Leatherette

Pictures of genuine or artificial leather - a great way to decorate the interior. They, made by hand, are an original gift for mother, for example, for the holiday of March 8. To create a still life “Bouquet. Callas ”will need: thick cardboard, self-adhesive paper, pieces of leather or its substitute, yellow yarn, waterproof glue, toothpicks, wire and scissors. At the beginning of the work it is necessary to make a pattern of paper. In the album we draw the necessary number of petals and leaves. The size of the parts is chosen arbitrary, corresponding to the parameters of the base of the cardboard base.

Attention! The responsible moment is the staining of the stems and leaves. When creating paintings from the skin of a craftsman, acrylic paint is usually used. Here, not an ordinary professional case, but amateur performance. We will use gouache and watercolor. So that the paint is not taken to the hands, we prepare a solution for it from water, vinegar and salt (2: 1: 1).We moisten the brush and paint the leather substitute.

Leaves leaves to dry for 8-12 hours.

It remains to add to the colors of the leaves. We choose the best location for the greenery and take on the glue. Attention! To make the surface of the skin relief will help the flame. If you hold the edge or middle of the petal above the fire, bulging tubercles will appear. With a leather substitute, such a trick will not work.
