From the home of the needlewoman always blows warmth and coziness. Home-made household items, paintings and panels I want to examine for a long time and feel the mood conveyed by them. Tips for making winter panels from experienced craftswomen will help to personally add New Year's magic to your home.
What is required?
Despite the similarity of forms, the panel is significantly different from the picture. You can create a picture using canvas and paints, while a panel requires volume and additional decorative elements, depending on the chosen technique. As a rule, needlewomen can create a masterpiece from any materials at hand, because they always have skeins of multi-colored threads, ribbons, rhinestones and beads.
A beginner in this field has a harder time, because more materials have to be purchased. The most popular materials for the manufacture of winter panels:
- woolen threads;
- tree branches and bark and other natural material;
- cotton wool;
- cardboard templates with the image of birds, animals.
Perform volumetric paintings on canvas, paper, glass and stretched fabric.
The topics are:
- winter landscapes;
- bullfinches, tits, sparrows;
- children's pictures depicting New Year's holiday heroes.
It should be noted that if the panel is performed in conjunction with the child, the theme can be intertwined and intersect. For example, animals, birds can be added to winter forests. In addition to basic materials, improvised tools will be required. So, the panel will not do without:
- PVA glue and superglue;
- acrylic paints and gouache;
- varnish to fix the result.
How to make?
To create a winter panel with your own hands, it is important to present a future picture or sketch it. When engaging in creativity with children, you should start with easy and accessible paintings. One of these may be a panel with elements of woolen thread. Particularly warm and realistic look birds made of multi-colored finely chopped woolen threads, which after cutting are glued to the sketch. Bullfinches or tits in this case can be part of the picture, but for a larger volume they can be separately cut out of cardboard and, after filling out of wool, glued to the finished landscape using double-sided tape.
It should be noted that the foam tape does an excellent job of adding volume and revitalizing.
Together with the children, you can make a panel on the theme of winter with your own hands using the no less interesting method, which will certainly interest young creators. For lush white snow in this case, shaving foam and PVA glue are used in a ratio of 1: 1. Light snow-white paint is applied to the picture, turning into relief snowdrifts and a weightless snowball on the trees. After drying, the three-dimensional panel can be placed in a frame.
Another stylish painting on the wall is done using classic asphalt crayons. To do this, wires, garlands and lampholders are drawn on a black or any other dark background, a lamp holder is applied and it is thickly painted over with chalk. The template is removed, and the edges are smeared with a finger or cotton wool. A bright and original wall panel, made in this way, is perfect as an article in a kindergarten or school.
If the desire to create goes further than completing a task for a kindergarten, then you can try to create an amazing landscape on glass. To do this, you need a finished printed winter landscape, which is installed in a frame with glass. Then the trees, bushes and Christmas trees are filled with cereals, for example, rice or buckwheat, depending on the type of trees. Trunks are made of thin twigs and are attached to the glass with superglue; snowdrifts become voluminous with paper torn into small pieces. The primer and acrylic painting finish the work. The background from under the glass can be removed and to personally paint details on the sheet of whatman paper.
Pictures in the form of windows with a landscape made of wooden slats look interesting. The frame in this work can be made by hand or bought, but painted under the general color scheme of the picture. As you can see, you can create from any materials. In the hands of masters, cereals become the foliage of trees, and shaving foam - luxurious magical snowdrifts, painted bunnies and bears become fluffy when decorated with their fur. This is the main joy of needlework - to create unique things from simple things and transform them beyond recognition.
Winter outside the window is a bewitching three-dimensional picture created by interweaving various materials and techniques. Twigs and bullfinches from threads harmoniously combine with a snowball from cotton wool and cozy wooden window slats. A small Christmas wreath complements the picture. An amazing winter panel of thin twigs reflects the beauty and appropriateness of using natural materials in paintings. Felted wool bullfinch complements a cozy creation.
The voluminous landscape of the winter village is made of a mixture of shaving foam and PVA glue. An additional highlight is the frame, which merges with the picture into a single whole.
Light and unobtrusive panel made of natural materials can decorate any home. The branches and leaves of the trees are expertly primed, which gives the picture a special structure and relief. A cute children's image is made using multi-colored patches sewn into a single picture. The panel is perfect for winter decoration of a children's room.
Another children's picture depicting cute snowmen is made from salt dough. Soft and supple, it allowed to convey the New Year's mood of the heroes.
The original picture of the winter city was born using pebbles and acrylics. Good rounded houses create a magical mood and admire the creativity of the master.
