Recently, my husband accidentally broke a sugar bowl from my great-grandmother's service. Imperial Porcelain Factory and all that. It is a pity, of course, was very. But the fragments turned out to be so artistically fragmented that they immediately inspired one idea, which I immediately began to embody, because inspiration is a very inconstant thing and you need to catch it while it is hot!
In general, you will need:
- grinding head;
- nozzle "metal brush";
- protection (a scarf or a mask on the nose and eye glasses).
We need to turn a shard from a sugar bowl into a cabashon! To do this, drill (I have Dremel) grind sharp edges. I took the "grinding stone" and sharpened all the piercing and cutting, trying not to hurt the drawing.
Angle before processing. They can break the thread and it can not be sheathed.
After processing, the corners smoothed out.
It is necessary to “smooth out” all sides of the splinter. Then the nozzle "metal brush" processed surface. Since the sugar bowl was in the form of a ball, it was necessary to grind off the surface, which we will attach to the fabric so that it is smoother and more even.
I paste the cabochon to the fabric using Moment-Crystal. The adhesive is excellent, transparent and invisible when dried.
After one "cabochon" is sheathed, I stick two more on the sides, and I take different forms, firstly, because it was the way the sugar bowl broke, and secondly, I consider this a special highlight.
When all cabochons are sheathed, I think what else can I add to get a more interesting picture. I add a couple of stone beads and trim them in the same way.
The decorative part is ready. Now we cut the excess fabric, glue the hard frame in the form of cardboard and sew.
Grandmother's sugar bowl is still destined to live!
Thanks for attention!
