Father's day is coming (19th March in Italy): have you thought to a present? A tie, a pen, a good book... or, better perhaps, a special handmade gift. Time is short and we want to share with you a simple, beautiful and funny project: a realistic leather effect!
This is a technique that allows the customization of every object: album covers, daybooks, boxes, wooden or MDF desk sets... everything your imagination suggests!
Stone Paper is the best kind of paper to create a perfect leather effect: it is paper, but its surface reminds the leather and, once decorated, it will looks like leather.
Here below, our tutorial:
- Apply Modeling Paste (K3P38W) on the surface with the use of a sponge brush to create an irregular surface.
- Apply Aquacolor Pine (KE34A) on the surface, with the use of a round brush, then distribute the colour with a sponge brush, to uniform it. Let dry and repeat the sequence with Aquacolor Cherry (KE34H) and Chestnut (KE34B) (and/or Aquacolor Leather KAQ004. It depends of the colour intensity you want to get).
- Once the colours are dry, you can apply a little bit of Permanent Ink (WKPKIT01) on the surface (in particular near the edges), with the use of a sponge brush. In this way you will give an aging patina effect to the object.
... ET VOILA'...
