Greetings to all readers!
I want to share with you a very simple but interesting recipe with which you can make different objects look as if they were made of clay.
For work we needed:
· Acrylic water-based paints (construction);
· Baking soda;
· Acrylic varnish (construction);
· Items for applying paint;
· Sandpaper and nail polish remover.
I read on the Internet that baking soda can be replaced with semolina, there will be a similar effect. But we haven't tried it. If you're interested, you can do a little experiment yourself.
We used a variety of Styrofoam vases and balls to apply this paint. There are no proportions when mixing paint with soda, just focus on the density.
Prepared vases for painting. Slightly smoothed with sandpaper, degreased with liquid and primed with white acrylic paint. They left to dry for several hours.
Pour acrylic paint into a small container. Choose the color to your taste. And add baking soda to the paint. Stir well.
We apply paint with baking soda to an object, preferably in one direction.
Dry the paint with a regular hair dryer or leave to dry on its own.
On the second layer, prepare the paint a little thicker, adding more soda. And we paint in the same way as for the first time and dry.
After the paint with soda has dried well, you need to cover it with acrylic (or other) varnish so that the soda does not crumble.
Varnish was covered in a slightly special way. A layer of varnish was applied, and, wiping the brush with a napkin, removed the excess varnish from the surface. If this is not done, due to the roughness of the surface, a lot of varnish remains and it will leave whitish stains.
These are the vases and balls we ended up with.
