All over the world recognized the art of "trash art". And at first glance, trash can turn into not only a beautiful thing, but also a practical one, which will serve you and please the eye. Believe me, all ingenious is simple. For example, I, cleaning up on the mezzanines, where the mistresses do not often look, found an old, unnecessary book. She turned it in her hands and decided to try to make an artistic, designer casket out of it. I will share the experience. For work I needed the following materials: - the old book; - corrugated cardboard; - toilet paper - cardboard - the belt with buckle; - lace; - satin ribbon; - PVA glue; - silicone glue; - gouache; - mother-of-pearl paints; - magnet;
And you also need brushes, scissors, clerical knife, ruler, kitchen sponge, awl.The first thing to do is disassemble the old book, that is, separate the cover from the pages. It is advisable to do this as carefully as possible, so as not to damage the binding.
