This is another way to try Henna Acrylic designs. I bought this wooden butterfly from a dollar store..was 3 dollars. I found that acrylic paints filled in cones( fill the cones with acrylic paints just like you would fill it up with mehandi and seal ) works very well on wood. This is the way I did it…
- First I visualized the butterfly wings and made a marking with pencil. Other than that everything else is as it comes to my mind.
- But once I paint something on one side I would replicate the design on the other side too.
- After I finished the whole butterfly, I let it dry for about 15 minutes.
- As the colours are light pastel colours I decided to decorate it with few embellishments I had on hand. I used normal craft glue (fevicryl) which dries quickly.
- I gave another 1 hour for a complete dry.
- I could have left it like that but decided to apply two layers of Modpodge to give nice varnish effect and also good shine. Took about 2 tbsp of Modpodge into a small bowl and applied it to the dried art with a foam brush. I applied two coats giving 1 hour to dry between the coats. For those of you who are new to Modpodge, it is a kind of glue which can be used for decoupage techniques as it dries clear and to give nice varnish effect.
Decorating the Butterfly is done!!
