Newspaper frame for baguette

Sometimes even the simplest fake, made by hand, is valued much higher than the purchase from the store. Proof of this is a frame for a picture or photo, glued together from ordinary newspaper tubes. In this master class we will tell you how to make a beautiful big frame practically free. We will need: 1. Old unnecessary newspapers 2. The rod from the handle 3. Glue pencil 4. Clay Secund 5. Black gouache 6. Golden paint 7. Brush 8. Ruler with an angle of 90 degrees 9. Cardboard sheet 10. Scissors 11. A4 sheets Progress: 1. Take one page of the newspaper on the size of A4 paper. We twist from it tubules of identical width. To do this, we need a rod from a handle.

2. Since we will have a three-tier baguette, we first glue together three tubes. We wait until the glue dries, and during this time we glue the second tier: for this you need to glue two tubes. We fasten both tiers.The final stage is the third tier, for which we stick one tube. That's what we did.

Since the size of our picture is too large to do with four such blanks, it is better to prepare 8 such constructions. 3. The next stage is the preparation of the base for our frame. Take a sheet of cardboard. We specially increased the bottom and width by 3 cm in order to glue baguettes that are as much as 3 cm wide. So, cut the workpiece under the frame, which sides are 3 cm wide. 4. A very crucial moment has come - you need to adjust the angles of each of the blocks. To do this, cut the edges strictly by 45 degrees. Use a protractor or ruler while working.
5. Combine every corner. Apply glue to the surface of the cardboard, press the newspaper blocks and wait a few minutes. It is important that our frame is smooth and neat, so it is necessary to work well to ensure that newspaper blocks are clearly glued together.
6. Leave our fake to dry. For this, she will need a couple of hours 7. Now that the frame is completely dry, proceed to the coloring.We chose black. If you want your frame to be white or any other light shade, it is advisable that the newspaper tubes themselves be without text and drawings. Otherwise, it will take a lot of time and effort to paint over all the flaws. We saved you and yourself from this work by choosing a thick black gouache. We paint the frame carefully, not missing hard-to-reach places between the tubes.

8. Since the picture or photo we thought was very large, in the middle of each side of the frame we got an inaccurate seam that can be disguised. We decided to dilute the black volume with a hint of golden hue next to each stitch.
