Let's plunge into childhood for a while and remember the aching feeling of anticipation and impatience, when the main holiday of the year is coming! We offer you to make a winter decor of wooden cuts. You can do it with children or friends as well :)
We will need:
- well dried wooden cuts;
- apparatus for pyrography;
- acrylic paint. As an option – a whiteout ;)
- paint brush;
- at will and choice – picture loops or tape, a drill for drilling holes, ropes-ribbons for fastening, and maybe even a magnet – depending on how you want to apply these products.
1. Marking is the staff of life, and we do not get tired of repeating it! :)
At the stage of marking, you can understand how harmoniously the picture is placed, whether all the details fit and whether something needs to be edited. According to the layout, it is easier, faster and more pleasant to pyrograph :)
We have conducted this workshop offline, and offered participants pictures to choose from, you can also come up with something of your own.
2. It just seems like the job is simple. In fact, it is a little more difficult to pyrograph on cuts, because such an arrangement of fibers makes the surface more friable and heterogeneous.
To achieve more or less smooth lines, you will have to make some effort. Literally, pressing the device, proceed with strong movements as if smoothing the fibers of the wood. If the lines are uneven, you can repeat them again and again. But it is better without perfectionism - the "live" line makes the work unique and naively sweet, to match the upcoming holiday :)
3. It was the turn of the white paint. If you think that it is good without it, then the following steps could be skipped. To be honest, we think that the paint in the pyrography is usually too much. But as soon as there are white accents, we understand that that was it. White sets off the wood and pyrography lines. And you can also add snowflakes ;)
Two photos with options to add yellow color:
That's it! Such cuts can be a decorations of the Christmas table, Christmas tree, decor for gift packaging, stands for cups, or...? What other options could there be?
Pleasant to you preparation for holidays, excellent mood and inspiration!
