12 kinds of paintings for the interior with their own hands

Pictures for an interior by own hands

The decor completes the decoration of the house, but the most exciting and creative stage begins with it. In modern interior solutions, it has become fashionable to replace the purchased items with ones created by oneself. The handmade technique is becoming stunningly popular. Veshchitsy not only make for themselves, but also give to relatives, and especially talented masters even sell works. If open shelves can be made souvenirs brought from travel and cute little things (vases, statuettes), then the decoration of the walls sometimes puzzles. Usually a layer of putty, and then plaster or wallpaper is applied to their surface. However, "solid" walls, even with beautiful coatings, still seem "bare" and create a feeling of incompleteness.

Learn the technique, determine the level of complexity of the work you like, select the necessary materials. But, perhaps, the most important thing is to correctly assess your abilities and talents of the decorator. If your level is below average, close to the initial, then it is better to sample the pen on simple options. One desire is not enough, the full set includes more talent and skill. If the latter comes with time after persistent practical studies, then the absence of a gift can not be fully compensated by diligence. Muse, as you know, a lady with a character and on the first call does not come. The sacrament of her call does not imply special rites. Each person has his own sources of inspiration, but most of us derive it from nature: its smells, sounds and species. Whether it's a tree, a floral bouquet, bird trills, the flavors of freshly cut grass, the play of sunrays on glass or the tentacles of fog in the morning field. This source of inspiration is inexhaustible. To it it is possible to pridadat constantly.

For abstract art is not typical of the surrounding reality. This direction of art conveys the perception of the world by the author. To a greater degree, abstractness is obsessed with the feelings of a person who has already seen or heard something and decided to share it with others with this revelation. In traditional painting, viewers are offered to interpret the composition themselves, which is appreciated for the accuracy of the transmission of colors and lines. Abstractness does not force the artist to hyperrealism, so the art form is suitable for beginners. At the heart of the canvas often lie geometric patterns, broken or rounded lines, strange color combinations, vague silhouettes. For paintings with blurry features use watercolor, as it perfectly conveys a similar mood. To get more precise details, take acrylic, tempera or gouache. The latter is much cheaper, so it is suitable for the first timid attempts to find oneself in the world of art.


Light picture

Light paintings effectively look at night, they also perform the function of decorative lamps. Prepare a pattern with a pattern. Each element is cut out separately and its contours are transferred to a sheet of plastic. Do not recommend using a completely transparent material, but a solid sheet of MDF is not suitable. Find the average option that will let light through. The picture should have several levels, for the volume effect, so the composition of plastic parts are crushed into layers. Between them, strips of foam are laid. All layers are glued to each other and to the substrate. After drying, it is inserted into the frame. On the flip side, a special groove under the wire is cut in it. Then the RGB tape is stretched along the perimeter. A slot is required for the output of the controller. The picture is ready to evaluate its beauty enough to turn off the light and press a couple of buttons on the control panel.

Picture of threads

Twenty years ago these works became a new word in art. You will need a wooden base, small carnations, a hammer and thread. First, of course you need to sketch the canvas. Then the carnations are clogged on its contour. The distance between them usually does not exceed 0.5 cm. The closer the carnations stand to each other, the less "voids" are formed in the picture. Begin to advise with simple forms to fill your hand. Then take the first thread, carefully fix it and begin to wrap each carnation. Individual modules are made in different colors. In another technique, use thick woolen threads. On the substrate with the pattern applied, they begin to be glued. The end of the thread is attached to the center of the element and begins to wrap around it, forming concentric circles. Finished canvases are soft, bulky and pleasant to the touch.

Stylish pictures-silhouettes

Perhaps, this is the best option for those who know how to draw only flowers on the back pages of notebooks. Paintings-silhouettes are universal and resemble both classical styles and modern. Do them from paper, use paint or a marker. To make such an element it is enough to prepare the source code. The sample is transferred to the canvas independently or duplicated from the template, and then painted over. In order to obtain a silhouette from the usual portrait for the source, it is necessary to correct the contrast settings in any unpretentious program-photoshop.

To create eco-paintings use any natural materials: pieces of wood, twigs, stones, grass, leaves, moss. The components are glued to a dense base and placed in a frame. Unusually and beautifully look triptychs, consisting of several modules. For example, the basis of the decor is three colors: gray, black and purple. Take the dry branches and divide each transverse into three parts. The lowest "bundle" is tightly fastened with a thread. It is painted in violet, glued to a black canvas and surrounded by a gray frame. The next module will be slightly smaller. Inside the violet frame, the second part of the black branches on the gray canvas is provided, which serves as a continuation of the previous composition. The last module consists of "tops". The branches are painted in gray, placed in a black frame on a canvas of purple. The triptych is placed vertically with a displacement in one direction. It is not recommended to cover a similar composition with glass, as its relief looks natural and organic. Peculiar paintings of moss can decorate the bedroom or hall. Art object will bring harmony into the room, make it more peaceful.

Picture from paper

Work with paper is represented by a variety of techniques. In recent years, a real "boom" survived quilling: the creation of images using ribbons, twisted in a special way. The finished product turns out to be volumetric, and the hand-woven masters can recreate huge canvases with accuracy in small details. You can also make a relief coating of papier-mache (soaked paper pulp). The canvas is painted on top and placed in a frame. From the material, separate elements are created in the origami technique, which are then glued to the substrate. Great looking modular paintings of small paper pieces, folded into three-dimensional triangles or squares in the same technique.

