how to do it yourself

STEP 1
PAPER MOSAIC WITH THE ADULT COLORING BOOK - Step 1 | Hobbyideas

Select your favorite colored sheet from the Adult Coloring Book and paint it using your choice of colors from the Fevicryl Acrylic Lilac Kit.
I have chosen a design from the “Traditional Art Form” Adult Coloring Book. This design is inspired from the “Chintz” art form which involves usage of bright colors.

Thoroughly clean the surface of the tray. Using a flat brush, Prime the surface tray by using a mixture of Fevicol and Fevicryl Acrylic White mixed in equal quantities. Allow this to dry.

STEP 4

Neatly cut out shapes from the colored sheet using a scissor and stick it onto the tray to form a mosaic. Use Fevicol for sticking.
Avoid cutting all the pieces at once. You may lose track or continuity of the design and it will end up like a jigsaw puzzle. Cut and stick one piece at a time.

STEP 5

Apply a light base coat of a color of your choice on the remaining portion of the wooden tray.
I have used a mixture of Fevicryl acrylic paints: White and Deep Brilliant Purple, to get a light pink shade. I have used this mixture as my base coat. Allow this to dry.

Use a darker shade of color and a flat brush to paint wood grains. This gives a veneer effect to the tray. Allow this to dry.
