DIY – Sunglasses Leopard

This week, Aimee offers sunglasses leopard to create your own! Tutorial in 6 steps.

The leopard, by keys, it is the touch of madness that complements a rock outfit ‘ no graou. Sunglasses, they are the perfect accessory for a bit of second degree. Together, the leopard and the sunglasses form our DIY of the day!

A tutorial to teach you how to transform any pair of “sunnies” in animal accessory – or why not even your eyeglasses? Because once you have mastered this print to the WOW effect, you’ll want to reproduce it everywhere!

Material:

 

  • Old glasses to customize
  • A set of three or four varnish: a clear base (here cream), a dark but harmonious color for points (here, coffee), a colour in contrast to highlight (yellow here) and a dark color for the outline (here black).
  • Thin brushes or nail-art (you have seen, my brushes and this DIY are cats for the other…)
  • The masking-tape or tape from painter to protect your glasses
  • Newspaper to protect your work required surface

 

Method:

 

Step 1: Protect your glasses with masking tape and cover your paper table.

Step 2: It’s time to ask your animal print database. So take the lightest color and cover the branches of the glasses and the contours of the glasses of this first varnish. You may need to come back several times for an opaque base, depending on the quality of your Polish as well as the base color of your glasses. Let dry between two layers varnish well.

Step 3: Put a drop of beige paint on paper and choose a flat brush. Do more or less coarse points along the branches and all around the glasses. Don’t worry not for the size or shape of your points, vary the pleasures…

 

It is precisely this jumbled effect which gives leo print. My only advice would be to exceed the share points and other branches and glasses, for printed to infinity effect. Dry these items.

Step 4: Once the dry spots, it’s time to make them stand out with a brighter color, yellow. Put a drop of yellow paint on the paper and choose a fine brush.

 

Iron over the edge of the points, without necessarily making the tour or to pay special attention to not exceed. Light but rough strokes will give a natural effect.

 

Do not panic if you have the impression that all this is very ugly, makes me the same impression of pasta everywhere whenever I launch into leopard print… It is when we drop the last layer of color that we recognize really the desired effect. Dry the varnish before moving on to the next step.

Step 5: Finally comes the time of filing the dark color that will give your print the character. Here, it should be all the way around – or almost – beige and yellow points. Indeed, you are not forced to work around to perfection – once again the ‘draft’ effect is essential.

 

Thin and broken lines are perfectly fine and sometimes even you can leave drooling a little bit your brush. If you feel the need to take the hand, train you on a paper before – even to the crayon – before begin you the customization of your glasses. Let dry and if you want even better fix everything, put a layer of transparent varnish.

Step 6: When your glasses are dry to dry… Remove the protective tape and put on your pretty custo home accessory. Clap clap!

 

And of course, for this project I am left in the idea of a classic leopard print nothing prevents you to try shades of pink, blue, orange… More work is colorful, the result will be pop and fun. Your brushes! And show me your most beautiful creations on Instagram: @oursite
