Painting from improvised materials

Good day. Recently I went to visit my friend and saw on her wall a beautiful picture made of sequins. I really liked her and I also wanted one. I went to the store, looked at the pictures, at prices. It turned out to be a little expensive. Then I decided to make a picture with my own hands, the one that I need and without spending a lot of money. I want to show you what I did.

For the manufacture I needed:

- Polyfoam of the right size or cardboard covers.

- Ruler.

- Wallpaper.

- The knife.

- Scissors.

- Glue (VPA, moment).

- Sequins.

- Beads.

- Pencil, felt-tip pen.

- Free time, patience and imagination.

I saw pictures of difficult work, but since I have no experience, for a start I decided to make something easier. And so, I took polystyrene (packaging from the refrigerator, although a cardboard box would do). Using a ruler and a pencil, I drew a square of the right size and, armed with a knife, cut it out.

Then pasted it with wallpaper. You can take plain wallpaper (or fabric of any texture). I chose with a not bright pattern.

The next step was the application of the selected pattern. I wanted to draw a couple in love, since the day before was the holiday of all lovers. First, I drew a sketch on the canvas with a pencil, and then I circled it with a black felt-tip pen for better visibility.

If you have problems with drawing, you can transfer your favorite drawing using carbon paper. I took the plots of paintings on the Internet.

Taking glue and sequins, I began to glue them one after another end to end on all competitive lines, except for thin lines on the face (lips, eyes, eyebrows, ears).

On thin lines in the same way I glued beads.

Here's a picture. I really liked her, so I decided to make two more paintings with other drawings.

Here is another not big picture made of cardboard using sequins.

Despite the fact that the sequins are black, they shimmer beautifully from being hit by the sun. Such paintings can decorate not only the living room of your home, but also the bedroom or kitchen. They will be a good gift to relatives and friends for any occasion. You just need to select the desired plot for the picture.

Goodbye, see you soon.
