it to close the flower again. We re-fold it and present it in the combination of colors that we want to obtain.

Here I will explain the step by step photo by the photo to make it easier:

We will arrange a color presentation, 2-3-2. The row of 3 flowers will be the center of the bouquet on the card. We will begin to work for the first flower of the central line of 3 flowers (turquoise in my case).

We put glue on the white spots that we see in the photograph and we separated the first two flowers from the lines of 2 pieces (yellow and fuchsia in my case). And we paste both flowers in the glue points that we put.

Thus you see the three flowers already joined. Now we will place glue on the white spots we see in the photograph and separate the second flower from the central 3 flower line (red in my case) and paste it there.

This will be seen once we glue the previous flower.

Now we will place glue on the white spots we see in the photograph (left side) and separate the second flower from the left two line (lilac in my case).

We stick it there and we get this piece as a result.

Then, we will place glue on the white spots that we see in the photograph (right side) and separate the second flower from the line of two right (orange in my case).

We stick it there and we get this piece as a result.

And we go to the last flower. We will place glue on the 3 white spots we see in the photograph.

And we paste the last flower of the line of 3 central (green in my case). And let dry well. Then, we will place glue on the white spots that we see in the photograph (right side) and separate the second flower from the line of two right (orange in my case). We stick it there and we get this piece as a result. And we go to the last flower. We will place glue on the 3 white spots we see in the photograph. And we paste the last flower of the line of 3 central (green in my case). And let dry well. Then, we will place glue on the white spots that we see in the photograph (right side) and separate the second flower from the line of two right (orange in my case). We stick it there and we get this piece as a result. And we go to the last flower. We will place glue on the 3 white spots we see in the photograph. And we paste the last flower of the line of 3 central (green in my case). And let dry well. And we paste the last flower of the line of 3 central (green in my case). And let dry well. And we paste the last flower of the line of 3 central (green in my case). And let dry well.

We prepare the base of the card now. We will cut a base in the white paper of 21 cm by 15 cm. And two pieces of design paper 10 cm by 14 cm. We glued them to the white base and prepared the hot glue gun. We place a glue point on the flowers on the central sides (in my case turquoise and green) and stick to the inner sides of the card. Do not put more glue than a point since otherwise, the pop-up of the card will not work.

It’s ready! If they want, as an original detail, they can add beads or other small central details to the flowers. Do not forget to put a nice message on the front. A beautiful idea! they do not believe?

Hope you like this bouquet flower pop-up card.

DIY Easy Canvas Painting Wall Decor Tutorial

DIY Canvas Painting Wall Decor art, inspired by artist Nancy Ramirez. The colors are painted on first, then the herringbone pattern is marked off with painter’s tape before the whole thing gets a coat of white.

You’ll need:

  • A canvas, in any size you choose
  • Painter’s tape
  • Acrylic paints in your preferred colors, plus one bottle of white paint
  • A paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • A disposable plate, wax paper, or scrap cardboard to use as a palette
  • Paper towels or a drop cloth to cover your work area

Assemble your paints and squeeze a quarter-size amount of each color onto your palette. And now, for the part where you get to go wild: Create the abstract painting of your choice. You can work with one color at a time, or alternate between hues as you work across the canvas.

To incorporate all of our colors, we used one at a time, rinsing our brush between each and blending until we covered the canvas. Experiment with long streaks versus wide splashes of color until you find a look you love.

Once you’ve covered the canvas, let it dry for a few minutes. (If you’re impatient, you can set it in front of a fan or blast with a hair dryer on the cool setting.) We used a second, slightly smaller paintbrush to apply a second layer of color, making sure the canvas was completely covered and the colors were blended well. (A little messiness is okay here!) Let the canvas dry completely.

Taping is the trickiest part of this project — but once you get the hang of your pattern, it gets easier. Cut roughly same-sized strips of painter’s tape and apply them to one side of the canvas in a staggered pattern. Leave an even amount of space between each strip to keep your pattern consistent.

Continue across the canvas, creating a design that looks like rows of stacked arrows. (Tip: Don’t worry if your tape strips aren’t lining up — you can easily lift up the end of a strip and cut it to fit with scissors.)

For our design, we chose to cover the entire canvas in a consistent chevron pattern. But, you can get more creative and remove random pieces of tape across the canvas to create a more abstract feel. Just remember that any areas not covered with tape will end up white.

First, examine your tape strips to make sure the edges are completely sealed along the canvas. Then, use your paintbrush to cover the canvas in white paint, being careful not to disturb the tape strips in the process.

Be sure to cover the canvas completely — we applied two coats for good measure. Once you’ve finished painting, let the canvas dry. Be patient with this step, since removing the tape before the paint is fully dry could mess up your design.

Starting at the sides of the canvas, carefully remove the strips of tape to reveal your painting underneath.
