Flashlight Decoration

Candlestick in the form flashlight
Candlestick in the form of a flashlight is an original interior decoration. In the darkness of the room, the flashlight leaves fancy shadows on the walls and ceiling - in the form of stars, as well as butterflies painted on glass. Decorating it is very interesting and not difficult. So, what materials do we need to prepare for work? 1. Blank candlestick in the form of a flashlight in white, gray or any other color. 2. Primer, best transparent. 3. Acrylic paints and silver contour on glass. 4. Pliers to remove the glass. 5. A flat synthetic brush of medium size and a coarse large brush. 6. Acrylic matte or glossy varnish. The first stage. To work on a flashlight was convenient, you must first remove all the glass from it. To do this, we use pliers, we will unfold the metal holders and gently pull out the glass. After this, it is advisable to wipe the glassso that there are no spots and fingerprints.

Now our candlestick can be primed without fear that the soil stains the glass. We take a flat synthetic brush and cover the entire flashlight with a primer both outside and inside. Leave to dry.
The second stage. While the soil dries, it is possible to deal with glass. In this master class, butterflies were drawn on the glass with a silver outline. But the drawing can be chosen absolutely any. We select a suitable pattern from the Internet, reduce the image to the size of the glass and print it out. If there is no printer at home, you can translate the image with a pencil from the monitor screen or even draw it yourself.

There are six glasses, each of them needs to be drawn half butterflies, which then develop into three whole butterflies. We take the picture, put it under the glass, and on the outside of the glass we outline the translucentimage.

So draw the contour of the butterflies on all six glasses and leave them to dry for about 12 hours. The drying process can be accelerated with a hairdryer if desired.

The third stage. We return to our lamp. Now that the ground is dry, the candlestick can be painted with dark brown acrylic paint. Stir the desired shade on the back of the plate and paint the entire flashlight outside and inside with a flat synthetic brush.

When the paint is dry, squeeze on a clean palette- a plate of a little silver outline with which we painted butterflies. Take a coarse large brush, dipped in silver paint and move the brush over the palette to get rid of the excess paint. Please note that the brush should be absolutely dry - this is the only way to get the desired effect. We'll brush the entire candlestick, highlighting the protruding places and leaving thin strips of silver. This will give our harvesting a nobly aged look.Asterisks can be distinguished especially by walking around them with silver paint.

The fourth stage. After the paint dries, we cover the candlestick with acrylic varnish and wait for it to dry. Fully varnish dries in 24 hours, but ceases to be sticky after a few hours.

When the varnish dries, but dries at the same time and butterflies, glass can be inserted back. This will also help us with pliers or any other metal improvised tool that seems convenient to you. That's all, the glass is in place, the flashlight is ready. Now you can install a candle inside and enjoy its beauty.
