HI FRIENDS,
GOT BORED OF MAKING FLOWERS ALL THE TIME?
WANT TO TRY OUT SOME THING DIFFERENT?
YA ME TOO FELT THE SAME WAY SO TRIED THIS MAPLE LEAF.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE PATTERN AND WANTED IT TRY OUT ON SOME THING.ONE DAY IS SAW THESE LEAVES IN A SHOP.THEY HAVE KEPT A VERY LARGE BUNCH OF THESE LEAVES.SO I THOUGHT WHY DON'T I TRY IT OUT AND THE OUT COME IS THIS.PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS:-)

MATERIALS:
  • WHITE CHART PAPER
  • FABRIC PAINTS
  • CRACKLE MEDIUM
  • THIN AND THICK WIRE
  • BROWN TAPE
  • GLUE N GLOSS
METHOD:
  • CUT A MAPLE LEAF DESIGN IN A THICK CHART PAPER,THIS WILL BE YOUR TEMPLATE
  • WITH THE USE OF THE TEMPLATE CUT THE NUMBER OF LEAVES YOU WANT
  • FIRST COLOR THE LEAF WITH YELLOW.THIS WILL BE YOUR BASE COLOR,AFTER IT DRIES APPLY A THICK COAT OF CRACKLE MEDIUM.
  • AFTER 5 TO 10 MINS THAT IS WHEN THE CRACKLE MEDIUM IS HALF SET APPLY THE SECOND COLOR.THE SECOND COLOR SHOULD BE LITTLE WATERY.ADD COLOR AND WATER IN 3:1 RATIO
  • ACCORDING TO THE DIRECTION OF THE SECOND COLOR ONLY YOU WILL GET THE CRACKS,SO APPLY IT ACCORDING TO THE DIRECTION OF THE LEAF
  • CUT THIN WIRE TO THE REQUIRED SIZE AND STICK IT TO THE BACK SIDE OF THE LEAF WITH GLUE N GLOSS
  • AFTER IT DRIES MIX GLUE N GLOSS AND WATER IN RATIO 4:1 AND APPLY IT EVENLY ON THE LEAF,SO THAT IT WILL BECOME SHINNY AND WASHABLE ALSO.
