It began with the idea of ​​the creation of new posts tales KrutoKrysa place another pond on the site, which would become not only an ornament main entrance to the garden, but also a fertile oasis for the collection of water lilies - nymphs.And when these conditions are suitable for the site was chosen, a plastic bowl pond installed, and electricity for lighting okoloprudovoy territory is supplied, it is time to begin to build a fairy tale with their own hands.The storyline of this story luxury delicate nymphs born nature, lived in the neighborhood with the new "class" no less beautiful water lilies that have emerged out of the hands of new posts.Water lilies are not only emphasized the beauty of their sisters in the pond, but also emits a soft, gentle light, illuminating the border of the pond its golden stamens.

Towards a miracle, we must prepare well.For this we need materials:

  • Metal mesh with a minimum mesh size
  • wire diameter 3 mm
  • Plitonit With
  • Water
  • Glass mosaic
  • LEDs 12 v, color: yellow, the number corresponds to the number of stamens
  • Wire cross-section required for LEDs
  • photorelay
  • shrinkable tubing yellow
  • Epoxy adhesive
  • Painting Hammerite green
  • Form tracks
  • Water-resistant grout green

Needlewoman KrutoKrysa, having considerable experience in creating both the flatnessand volume objects from the mosaic, easily developed a constructive solution for terry nymphs surrounded by leaves as if floating on the surface of the water.To create the petals and leaves of water lilies was decided iskolzovat metal grid with the smallest cell to the substrate at her tile adhesive, it was held on the future of the petal, without falling into the cells of the grid.

for strength and stability of the metallic grid in an upright position in the center of each lobe preform future KrutoKrysa decided to attach the wire 3 mm.

wire creates a frame flexing that can make the future a wide variety of natural flower shapes from unopened buds to lily in full dissolution.

After making the required number of pieces of petals and leaves for the future of water lilies, as well as give them a natural shape, you can start otdelyvaniyu metal mesh mosaic.Why glass mosaic, rather than, for example, ceramic tile has been selected for the production of flowers.Here is the answer to this question new posts KrutoKrysy "Glass mosaic shimmers beautifully at the slightest light even more beautiful after the rain, and perfectly conveys the atmosphere of the reservoir and residents."

to enjoy drawing and color transitions seemed the most natural mosaic, the distance between plitochki reduced to a minimum.

Mosaic mounted on a metal grid on both sides with a thin layer of glue inflicted Plitonit S.

KrutoKrysa recommends the release of metal wire beyond the lamina of a metal mesh.This will not only facilitate the assembly of the flower, but will firmly secure nymphs in the cement base composition.

Metal "stalks" of leaves left in the open air, it is recommended to protect the paint on metal, for example, Nammerite.

For manufacturing base for the flower used to form tracks.After drying the solution, 2 weeks after his fill vacancies base KrutoKrysa recommended to treat water-resistant grout.

Before finally fixing the nymphs in the form of a cement base in the center of each flower add yellow LEDs, which leads from hiding in yellow heat shrink tubing.If necessary, further germeteziruya epoxy glue.This will allow the nymphs to cover the pond throughout the year.

KrutoKrysa created this enchanting tale in his garden, and we just have to enjoy the fruits of her hands and thanked for displayed a master class, try to make this marvelous story on its site.
