Paper Mosaic With The Adult Coloring Book
You Will Need :
Adult Coloring Book, Fevicol Power, Fevicryl Lilac Kit, Fine Art Flat Brush, Fevicryl 3D Cone Outliner, Modge Podge, Wooden Tray, Scissors
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.
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.
Apply a base coat of your choice from the Fevicryl Lilac Kit. I have used Fevicryl Acrylic paint- Deep Brilliant Purple.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Apply Modge Podge to the finished article. Once dry, you can apply a coat of varnish to seal your work.
