- toilet paper (white);
- white and blue paints (acrylic);
- golden paint (acrylic);
- two-layer napkin with a pattern;
- glossy varnish for coating;
- paint brush;
- glue (better to take PVA);
Step-by-step process description:
- First we need to prepare a bottle for decoration: wash, dry, remove the label.
- Since the bottle will be made in the style of Gzhel, then choose the appropriate napkin. It is desirable, but not necessary, that the napkin contains both large and small drawings.
- From the selected napkin you need to cut a large picture. This will be the centerpiece of our bottle. And one small - for decorating the cover.
- Now we are preparing toilet paper (paper towels are also suitable), for this we cut it into small squares.
- We mix PVA glue with water in proportions 1 to 1.
- In order to apply glue to thin toilet paper as gently as possible, we will use a brush.
- Wet the pieces evenly applied to the bottle. We do not need to achieve a perfectly flat surface. It will be more interesting and beautiful if the bottle turns into a small fold.
- In this way, it is necessary to glue the entire surface of the bottle and the cap and let it dry for a while.
- Since toilet paper is a very thin and transparent material, it will be good to paint each side of the blank with white acrylic paint.
- The same action is produced with a lid.
- We glue a large pattern with the help of an acrylic lacquer to the center of the bottle, and a small one onto the cap.
- After our pattern dries out well, paint over the entire white part of the bottle and the cap with blue acrylic paint.
- Next, apply a golden-colored paint on the sponge and light movements on the folds of the bottle with gold product. The same action is done on the lid.
- From the remaining bottom of the napkin we twist the flagella and paint the entire surface with a golden color.
- Dried flagella form into the decorative patterns we need. Of course, you can come up with your own.
- For small decorative parts, we cut a short distance of the flagellum and twist it in the form of half-rings with the help of an ordinary pencil.
- We apply PVA glue on the bottle in a thin layer to the places where our decor will be located and glue on decorative elements.
- We cover the entire surface of the bottle with acrylic varnish in several layers. Our bottle is ready!
In such a simple way we made an amazingly beautiful and useful thing out of ordinary toilet paper and an unnecessary bottle!
