Description :
The Adult Coloring books are so tempting that you can go on coloring page after page. But here’s how you can put a colored sheet into your craft using a simple paper mosaic technique to decoupage a tray.
STEP 1
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.
STEP 2
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 3
Apply a base coat of your choice from the Fevicryl Lilac Kit. I have used Fevicryl Acrylic paint- Deep Brilliant Purple.
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.
STEP 6
Using a Fevicryl 3D cone outliner of your choice, fill the gaps in between the paper pieces. I have used Fevicryl 3D outliner- pink for my project.
STEP 7
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.
STEP 8
Apply Modge Podge to the finished article. Once dry, you can apply a coat of varnish to seal your work.
