Materials for the manufacture of butterflies
In order to make butterflies, you do not need any special material, everything is quite realized from improvised means. For example, we can work:
With paper. No means cheaper and more convenient. The paper can be painted in any color we need, you can buy finished colored paper, or you can use the usual white.
From white office paper it is really possible to make things amazing in tenderness and beauty. Remember what New Year's snowflakes are. Carved, air, whatever forms, with whatever patterns.
The same can be done with butterflies. Look for blanks, on the example of which you can create your own butterfly from paper on the wall, and create.
With cardboard. Cardboard, like paper, is the most different: white and colored, matte and glossy, with a variety of patterns or even sprinkled with sparkles.
Cardboard is stronger than paper, therefore, the application must be fixed on the wall more reliable, and it will look more massive. In order for the cardboard to take shape, moisten the bend of the application and wait for its complete drying.
With vinyl film. Its convenience lies in the fact that it is enough to cut the stickers of the butterflies on the wall, then taking off the protective layer and gluing to where you would like to make an application.
Here you can also look for butterflies on the wall, and cut the stickers on their example. These films are of a variety of colors, and the glossy coatings will be beautifully shimmer in the artificial light of the room.
With fabric. Fabric applications are better friends with the material for their own, so such applications are more suitable for curtains or tissue lampshades of floor lamps than for walls.
But they are also quite friends with plain liquid wallpaper, so you can safely cut out multi -colored fabric moths and glue them using PVA glue or soap solution.
With paint. Butterflies can be drawn on the walls with acrylic paints. But if you do not feel in yourself the gift of an artist and at least some predisposition to this type of creativity, then it is better to choose a simpler option.
Or use butterflies stencils on the wall, with which you can apply paint according to ready -made forms. By the way, if you use the fluorescent paint, then the butterflies will come out of the luminous. But only the white wall is suitable for such decoration, while some light source must be provided next to it.
Application options depend solely on your imagination. But in order to have an idea of how such applications usually have, look for a photo of the butterflies on the wall to know what to build on.
Butterflies can be placed in the form of a heart, they can be “collected” in flocks in such a way that they seem to fly out of the doorway and rush upward, to the ceiling.
You can fixes flying butterflies from some kind of interior or furniture, for example, from a fireplace, chest of drawers, watches standing on the table. Applications in the head of the bed also look beautiful, they can be settled on interior doors and even the ceiling.
Regardless of what kind of material you choose, decorating the walls of butterflies is a great way to decorate your living space.
It is not necessary, by the way, to make such jewelry “forever”, try to timid them to some event-birthday, anniversary date, spring.
You can periodically change them to other colors and shapes, in this case, butterflies will constantly delight you with the very process of their manufacture and the result, and they will never bother.
