Es 1 de Mayo, felicidades a todos los trabajadores, sobre todo, si el trabajo que tenéis os da para vivir dignamente, también está dedicada a los que teniendo trabajo no llegáis a final de mes, a nuestros licenciados universitarios que ponen copas en el extranjero, a nuestros mayores que vuelven a sacar adelante a las familias con sus míseras pensiones... y por su puesto, a aquellos que estáis desempleados.
Os deseo muchísimo ánimo y suerte en vuestros proyectos.
Today I bring you a scene with dedication.
It is May 1, Labour Day, congratulations to workers, especially if the work you have gives you the possibility of living with dignity; it is also dedicated to those who having a job do not make ends meet; to our graduates that serve drinks abroad, our elders returning to provide for their families with a paltry pension … and specially to jobless.
I wish you encouragement and good luck in all your projects.
The scene represents a corner of Paris, in the middle of the last century, where a beautiful wisteria grows and gives its name to this family guesthouse.
The first thing I made were the stairs. The structure is foam board, and it is civered with plastic putty. When it has dried I put the wooden steps and I painted with gesso the whole structure and then painted.
The wall whith the door is made of 1 cm foam board, on the other wall I have worked in the same way, but directly on the MDF because the window will appear boarded.
He pintado con esponja, y para proteger el color, un par de capas de alkil y polvos de talco para eliminar brillos.
I glued some wood pieces imitating bricks and ornaments, then I applied plastic putty on some areas and also gesso.
I painted with a sponge, and to protect the color I applied a couple of layers of plastic varnish and talcum powder to remove shines.
At the bottom of the facade there is a skylight which jewelry filigree. To set it I used wire and cold welding glue of two components.
The floor is made with plastic putty and a template imitating stone slabs. I painted black and gray and when dry Alkil and talcum powder.
I painted dark those areas behind the glasses of the window and the door, to suggest depth. I have assembled the three MDF.
I painted the wood beige and I have applied bitumen wax for aging and eye shadow to darken some areas. Then I glued the stairs
Welding galvanized wire I made the railing of the stairs. To get the curve form, you can help you with a board over the wire and bending it gently.
I have set an ornament jewelry on the railings, and I painted with black spray paint and then I added the effects of rust with acrilic paintings.
To make the building's corbel, I have lined a peace of wood with tin and I have placed small wooden slats also covered with tin and painted with acrilic paint and a sponge. Then I protected it with acrilic barnish.
I made two holes in the floor and in the wall, and I glued the handrails with a strong adhesive.
I added some details such as the doorbell, the handle, the number of the house, two flowerpots, a cat, the post... and the wisteria on the right.
Para hacer la glicinia he utilizado unos trozos de alambre fino de una botella de vino, forrados con papel verde de hacer flores. He pintado a esponja un folio de color malva por los dos lados y otro de verde.
To make the wisteria I used a few pieces of thin wire from a bottle of wine, covered with green paper to make flowers. I havepainted two sheets of paper in mauve and green.
With some flowers paper punch of different sizes, I cut many flowers that I moistened and treated with two burnishing tools tin. I have also done little balls of paper to the tips.
I glued around the wire the small paper balls first, then the little flowers and finally the bigest.
The trunk of the wisteria is made of thicker wire lined and painted, and he hung bunches of flowers tied with green paper, we will use these knots and bows to place one by one the green leaves of the plant.
La parte de dentro está llena de masilla negra de secado al aire y en ella he clavado varios grupos de flores.
The big pot is made of cardboard, covered with wall plastic putty and an ornament made with a paper puch . Then painted with gesso and acrylic paints.
The inside is filled with black putty air drying where I glued several groups of flowers.
I used a Led lamp previously oxidized with acrylic paint. They come without panes, so I glued four plastic sheets, one of them pretend to be a broken pane.
Someone came cycling with a bouquet of flowers and a bag with bread, a bottle of wine and some vegetables, in the meantime the cat stares at the bag.
I hope you'll have a great Labour Day! despite everything, and ofcourse a good weekend!
