I decided to alter a tie for my man. its a gray wool one i picked up at Goodwill a few years ago. very plain.
I asked him to pick an image and of course he had to pick one that looked very difficult.
but after breaking it down it wasn't so bad. so I will show you how.
Step 1: create your stencil
after looking at the image we realized it can be broke down it some basic shapes- 4 'pie pieces'; the star of david= 2 triangles 1 pointing up, 1 pointing down; a star; an upside down moon. we used computer paper, cuz thats all we had.
When i cut out the stencil i accidently cut out the little pieces. but saved them.
for the star its easy to fill in the spots. You can probably see what i mean when comparing the original to the stencil.
Step 2: paint on the 'pie pieces'
sorry no pic. we had drew them with perm marker first, you may or may not want to do that. if u want to drawing it on with a pen might be better. i think the next time i won't draw it in first.
Step 3: paint on the upside down triangle
Step 4: Paint on the right-side-up triangle
now the star of David is complete.
Step 5: Paint on the star
Step 6: Paint on the upside-down half moon
This is the Current finished look- all dry
Now we think its missing something, seems too dark.
i want to outline it and probably fill in the blanks but im not sure which color i want to use.
these are my available options:
What do you guys think would be the best color?
