Chain lock

Без рубрики

A shoulderblade jacket is something every girl should have. But they are not always buttoned up in front. If that is inconvenient place a chain to connect the sides.

A chain might be a delicate one or a heavy one. But keep in mind it being strong enough. Basically the details used are the back of a choker (clasps, chain, rings, carabin). In this way, with a shirt, your chest is an incredible place for more chain jewelry.

Mousetrap

I found these mousetraps and they looked very promising for decoupage. The mouse logo is quite universal so I did not cover it. Moreover, I think red goes well with blue. I used stationary ink and not sumi ink. In this way it is way more easier to complete this piece.

On the other side I made decoupage (as always, with typewriter text, and I haven’t patch it). Then I stained it with same ink again. This ink is transparent.

Mouse (Animal) qualities:

  • Symbol of support of animal rights in science

  • Traits for observation, weakness, annoing

  • Sign of effort

A notion about death and seeking help in others. Do not be careless with what you feel rich. A tool of a mouse will connect your specific personality to anything in the world.

This is a stand-alone item. You do not need to combine it with anything else. Basically, any other decoration will make the meaning very off.

If you attach ribbon (in this case it would white color), you can decorate it with bow or be able to hang a mousetrap on a nail or else. This is a motionless object, it does not require to be lacquered. Probably a mousetrap will work as a card holder or smth. In any case it’s a cute addition to a clean desk. Use dice cubes instead of cheese. But use the mechanism with caution. If you are sure to hang it, take a look at making the blank side as a blackboard. Blackboard stickers will do, because in this way you preserve decoupage as well. Play with paper that is made specific for decoupage in order to achieve style. If the mousetrap just lays on a surface, place bottles. They are small enough and they require some sort of small table as well.

P.S. Before starting make sure the mousetrap is definitely not good with the color of the wood it is made of. So that you do not ruin some fine wood. Decide if you want just one mousetrap or few. Plant out the color scheme. I am sure you do have skills, but do not use anything else other than decoupage. Also it is not necessary to wrap around the whole plate, but if you promise to use acrylic paint to fill blanks. Also one can paint the metal as well in interesting colors. Remember not to tear paper, try to glue it as a wallpaper (wich is also a thing to use).

If you are able to do quests for items, do search for the perfect or the cheapest mousetrap. Or the one that has vintage history. You can also search for old wallpaper or ask for a small piece of nicely patterned one. Interior designers know that one can have samples of materials. In case you do have a cage type of mousetrap, you can style it as a little house. Some people do keep rodents as pets, but do not give this decorative item to them as the metal is dangerous (to cats as well).

Sumi ink works as a blackboard.

Inks

Ink is a universal ancient material with great power. Its support tool is feather that has an unlimited amount of interpretation.

I use two types of inks: sumi and stationary one.

Sumi. This is an Asian trade. One has to develop patience in order to produce the most black ink. I found it to be very useful for things that require treatment. It protects from mold, bugs. It is the perfect black.

Stationary. This ink is extremely fine and thin in order to be able to work in extremely fine graphic pens that give lines of 0,05mm. It dilutes very well in a lot of steps. In that way one can make draft lines that are not that visible as black ones, for that is supportive information. It is advisable to get one bottle of color ink and one black. One can use black instead of sumi when possible. It is not necessary to buy a stamp pad, try to make the stationary ink work clean.

Stay aware of art inks and stamps.

Brushes:

For sumi –sumi brushes

For art – natural art brushes

For stationary – basic brushes

Use feather for writing handwritten or font texts. People actually fall onto either of those. Some like themselves to be good at own hadwriting or be fast with fonts. The main font is Trojan.

Obviously, ink does not stain after and dries fast.

decoupage technique

My style uses only one specific text for decoupage. It is really the most affordable and also appropriate way to achieve the decoupage. This keeps all made items altogether. The piece remains in the future open for any additions of decoration or remaking. This is specific for gifts, which is good because a person is able to customize and craft it more in personal way.

The text is an original lecture on law of attraction. One can see positive words.

Glue brush

I do insist on having one sheet of watercolor paper that will serve forever and set the mood, so to say. Size A3 is at best.

Test the glue you have on something first. It is easy to return again with another glue. It can be vinyl glue, a stationary clear glue. I do not recommend to use something that is said to be a decoupage glue, but getting a decoupage lacquer should be cheaper than acrylic lacquer. But if you plan to have your piece in use and not just staying still, you need smth more real. This is also about vases as you want them to stay forever. Do think about the texture of your piece, is it adhesive. With attention you will be able to find more things to decoupage.

The brush on the picture is at the same time cheap and gets clean off glue well. Prepare surfaces of working space and item. You do not need a separate free table or anything like that. The underlay paper works at best.

1. Prepare surface

2. Tear paper (optional)

3. Glue completely paper one by one

4. Put item dry

5. Check how perfect the work is (optional)

Additional materials are acrylic paint, lacquer, leaves, etc.
