This Elegant project was on my list since quite some time, who wont like to add such a peaceful decor item in their home. This is inspired from a decore item I saw on a e-commerce site and came up with my own DIY version of it for you all.
Materials used: Cardboard, Clay, Glue, POP, Aluminium Foil, Metal wire, Acrylic Paints( Black, Metallic Gold, Metallic bronze, Red), Varnish Here is a video tutorial
Cardboard width is 4 cm
Stick the stripes together on a pan to make a round shape
Make a base with cardboard and fix a metal wire for support
Mix POP+Glue +water in equal parts
apply the above paste to cardboard structure and let it dry.
This is just to explain why i used pop mixture on cardboard structure. In this pic u can see i applied glue and tissue paper layer to the cardboard which get absorb in cardboard and it gets soggy and changes its shape, also it doesnt get strong enough. POP makes it strong and as its gets dry really quickly the cardboard doesnt get time to soak the liquid and stays in shape.
Mix POP+Glue in equal quantity. and apply a thick layer on structure
Sculpture modelling Clay
Apply acrylic black as base coat
Metallic gold for body
Apply Varnish to seal the paints and protect the project from moisture
And she is ready!!!!