Picture from beans

For products of this type, perhaps the shortest master class. All that is required for work, so this is the basis, cereals (legumes can not be limited) and glue. Draw a sketch on the canvas. Then its individual parts are smeared with glue, and on top of it a loose decor is applied. You can use not only beans chickpeas or peas, but also pasta, rice, buckwheat, coffee beans and even salt.

Picture from foam plastic

Fabrics made of polystyrene are made in two popular techniques. Both types use foamed plastic solely as a base, for the decoration of which a fabric is needed. The first method will allow creating abstractions that will emphasize interior features with complex geometry. On a special form of foam (more often square) impose whole pieces of tissue with different patterns. Cloth is cut at the edges, which are wrapped to the back side of the base and fixed on it (clips or glue). In the frames of such pictures do not need. On the wall are usually painted compositions from several canvases. Another technique - kinosuiga will require more patience. On the foam base is applied a pencil drawing. Start with simple geometric patterns. Then follow the contour with a clerical knife. Fabric patches are slightly larger in size than the element itself, superimposed on it. Their edges are pressed into the notches by a thin, flat tool (metal ruler, nail file) in such a way that there are no wrinkles on the surface. After a simple picture is ready you can try more complex images with "ragged" features. It is important to know. The technique of kinusayga, as it becomes clear from the title, appeared from Japan. Usually, in this way, tissues from old kimonos were used again, which are not accepted to be thrown away.

3D picture

To create three-dimensional paintings use any materials that have a relief. However, paintings from silk ribbons, leather and foamiran look more elegant. The better the element will keep the shape, the easier it is to compose the composition. From the skin can get very accurate pictures. Separate pieces of fabric are simply glued to the substrate, while retaining folds for volume. From silk ribbons create luxurious bouquets. Advantage of the material in its compliance: it is enough to fix the fabric in a certain position with threads, and it will preserve it. Some achieve volume by duplicating the details. Usually paper products are made. Cut out two identical elements. To the front side of one attach a few "legs" of foam. They are glued to the inside of the second similar part. The effect of volume is obtained. The original technique looks like this in flat pictures, where individual sections become accentuated.

Almost everyone at one time gathered maple leaves in autumn parks and dried particularly beautiful flowers between pages of books. About the "secret" many people forgot and years later the find, accidentally falling, reminded of the times of a carefree youth. Flowers and leaves for the herbarium before drying should be dried. They are stacked between layers of rice paper or napkins. The material perfectly absorbs excess moisture. Then the components of the future herbarium, surrounded by several layers of cardboard, are placed under a press. Approximately a week will be enough for high-quality drying and leveling.


On the base, flowers and leaves are attached with glue for decoupage. The composition depends only on the imagination of the creator. These can be bouquets of wild flowers, decorated with silk ribbons or abstract paintings. To keep the canvas longer, it is covered with a layer of varnish or epoxy resin. Effectively look decorative canvases with sakura flowers on gouache-painted branches. Such a picture can decorate the interiors, decorated in Japanese style or minimalism.

Picture with beads and crystals

Products of beads and bugles are no surprise. Jewelery from them became popular some thirty years ago. For work it is better to get high-quality materials of the same size, which will help to make a neat picture. The best is the Yakut beads and Japanese tono. To create accent elements it is recommended to use cabochons of the appropriate colors. Semiprecious and precious stones are polished in a special way. As a result, they turn out to be convex, but with a flat base. Beaded paintings embroider. Instead of thread it is better to use a thin line: it is stronger and more reliable. Pictures of crystals are sold in sets. The standard set includes crystals in individual bags under the numbers, two types of tweezers, a tray for small parts, a special glue bar, into which a dip stick is pressed to press the "diamonds" against the canvas, and a canvas with an image applied to it. Each package contains instructions. The canvas is pre-coated with a special sticky layer that perfectly holds the crystals. The latter can be round or square. Most canvases are continuous without voids, but sometimes on a spectacular black background create brilliant drawings, outlines of animals, birds, people. The ready work is covered with a cloth and fixed, passing the rolling pin over the surface with effort. The main advantage of crystal paintings: they do not fade unlike embroidery and will retain their original appearance even after years.

Decor of beads, too, should be done according to the finished scheme. It can be found on the Internet or buy in special shops for needlewomen.

Pictures on the fabric

Tissue paintings are usually made of shreds. Begin the work by pulling the liner-base on the stretcher. The procedure is carried out neatly, avoiding the formation of unnecessary wrinkles. Then, drawing a pencil on the canvas. If you do not possess the talent of the artist, then you can use the template. Sold even special sets, where the canvas already has a pattern with numbered zones for individual colors. Then, you will need scissors, threads, needles and pieces of tissue for work. Scraps are cut according to the shape of the element, which they will "close" with small stocks and sewn to the base.

Pictures in the interior will become the center, the highlight of the situation. Original decorated decor can not be used as a background, it will attract other people's views. Trying yourself as a decorator once, many are not limited to this and continue creative experiments. When the scale of the work goes beyond the satisfaction of the personal need for decor, they begin to give to their relatives, and then even sell them as author's paintings.
