For autumn theme came to me this box. A little unexpected and uncharacteristic for my work.
Perform such work does not require special skills of drawing, it is the strength and beginners.
Home, fantasy and orderly execution.
Acrylic paints : white, black, red-orange-yellow-green-blue-violet
Here is my source code: box, waited in the wings at least a year. Harvesting of elm wood, tinted stain (think walnut).
Pre-made sketches on paper by distributing the leaves on the cover of the box, and some plan how they will be placed at the bottom. Then sketched already at the box pencil, lines and filled with white. White to the subsequent application of the paint layer was really colourful
Here are the highlights of this stage:
Note the ends caskets I sometimes follow a pattern tree and outlines wavy lines straight “on the trail” (photo – bottom row right).
Parallel to begin to fill the leaves colour, reprises the rest white. All in a typical autumnal tone. It is now … 🙂
Next appear iridescent colours! When conceived work, be honest about them and I did not think. Prismatic burst suddenly and unceremoniously. There were doubts, but stay I could not
After completing all the colours start to work with the contours, rather, it is a contour paste. The lines are thin paste does not spread, it is very convenient to work! I have here are:
I have three colours in the process: gold, bronze, copper. Here, the main thing is not to hurry up and change the areas of work in order to avoid smearing un dried moments.
Decided to decorate the edge of the cover crumb Pot al (bronze, copper, gold).
How I do it: for glue , I did not have on hand, took advantage of acrylic lacquer. Nanoshu thin layer of varnish, just give it to dry and begin to apply potal slices, pressing down slightly flat brush. That’s the “doubleness” obtained by:
Giving it to dry for about an hour, I start to take off the excess sweat, too flat brush.
Likewise execute and hem on the bottom.
Now photos of finished work from different angles. On rowan berries and put blichki draw “tails” in black.
