Strictly speaking, it’s very simple. Only need to stock up on patience to allocate free time, as well as a hundred percent, use their imagination. This toy will be a child more expensive the purchase, because he watched every step of its creation, and older children can participate, or even do it yourself according to our instructions.

How to make beautiful lamp house

Lamp house from the fact that the hand 1

This master class is not exactly step by step, it is more to replenish the piggy bank of ideas than a recipe creativity.

To work on a lamp-house “of what is at hand,” we will approach:

-Let the packaging of juice or milk
-Paint scotch or ordinary scotch
-gips (Alabaster)
-what remained of repairs or specially purchased (in my case ready acrylic plaster)
-Paul tube of any diameter and material, the main thing that took place inside the cord. (in my case a plastic piece of small-diameter pipe – a fragment of the old exhibition cages for cats)
– cups
-gypsy bandage (the number depends on the size of the future building)
-Let plastic bottle (in my case green)
-plastic scissors
– food film
– rope
– stack (can be improvised from wooden skewers, for example) for the convenience of working with plaster and plaster bandage
-water to soak the bandage
-acrylic colors for the final finishing of the building
-lack (in my case, matt parquet ) in terms of manufacturing – they are individual, is largely dependent on your skill, the size of the house, and the degree of “fluid” a plaster base and bandage. At all stages of the construction of the house, you inevitably soak it with water. And after the new operation will have to wait for it to dry, for example, painting and finishing. While you’re working with plaster, bandage or plaster, you can proceed to new stages without waiting for complete drying. But the finish is possible only completely dry the product. My house is big and cox long.
Ideally – 1 day to assemble the entire structure (if the house is not great), and a half a day to dry, and 3-4 hours for painting. Recommendations to accelerate drying: finishing work at any stage prior to painting, leave your workpiece on a thick layer of paper towels or wipes. Gypsum is very hygroscopic. And because the water always tends to flow down, you will inevitably and, at times a long time (a few days) can be wet plaster base and the lower part of the walls. Napkins speed up the drying process. 1. Make a lamp base for this stage I do not have a visual image, so explain the essence of the words. From the usual clay completely any color makes a long sausage. Sausages flattened, closable in the ring and out of the circle forming the perimeter of the foundation of our future plaster casting.  It is set firmly on any flat surface, I use an ordinary kitchen table, the laid cling film, for the convenience of the base separated from the surface of the countertop. Once we found our path pouring over level ground, breed alabaster in the cup and got solution pour mold. At this stage, I fixed the plastic tube, just dropping it into another liquid plaster and lining on a level, fixed until dry. Plaster hardens very quickly, but the handset is not yet to be firmly fixed on the basis of its further strengthening strips of plaster bandage, Then we wait when the ground is dry and you can build a house. Drying depends on the size, thickness, and on how much liquid you have dissolved gypsum. Building a house can be in principle, and without waiting for the complete drying, we can wait for a sufficient strength. When the blank has cooled (gypsum always heated during solidification), you can shoot a plasticine ledge and continue to work. The photo and the blank gripped plasticine standing on a ledge, which was filmed with her.

2. The walls and roof – are building a frame house
to the frame of the building, we need empty packages of juice or milk, paint, or ordinary adhesive tape to fasten the structure.
The packaging mark up the windows and doors, suitable for our taste roof and collect all the items on the tape, checking evenness level design.
The walls are attached to the base by means of strips of plaster bandage. Next outside our construction glue on the adhesive tape pieces of plastic bottles in the window openings and paste our whole design first layer of plaster bandage.

