- rope weaving;

Each kind of weaving uses its technique and patterns of interlacing vines with the base. And the creation of the foundation is the beginning of any work.
The first thing that masters are recommended to doweaving, can be an ordinary basket. She will be helped by a small master class. Elena Tishchenko, by the way, in her blogs and on the video channel offers such step-by-step instructions to help novice masters of weaving. But where do we start to understand if this kind of needlework is interesting or is it better to do something else? Weave the first thing.
Newspaper tubes should be decomposed intoplane in this way: four side by side and four on top of the previous ones at an angle of 90 degrees, that is across. Another two tubes placed on top of the previous diagonally, to get an angle of 45 degrees, and two more exactly the same, but the other way. The result was a star-shaped base of 24 tubules of the base.
Now the tube, which will roll a basket,It is necessary to fold it in half, it basks on the base of the basket, grabbing two tubes of the stellate base. This moment must be strictly observed, so that the basket is strong enough: two tubes of one ray, again two tubes of this ray, then two separate tubes. So it repeats in a circle, until all the rays of the base are woven.
Weave in a circle to continue, until the bottombasket does not get the right diameter. Then on the bottom is put a suitable size bowl, saucepan without handles, a round box. Rays of the base are bent upwards, and the weaving continues already in height. Reception of weaving can be changed at will. When the height of the basket is the one you need - weaving ends. The first wicker thing with my own hands is ready from the paper vines.
How to decorate this world?
The master Elena Tischenko gives many usefuladvice to those who are keen on this kind of needlework. Wicker items can be painted and decorated with the help of the "decoupage" technique. One main advice: to make sure that the newsprint is well-colored, to obtain the desired color, the finished product should be primed. To do this, you can use acrylic primers of white color, sold in construction stores. You can make a primer according to Elena's recipe:
- 1 part acrylic interior paint white;
- 1 part of PVA glue;
- Water until a primer is obtained consistency of liquid sour cream.
Already the finished product is primed with a wide brush,unpainted small areas are then further passed by a small brush. During priming and painting, the finished product should not be strongly wetted, otherwise it will fall apart. After priming a wicker thing, you need to let it dry thoroughly. Then it is painted and decorated if desired. It is convenient to use napkins for decoupage, because they easily fall on any base, including the wicker surface.
