Openwork napkin holder
Napkin holder - an indispensable thing, both at the holiday table, and during a quick snack. It will be appropriate to place a napkin holder on the desktop, for which very often it is necessary not only to work, but sometimes to eat quickly. This master class will tell you how to make a beautiful openwork napkin holder of small size, which due to its miniature will take a bit of space on the desktop, and due to its elegance it will be a great addition to the solemn table.
To work, you need to purchase plastic of any color that Mu will prefer the performer, in this case it is a plastic crimson color. As tools we will need: • plastic knives; • roll plate and rolling pin; • • foil.
We knead the plastic. We pinch off a small piece, which we divide into two equal parts.From each part we roll over a sausage with a diameter of 2-3 mm and a length of 4 cm.
Each sausage is bent symmetrically, forming curls at the edges. Send blanks for 10 minutes bake at the minimum temperature.
While the curls are baked, make another 5 sausages 20 cm long.
Four sausages will be the main openwork of the napkin holder, so you need to make them zigzag. We are starting to form the teeth.
The formation of teeth is done with the help of plastic knives, which are fed from above and below the sausage: holding the lower knife at an angle of 45 ° to the sausage, we press the upper one sausage to the blade of the lower knife. We do the same, moving a little to the right and turning the lower knife in the other direction - a tooth has formed. We continue to perform the above actions,moving further along the sausage.
Having finished forming the teeth on the first sausage, we make zigzags from the other three sausages. We make sure that the teeth are approximately the same.
The fifth sausage is cut into elements with a length of 5 mm. We place the zigzags with prongs to each other and connect their tops with the received elements.
We continue to connect zigzag elements with each other, which due to their waviness form openwork weaving.
The teeth of the uppermost wavy element must be decorated. For this purpose, we roll out a few balls with a diameter of 3 mm, the number of which is equal to the number of teeth of the upper zigzag.
Place the openwork blank on the roll plate and roll it in with a rolling pin - now all the elements firmly interconnected and the workpiece can be laid out on the foil forshaping and further baking.
However, we first finish decorating the upper teeth: place the balls on the tips of the teeth and press them in the middle with any object that has a rounded end, for example, brush or pen.
Our elements curls have long been baked and cooled - we place them along the edge pits openwork blank and cut off from her extra (protruding beyond the curls) plastic.
We twist our blank along with the foil, as if forming an eight.
We bake a product that, through the use of foil, will keep the resulting shape until it hardens in the oven. After complete cooling, remove the foil
