Retro Style Floor Hanger

Retro style floor hangerdo-it-yourself is a classic floor hanger, decorated using aging techniques.

Materials and tools:

  1. clothes rack;
  2. Acrylic primer
  3. Love2Art rice paper "Notes";
  4. glue for decoupage;
  5. paraffin candle
  6. sandpaper;
  7. acrylic paint (dark brown);
  8. finish lacquer;
  9. spatula;
  10. curly scissors;
  11. synthetic brushes.

Step 1

Before you start decorating, you must remove the old varnish from the surface of the hanger. We use sandpaper for this.

Step 2

We erase dust after sanding and cover the entire surface of the hanger with white acrylic primer. We are waiting until it is completely dry. After that, choose a place on the surface of the hanger, where we will imitate rubbing. At these places, apply a layer of dark brown acrylic paint. We are waiting for drying.

Step 3

After the paint dries, rub these places with a paraffin candle. We shake off the paraffin pellets from the surface.

Step 4

We paint the whole hanger with white color, remembering those places that were rubbed with paraffin. After the white acrylic paint has dried, we peel the top layer of paint in these places with a small metal palette knife. You can also use sandpaper or a sanding sponge.

Step 5

Take the rice paper "Notes" from Love2Art and cut into fragments of suitable size. We use for this curly scissors to make openwork edges, like a postage stamp.

Step 6

Now paste the prepared pieces of Love2Art rice paper to the surface of the hanger. We use for this decoupage glue and a flat synthetic brush. Wait until the glue dries.

Step 7

Next, in order to protect the surface of the hanger from contamination and abrasion, apply several layers of water-based (acrylic) topcoat. Let each layer dry for 2-3 hours. Sand each layer after drying with fine-grained sandpaper or a sanding sponge.
