Antique Lantern Home Decor with waste Cardboard



so let me know how you like it in comments I try to answer all my comments so please don't hesitate if you have any doubt about it let's see the procedure on cardboard piece I made a rectangle with dimension of 4 inches 6.5 inches and this space is 0.4 inches now let's cut it I made four rectangles like this the square base 4 into 4 inches for triangles 4 inches each side then these are some extra pieces for decoration I'll attach them with hot glue like I some extra strips for decoration from inside like this though let's attach the base and now this pyramid-shaped with triangles the structure is ready now this space-time made by mixing one teaspoon of plaster of Paris or GOP 1 teaspoon of blue and some water to add this thickness I am going to use it as primer this is also called gesso of course homemade version we are going to apply texture paste on this structure so this gesso works as barrier between cardboard and texture paste otherwise if your platic shop is directly the cardboard will turn soggy as texture will take more time to get trial and this is homemade texture paste this time I use plaster of Paris and glue and just glue as per the thickness you want I'll apply it on our structure and make the texture with help of this knife as we want to give it antique look do this all over the structure inside and out it will look like this after time here I have some flowers you can use old use floss as anyway we are going to pin them I will stick them in my desired pattern with hot glue you can even stick them with pressure paste here I'm making some decoration by sticking pass in a piece of wire with hot room you put some more flowers and here are our pulse stick some flowers are at top – you can even stop at this step just color the lantern with some light color and you are done if you want antique look then go for the next step I am again usually using gesso which we made adding glue popin water but here I'll add some black color in it let's apply the paste on the lantern you can add this the thickness by adding more pupae just wanted my flowers to be little hearts and not looking so cakey so I am keeping it little watery now some Papa color and our pink or fuchsia here you don't have to be really perfect just color it roughly green on leaves and now I am coloring the lantern is black I like with metallic golden by dry brush technique less a metallic purple on flower for that particular look you need to layer colors like this metallic pink metallic green and now finish with metallic golden if you don't have this metallic colors I have a video on how to convert normal acrylic colors in metallic please check description box for link apply varnish or sealant and this will be the final look you
