En homenaje a estos negocios he realizado una floristería con dos paneles de baldosas, y aunque la fachada no es de estilo modernista propiamente dicho, sí que bebe de esas fuentes.
There are less and less of these centenarians shops with tiles on the facade. I feel sad when this heritage is lost.
In tribute to these traditional shops I made a florist's with two panels of tiles. And although the facade is not modernist itself, it drinks from these sources.
Alfons Mucha sobre papel fotográfico.
Para proteger la tinta y evitar que se corra, he aplicado barniz acrílico en espray. Después he cuadriculado la imagen por detrás y he numerado los cuadrados para ir pegándolos en orden y ligeramente separados sobre una base de cartón pluma de 1cm de grosor con el diseño de la fachada dibujado.
I printed on photographic paper two drawings of the Czech artist Alphonse Mucha.
To protect the ink and prevent it to run, I applied acrylic spray varnish. Then I drew squares behind and numbered them to stick in order slightly separated on a cardboard with the design of the facade already drawn.
Cuando ha secado bien la cola, he aplicado un barniz llamado Diamond Glace que deja la superficie muy brillante y rellena los huecos.
I applied glue (which is transparent when it dries) over the entire surface to waterproof both the surface and the edges of the tiles.
When the glue has dried, I applied a varnish called Diamond Glace leaving the surface with a high gloss shine and the gaps filled
Once framed both pictures, I covered the facade with balsa wood and placed some jewelry ornaments.
I have also covered with wood the inside and painted inside and outside
After making the door, I have aged it woth wax, bitumen and eye shadows
Once I finished the facade I assembled the MDF boards with sticks. The back wall has wood at the bottom and decorated paper on top.
I made two foam board structures on both sides covered inside and outside with wood.
On the right side I put a closet to hide the battery but it was uncomfortable so I decide not to use it. Despite being useless, it brings a point of interest and breaks the homogeneity of the wall.
Con alambre galvanizado realicé un adorno para separar el escaparate de la tienda.
También pinté la parte derecha de la tienda de rojo, para así destacar más los objetos del escaparate.
I made with foam board and wood the desk of the window
With galvanized wire I made an ornament to separate the space of the shop window.
I also painted the right side of the store of red, in order to highlight the objects.
On the back I applied putty with a bricks template. I painted with different shades of red and a makeup sponge. I applied Alkil and then talcum powder matting. Some old posters give the final touch.
He adornado el techo y los laterales con diferentes maderas y le he dado el mismo tratamiento a todo el exterior con cera, betún de Judea y sombras de ojos.
The top of the shop is made of balsa wood 0.5 cm thick, and it has a small door to access to the battery, hidden in the vertical structure of the right.
I decorated the roof and sides with different woods and I gave the same treatment to all outside with wax, bitumen and eye shadows.
I've done some lamps with glass jars, laces and wire. You can visit here more tutorials about lamps
After placing them on the roof with masking tape, I lined the ceiling with wooden boards and some beams and stained in oak color.
I've drawn the letters in a board and I painted gold.
All the buckets and jugs for flowers are made with watercolor paper, there are placed in the shop window and outside the shop I put more stuff.
I have made the flower pots with air dry clay and the base of a box of bombons as mould.
On the shutter I hanged two cameos as slate boards.
And on the floor lot of boxes, flowers and potted plants.
