Candy of newspaper tubes

Greetings to all the masters and masters of manual creativity! More recently, I had no idea that from the most ordinary newspapers and magazines can get truly amazing things. A huge plus of this material is its availability and cheapness. Agree, because not everyone can afford to buy expensive "consumables". I bring to your attention a step-by-step master class for the production of candy, created from the most common newspaper tubes.

Materials:
So, from the materials we need newspapers or magazines - who has what. I twisted tubes from magazines, because from such a paper is not so dirty hands.
Glue. You can use ordinary PVA glue or polymer glue, glue stick is also suitable.
Office knife - with its help we will cut the strips.
Long knitting needle, it is desirable to choose a thicker one.
Paints. I used the antique bronze acrylic paint. You can use paint in cans, but I want to warn you in advance against using it at home.Of course, the color of the product is excellent, but, people, the apartment will stink awfully with acetone! It is best to carry out this procedure on the street, if weather conditions allow. Moreover, the paint dries quickly enough.
Decorative items for decorating candy. In my case, ordinary stitching rhinestones were used, which I glued with polymer glue at the end of my work.
The manufacturing process is as follows:
With the preparations finished, now is the time to start creating newspaper tubes.
The length of the paper can be any - it will hang from what you will twist the tubes. The longer the strip, the longer the tube will be. Strips in width, I did 5cm. I want to say right away that you need to wind up enough tubes. So you should be patient, I twisted when I watched the films - both the case and the benefit at the same time. Twist the tubes, preferably at an angle (about 30-35 degrees), then they turn out to be plastic and durable.

When you make a sufficient number of tubes, it will be possible to get down to the most interesting - to create your own masterpiece. Yes, yes, it is a masterpiece, because you will not find the second such vase anywhere!
1. First you need to make the bottom of the candy.I used a small flower pot as a blank. For work, I needed flat tubes, so I rolled them out with an ordinary kitchen rolling pin. Wrapping the shape of the tubes, well glue them well. I give time to dry.

2. Next, I fill out the mold. On the usual ballpoint pen I wind the tubes, I also periodically coat them with glue. Options how to fill the middle quite a lot. It all depends on your imagination and the size of the form.

3. I put the blank in the center, I glue round blanks from four sides. I give the opportunity to dry out the glue so that later, when the workpieces are fixed, they remain in their places. If your version of the vase has voids, they can be filled by turning circles or ovals, they also need to be glued.

4. Now it is necessary to wrap the whole workpiece with tubes, each layer is well smeared with adhesive. The voids in the form need to be filled. It is necessary to paste over the form in several layers, so that the next part could consolidate on it. In my case, its width was 1 cm. Everything should dry well.

5. Now, when I have a ready-made base of candy vats, you can start molding its walls.The easiest option would be to wind round billets of different sizes. I remind you, I twisted them on a ballpoint pen, each turn was coated with glue. If you continue to decorate the vase with rhinestones, then it is better to wind it on a thin base so that the hole is small, because then there will be nowhere to plaster glue or you will need to choose more decorative elements.

6. When the walls of the vase dry well, you can think about what her legs will be. Again, from the same round blanks of different sizes we form legs, in the form of a pyramid.
