How to breathe new life into old wallpapers
Most people do not have the ability to do repairs as often as they would like. The reasons for this - a modest budget, lack of free time, and often both at the same time. Know: any problem can be solved, the main thing is to have a desire and some imagination. If your old eyes become boring old boring wallpapers, devoid of past beauty and freshness, this workshop is for you. This option of decorating the walls does not require the artist to possess special skills in the field of construction and repair, it is simple and, most importantly, does not require large expenditures, i.e. it is economical. Moreover, all the necessary materials can be found in a simple department store, and silhouette pictures can be downloaded on the Internet. Choose monophonic wallpaper (1 tube) without printed patterns. The tone should go well with the main color of the walls. In our master class it will be white wallpaper. Next, we arm ourselves with glue (we will need wallpaper or PVA, as well as glue stick). Visit the department with paints and brushes. Get black ink and two brushes of different sizes (thin and thick).Instead of mascara, you can use ordinary gouache, but then the color will not so saturated. The rest - a pencil, a ruler, scissors and a cup for water - can be found in every home.Let's start making the base of selected wallpaper in the store. Using a ruler and a pencil draw triangles of different length, size and shape. Cut with scissors or a knife for cutting paper, for a while we leave it under the press to allow the surface to straighten. Then selectively apply abstract black ink drawings on some of the figures that have a small volume.Preparing a preliminary sketch for which shows what location should take our triangles on the wall. For a basis we take a curve line on which we string figures.We lay them on the floor in a pre-selected order, then paste on the wall. To prevent the appearance of bubbles, smooth triangles with a cloth. We leave for a day, making sure that there is no draft in the room.Having finished with triangles, we start to make pictures for our new walls. This stage of work will require perseverance and ability to find material on the Internet. It is necessary to pick up silhouette pictures, in our case it was the theme “Dancing people”. The selected pictures are placed in a Word document and make the necessary adjustments (the size of the picture for the entire A4 sheet format, blackout, outlines). The result should be a clear, highly saturated dark silhouette. Finished pictures are sent to print, cut out and stretch in black ink. Perform this operation twice.