3. House decoration

My house in half-timbered style, so the next phase of the I form the characteristic form of half-timbered houses of folded strips of plaster bandage. Making the layout frame as thin strips of plaster bandage. At this point, I handed the cord, as I yield to the cord of the lamp side and after the finish, there was a risk that I will not be able to push it. Cord fix with tape and wrapped his masking tape to avoid staining.

after starting a sketch of the layout wall plasterer. I use a simple, soft brush. Plaster wall background levels. And the layout of wooden beams I put longitudinal strips to simulate wood on wet plaster.
When ready, our primary frame with the finish, you can do the roof. It is also of plaster bandage. plastic material can be simulated tile or cane to make a variety of ways. 4. Gardens bloom When our house is ready, we need to decorate it with flowers, make a trail of pebbles and grass surrounding the house. I buzz your house roses. For branches, I take economically twisted rope. On the glue PVA glue pieces of rope, simulating climbing roses, to the walls of our house. Further, from a plaster bandage an emerging green, roses, grass around the house. To track our plaster in handy again. We impose her plump layer, level and causes notches in the form of individual stones. Now we wait for the complete drying. At the same stage electrician install, anchoring cartridge on the tube, decorate its base. And we do the first fitting lampshade. 5. Painting and final finish.
I liked my house at all stages of the final. And in white color with a white shade. Then it was painted black for further decoration. But in black with silver-steel shade, it looked great.
For painting, I use acrylic paint for interior and Color. For small areas fit and artistic acrylic paint. The finishing decor was made of bronze with acrylic paint using a sponge from the sponge for washing dishes. After complete drying of the house was covered with parquet matt varnish
Fabric Lampshade I toned coffee solution with PVA. Now, not only the desired shade of tone but also runs the flavor.

Enjoy your creativity and new ideas!

How to decorate bottle “Little House”

Decoration bottle Little House 1

Required Materials decorating bottles:

1. Bottle

2. The self-hardening modeling paste on the air.

3. Ground.

4. Acrylic paint

5. Bed

6. The varnish bitumen and lacquer on wood.

7. The adhesive liquid nails.

8. Latex putty.

9. Patience.

10. A bunch of ancillary material, which is we need for every kind of decoration.


Getting Started!

1. Take a bottle, from which we are going to do beauty. I have a small bottle of 100 ml. From bottle to decorate, remember, the longer the bottle, so it will be harder in the end! Were washed, stripped from it all labels, remove the traces of its past 🙂 then degreased her squeaky. And here we get a clean bottle!

2. Then uncork pack your clay … it can be a variety of pasta. I have tried many, many, can do a separate review of pasta 🙂 But I will not, until … Well, take the pasta and make a cake thickness of 0.5 cm – much as possible, but thinner is not particularly recommended the paste dries crack. 3. Roll out the cake bottle with a rolling pin. 4. Then this bottle tortilla wrap.5. Excess tear off, cut and crush fingers, and then Roll the little bottle with the paste.
6. Then take the cap off the bottle, it will we do windows 7. After forcing necessary to remove the paste – to dig, so to speak. How you do it does not matter, I do it with a palette knife. 8. Next, cut out the door. Well, the rest of the windows, and we get just such a thing: 9. The door, which cut not throw out. Her I decorate separately. You can do it in a different way, but directly in this bottle, I’m doing it! There is at my such things, they are not required, but doing the workplaces easier and more fun 🙂 Here I do not have photos, I laminated places the bottle on a blue plaque with floral ornament, and here was such a texture on the bottle itself. This time, I forgot to take pictures! 10. Then, my house shall be a roof. Her I do, forming a thick sausage and wrapped around the neck. Crush with your fingers, get the “mushroom hat”. Hold your fingers, crush hat and bottom. 11. Then, take the tool, I have this tool on a tree, but I think that any angled  do the task just as well. And start doing the roof. I will not describe, look at photos, I think it is clear that if the inquiry.

12. By the same principle do canopies over windows.

13. Next, I wanted to have this house were beams. The final project is not, therefore, do everything for the dictates of the heart!

Chop a long stick on the beam, it is desirable that they were approximately equal, and stuck on the roof.

14. All are now allowed to dry for a day. It can be more. At first, until the paste dries, glances, some pasta pop very much. But then I tell you about methods of struggle with the cracked product location.

15. The evening of the second day, and I view the loss!

Here,  one of the peaks in the window. To this end, I have liquid nails. visor attaching adhesive and pressed down. Checked, will hold a bang. Moreover, this adhesive can then be covered with paint.

