How to make a decorative folding Screen using my Proxxon tiny Tools
Finished Project Titled Happy Fall Ya,all
Designed by Misty Orlove
Materials used and needed
!. Suitable wood for screen, size your discretion.
Templet for making perfect curves. Not required but handy.
Krylon Crystal clear Spray
Plaid paints I used many colors which I will discuss later.
Wood burner (Optional)
Proxxon Delta sander
Proxxon Jig saw
proxxon tiny Table saw
The wood was measured to a size I wanted the screen to be and cut on the proxxon tiny table saw.
I then used the templet to add the curves to the wood.
Mark the curves on all boards
Cut the curves out using proxxon jig saw
Don't forget your mask when sanding or cutting.
Next a proper and careful sanding
using a proxxon delta sander
Using colors, you can choose your own favorites. I will share a few of the ones used throughout this project.
I started by drawing the design free hand on each board.
This was the progress on the design.
I chose to do the fence first, if had it to do again I would do background first.
Colors used for the fence
folk art Pickling Stormy Sky
and Folk art Steel Gray
For the sky I used
folk art Baby Blue mixed with True blue
I used Plaid Paints for the entire project. The Martha Stewart's paints were new to me. I really love them as well as the Pickling Paints. When I found the paint was a little thick for what I wanted I used an additive blender to thin to a suitable point. Love the coverage it gave me.
For the grass I used Plaid Paints Old Ivy and Thicket Green folk art paint. I added some Cinnamon to get shading and Apple Barrel Pale Daffodil by plaid for highlights.
I mixed colors to get the golden background & fields and also for the floating for pumpkins.
For the Pumpkins I used Martha Stewarts Blood Orange and Apple Barrel Pumpkin.
Blanco mimbre (white) was used throughout the project.
I completed the three boards
Almost Finished and adding hinges
Please feel free to use any design to fit this board can be used for all seasons. Can add two seasons, one on front one on back.
I just used a solid blue background.
This makes a great Christmas screen or Halloween witches and cats if you prefer.
The idea is to have fun and enjoy. Projects are easy using Proxxon tiny tools.
