A golden pineapple: South Sea glamour for home

09/12/2019 |

Eating ice cream in a winter jacket? Not with us! When it gets colder outdoors again, we will make it cosy indoors. But please, with style, elegance and a touch of glamour. Voila - we are presenting golden South Sea beauty in noble glamour. Our pineapple wall painting in gold, copper and a touch of champagne turns dull walls into glamorous eye-catchers. It looks as if from an interior magazine, however it is a self-made design. We will show you how it works.

 

Decently shimmering with that extra something: In the KREUL Acrylic Metallic Paints Set Glamour Living, precious gold, copper and cool silver encounter sparkling champagne and delicate rose gold. With a single coat, we will turn plain canvas into artwork and wooden boxes into jewellery boxes. The six colour shades combine perfectly or set spectacular accents on the background with the Chalky markers. And here we have an exotic fruit which is a delicacy. In the process of creation, the metallic paints will be decorated with lots of pigments. The result is not only finely glazed glittering shades but intensively opaque metallic shades.

It will be even more dramatic if metallic paint touches upon a dark contrast. That's why we have first primed the canvas of our pineapple wall painting with a matt blue-grey acrylic paint. Finally, precise work is required. The contours of the pineapple are sketched out on drawing paper or a template from the internet is printed out. Now transfer the pineapple motif onto the canvas. For that, put a copying paper underneath and trace every single line with some pressure.

The fruiting body of the pineapple is generously painted in gold. In doing so, leave the contours of every fruit element blank so that the blue-grey shade of the background creates the boundaries. Wow, how shimmering! There will be even more glamourous effect if the leaves of the pineapple are painted in copper gold and the single elements in light rose gold. Done!  The pineapple wall painting is shimmering in an especially noble way in the candlelight. It's good that it becomes dark earlier again.