16. Excess adhesive remove. A further view, where there is a crack.

17. Here, it became clear that such defect should be clean. And we do it with latex filler. Because sometimes you have to put putty in remote places, I go it’s “shoving” syringe without a needle, of course, but it turns out very handy!

Then, crush fingers, smooth that came to hand, I have this latex paintbrush.

18. Stage primer. I’m a different soil house. At this time, I take a black ground. And proceed to the primer. Brush leaves the band, especially noticeable on large surfaces, so I bottle body sponge of soil and roof in a remote place with a brush, there are extra relief stripes – we are not a hindrance!

We get an absolutely black bottle! 19. We continue to paint. Now I take just such a green acrylic. Acrylic dries quickly. While I paint, it dries on the brush, and not to run into the bathroom and wash the brush without end, leave them to soak in a jar of water, and the very next take the brush. So, the green paint. Solid is not painted, in some places, and it turns out: 20. Then I put or render a surface, without rubbing white primer. 21. Coloring roof. They are red, you may have a different color. 22. Then take the bronze  and thinly bronze acrylic, so that the apparent texture of the bottle. Excess paint on the brush palette and rented on any unnecessary piece of paper. 23. Now remember that the pipes in the house no. Ah … it is necessary to fix it! Bottle drying, lipid pipe. In a similar manner as a bottle. Just expand on masonry. 24. Then, take an old toothbrush and attach the texture of bricks … Well, can not they be smooth in our old fairy house!
Then try on pipe-stopper on the bottle and change in its sole discretion. I, for example, wanted her little “grimaced.” I have so much fun. It turns out this way. 25. Now take my favorite bitumen varnish. When I opened it the first time, he turns up his nose, saying that stinking of varnish is not met. And now nothing at all to me, and it does not smell that strange 🙂 26. I start from the top down, that is, from the roof. I put or render a varnish, and then take off the excess with a cloth, lightly feathered at the same time!

27. Leaving the bottle dry. Maybe the whole night, and I can get to it late at night.

28. toning pastels bottle, pick up the color I needed … and more!

29. Then take the cloth and rub clean excess pigment.

30. Then again taking bronze and allocate some space.

31. Then take the path and acrylic windows make the house. Circuit dries fairly quickly, but it is better to leave him alone for a few hours. And then spend it the line, and then when working with the product accidentally smashes … not tell how long it will go to fix 🙂

32. About the plug will not tell apart, it is clear that it passes all stages, as well as the bottle.

33. Then, the windows can be painted, and can be left as is, it is as you like 🙂 To paint the windows need a stained glass paint color that wishes your soul – the main thing that they were transparent.

34. cover the entire bottle of varnish or, as they say, professionals, reverse polish (I hearing this expression cuts, so everything is in a rural). And I leave it to dry for the time specified in the instructions.

The varnish I take the tree. Look, I specially photographed icons in the lacquer. This paint does not smell. It’s important for me. 35. After drying varnish I stick to the leaf mounting adhesive. It keeps well and becomes transparent when dry. And best of all – an assessment of the result!  And as the light of the windows, when viewed against the light.I think if you are in trouble with the electronics, it is possible to come up with a small battery-powered light bulb, then the house will be light. And so, quite a functional bottle turned out. It is possible to pour something, well, a tube or roll a note 🙂

1. To create the world in miniature, consider the story and style of the future work. In my case – is to create a miniature fantasy, the plot, which will be the scene of the life of a hunter dragons in the winter. For this master class, I chose to create a medieval hut. It is necessary to consider what materials and what tools we work. To our cabin looked plausible, we rely on history. In the Middle Ages, there were no paints and tools for wood, especially in the woods. Construction material was stone, wood, and clay. we will simulate in our construction. Since the Middle Ages, severe and ascetic time. Pamper our hunter we also will not.
2. In order to build a house, you must make it a sketch, it is more convenient to do it on graph
paper. The size of our house is:. Width 35 cm, length 36 cm, height 29 cm 3. Our roof is covered with tiles and a fireplace in the house is made of hewn stone. Prepare to do the required number of pieces of self-hardening plastic. 4. Make the foundation for the fireplace from a dense foam. Cut her with a knife Prototyping. 5.

