Creating a picture

Everything is ready for creativity – work surface, light, chair or armchair, set of rhinestones, canvas on a subframe, tools. It’s time to proceed. If a set of mosaic is bought in the finished form, then it has everything you need. In the case when it is decided to make the basis with your own hands, then the canvas need to tighten on the manufactured subframe.

The first rows are a process requiring special attention. Glue base is pretty plastic, and the first rhinestones can shift. The following rows will already be a support, and it will go easier. You can attach the first row by a ruler as if by the limiter, moving the stones on the same distance.

  • You can work with faceted stones by tweezers, it is well holding faceted rhinestones, but round smooth stones need to take a stylus with a sticky gel on the end of the rod. Using tweezers, you should always remember caution – cover the stone for the sides, not scratching the surface.
  • The protective film is spared by small sectors, it is on that area that will be covered by rhinestones for the working time interval.
  • In case of incomplete calculation, the drawing slightly protrudes beyond the boundaries, falling on the main background. It is impossible to assume that the edging is contaminated, otherwise the visual effect will be spoiled. To avoid similar trouble, the border can be sealed by the liberated slices of the protective film.
  • For rhinestones comfortably lay face up, the tray must be shaken – almost all the stones will fall in the right way.
  • For simultaneous work with several colors, you can use the palette instead of tray.
  • When calculating, it is necessary to try to maximize the color boundaries, correcting the borders of irregularities and protrusions. Special attention is paid to square rhinestones – there should be no gaps between them. The geometry of round stones does not allow to do without gaps, but also to abide by the boundaries.
  • In case there are not enough color, you can pick up the rhinestone suitable or purchase the necessary.
  • Ready canvas need to dry. Typically, the sketch stroke the warm iron, ride the surface of the rolling pin, firmly pressing diamonds in the adhesive basis.

After drying the surface of the picture should be fixed – to cover with glossy or matte acrylic varnish, sometimes crackering is used for this purpose. This technique is needed not only in decorative purposes, it is also an additional fixer of rhinestones.

When working with lacquer, it should be remembered: a varnish on the brush is absorbed quite a bit, an extremely limited number. If you do not observe this measure, the lacquer mass will fall between the stones, the blurring clarity of the boundaries and leaving small bubbles. Mosaic will immediately lose part of beauty and perfection, such defects are clearly visible at a distance. After final drying, the picture is ready.
