Selection of materials

A handmade greeting card is not just a part of a gift, it’s a proof of A serious approach to the choice of a present. Such things are always individual and unique. Therefore, it is worth considering what you will make a postcard from. As a basis, you can use a simple album sheet or special double-sided paper, which is painted on each side in its own color. I would like to note that postcards made in the technique of figure carving look on this paper most effectively.However, if you do not have the opportunity to purchase such materials, and simple sheets from an album for drawing are not dense enough or look too simple, you can use watercolor paper, as was done in this master class. Watercolor paper is a little denser than landscape paper. the sheet has a pleasant porous structure and, moreover, you yourself can paint it in different colors without fear of deformation. Among other things, to cut out parts from such paper is quite simple, in contrast to too dense for this technique, cardboard. You can take any sequins, but preferably small or medium ones. The combination of several colors will look beautiful. We do not forget that the symbol of 2017 is a fiery rooster, therefore we select the appropriate color range. In addition, for the sparkles, we need a spatula or something that is convenient for them to be carefully poured onto paper. The PVA glue should be thick enough and not spread, and the brush for applying it is thin enough so that it is possible to apply the intended pattern. Separately, I want to say about the knife for cutting. It is best to use a special - mock-up, but even a simple clerical, or even a blade from it, will do.However, using a blade without a knife is quite traumatic, and if it just so happened that the knife broke and you urgently need to cut, be careful!