The miniature doll made, it is possible to look inside the house. Therefore, we will do our roof hinged to one side of the opening. This will allow us to change the exposition inside the house. We connect the two parts of the roof loops. And sticking the prepared tiles made of terracotta-colored plastic. On the one hand fastened to the roof of the glue and screws. 13. To bring the winter effect paint the window paint simulating snow. 14. putty and white paint decorate the stand under the house.

How to make beautiful tea house

How to make tea house 1

This master class want to show how to decorate the house for tea made of plywood under the forest izbushechku without using decoupage. Master Class Time is suspended, without time to dry.
When I received and gathered her hut, her bokovinki simulating log walls, immediately created an image of the fairy house in the forest, hidden amongst mountain ash and fir trees. This idea I decided to translate. We need: purchase house from plywood, water stain (I have the color mocha) for wood, textured paste, PVA glue, acrylic paint (I korichnevvaya, carbon black, bronze), glass paint, sandpaper with different grits, masking tape, stencil acrylic contours, brush, palette knife.

Before you begin any of collecting house and see that all the slots close to the end into each other. If something somewhere bother finalizing a file 🙂 It is advisable to remember or mark which wall from which a party to avoid confusion in the future.

Mordant for wood, I chose to paint just because of the fact that it attaches to the workpiece color of natural wood, leaving visible its “structure” (or rather, the name of this “structure” in plywood – I do not know, in general, these beautiful, “natural “streaks

After drying the skins to properly collect and smoothness house. PVA glue construction wall between himself and the roof. I’m on the floor until pasting, for the convenience of further manipulation, but at the time of bonding of the floor wall insert so that they are not twisted. I fix the masking tape and rubber bands. I do not know how anyone, but I prefer a thin glue on the edges of the cracks and distribute a toothpick and spicy flat nail file 🙂 left to dry for several hours. Here, at the Fair, I met with a magic effect “glow” in the decoupage works of some artists, and have long wanted to try to apply it by hand. To do this, at the center of each face of the house and the roof I carefully hides, blowing out:

Then again, the whole house cover with stains, land and again the skins – the edges slightly, the center is strong. And so do a few times, until we reach the desired effect. Now we go to the application of decorative elements. Rowan mountain ash, but it I decided to do some framing patterns. I really like to do the bulk pattern texture paste. On the one hand this pattern stands out due to its volume, on the other – not too flashy and will not interrupt the main figure due to its color close to the color of the house. We spread the texture paste in a glass, add there a little acrylic paint, I took the brown and carbon black, so that in the end turned the color slightly darker edges of faces. Impose a stencil (I Adhesive) and causes the paste is not too flat and not too thick. Spatula for some reason it is not convenient to apply, I put a stick for ice cream A few hours later, when the paste is dry, lightly brush the paint on the plot the bronze pattern:

At this stage we can already stick to the base of a house.

Getting acrylic painting contours. You can pre-apply pencil drawing, I draw once: first osnovyne elements – green twigs and red-orange berries (such as on the roof), then supplement highlights (bronze circuit) and shades (brown contour) – both on the wall of the house.

The two sides have I done with rowan, the front and rear wall has decided to do with pine branches. To use real pine cones can be. I cut them in half with a knife, choosing the appropriate items. Please outline the location and paste the bumps. So they stuck close, grind and align the direction of bonding bumps skin. Then dorisovyvat pine branch. First again osnovyne elements – green branches and needles as they dry out a bit, complement other flowers, dried needles bronze color.

When the paint dries, pass stain again over all edges of the house, including the bulk ornament, leaving intact the main pattern to further highlight the effect of “glow” from the center faces. The whole house is covered with lacquer in several layers with drying of each layer.

Forest hut ready! To enhance the effect, you can drop of essential oil of fir, spruce, pine or cedar.
