Make an interesting house decor for tea bags
The first master class presents you a beautiful option for decoupage a tea house. It will take you up to three days to create it yourself, but as a result, you will receive a unique product that will long please you and others with its beauty.
In order to make a tea house, you need to prepare the next set of necessary materials and devices. So, prepare:
- billet from a tree for a tea house;
- an interesting motif (it can be prepared from printouts of various images,
- printed on rice paper , napkins or special cards for decoupage);
- Acrylic primer of light shade, intended for surfaces from wood;
acrylic paints shades of umber and ocher;
- patina of bronze tone;
- Special glue for decoupage;
- stencil with adhesive base;
- paper (coarse-grained);
- office file;
- rubberized spatula;
- sponges made of foam rubber;
- Brushes of flat form of sufficient width;
The master class begins with the preparation of the wooden surface to the primer. For this, take sandpaper and walk it through all the wooden planes, carefully removing all uneven places. After this, it is necessary to prime the surfaces, except the walls that are inside the house. For the primer, you can use a wide flat brush and apply a couple of layers, each of which is dried. Please note that the primer is applied in one direction. If you do not have a brush available, use a foam sponge or roller.
After letting the primer dry, walk on it with sandpaper, so that the tea house ends up smooth and smooth. Take this process carefully, because with careful surface treatment, the selected motif will be placed in a beautiful and even layer over the product.
In the next step, the master class demonstrates the pasting of the selected drawing using an ordinary clerical file. Follow step-by-step photos to view this process. So, you need to take the glue for decoupage and apply it on the primed plane. Next, take the selected image and attach it. A file is superimposed over the motif. Now with a spatula, you need to walk on the surface of the tea house, starting with the central part. In this way, the formed bubbles are expelled during the gluing of the pattern, and the motif itself is securely fixed.
Similarly, you will need to manually fix all the remaining images on each side.
After this, the interior of the tea house begins to be decorated. Prepare a wet brush and walk it on the inside of the house for tea bags. So moisten all the walls and the lower part. On a wet wooden basis you need to go through a sandpaper with a large grain. So, the process of debris will go deeper. Next, a solution is prepared from water and acrylic hue ocher. This mixture is applied in one small layer. On the bottom of the protruding part and the thickness of the product is applied an undiluted layer of acrylic with a shade of umber.
We pass to the roof of the tea house. It should be painted with a thick layer of brown color with a wide and flat brush in the direction of the fibers in several layers. Take care that you do not have unnecessary gaps on the plane on which the primer was applied.
After letting the blank dry, take a wide bristly brush. It must necessarily be dry, soak it in the ocher shade paint, get rid of its excess with a napkin and with a slight depression walk on the surface in the same direction as the painting.
These actions are carried out on the entire plane of the roof of the tea house in the upper and lower parts. In this case, small stripes of ocher color are formed. As a result, the roof will become more attractive.
To make the tea house with decoupage even more grace, it can be decorated. To do this, take an interesting template, applied to the glue base and patina of bronze shade. Next, fix the desired element on the roof to the adhesive base. After that, patina is applied to the sponge and is driven into the stencil by a slight movement.
Now, with the help of the same sponge, apply patina on the roof borders. Next, the roof of the tea house is covered with several layers of varnish based on acrylic. Each of the words is pre-dried. Then, on the dried surface, a varnish is applied on the acrylic base for finishing work.
Also, the selected images on the stencil can be applied to different angles of the product, then, using a sponge and patina of bronze color, walk through the corners, the borders of the cut-outs and the window.
In the protruding lower part, the sponge with the patina is given a relief by a light pressure, as in the photo.
On the inner and outer sides, it is necessary to apply a pair of varnish layers based on acrylic, each layer is dried before application. After all the drying stages, we fix the work with the finishing varnish.
Be sure to take this master-class and in your interior will be a delightful decorative object in the form of a unique tea house.
