简介:制作自己的油布|DIY防水户外彩旗

About: Multi-crafter, jewellery maker, card designer and frequent procrastinator.

I wanted to make some bunting that was suitable for keeping outside, and during my research I came across a way of making your own traditional oil cloth using boiled linseed oil.

这在现代塑料的油布上的优势是它看起来并不像塑料,并保持织物的灵活性。

Usually oil cloth is used for waterproof bags, clothing, luggage, tents and so on.

Not many ingredients are required, and it's a very simple process, so I hope you'll give it a go!

第1步:你需要什么

The main ingredients for making oil cloth are煮亚麻籽油andmineral spirits;油是使织物防水的原因,并且需要矿物质烈酒使油干燥(否则它会保持湿润/粘性)。

煮沸的亚麻籽油通常用作木材项目的饰面。

对于我制造的彩旗数量,我需要不超过50ml.of each of these liquids. I also chose to use the无味version of mineral spirits to make it more pleasant for me!

I also used the following items:

-Breathing mask, gloves, ventilation等混合液体时的安全。

-Fabric;You need to use a sturdy woven fabric (not stretchy) for this. I used a cotton canvas. (Close weave) linen is also an option.

-油漆;If you wish to paint a design on the fabric. You can also use oil dyes.

-画笔

——如果你希望土豆打印模式,你会的need a土豆, 一种knifeand acutting mat.

- Some kind of在king/painting tray这对你的织物碎片进入并拥有一个liparound the outside. If the fabric you want to turn into oil cloth is too big or you don't have a tray (or suitable plastic packaging) you can just use a宽画笔to paint on the oil mixture whilst the fabric is on a protective滴布or similar.

-Measuring cup;我使用了一次性涂料混合杯。

-可密封的玻璃或金属容器;I used a glass jar with a lid.

-Pegs& 一种washing line

-粉色剪刀;To cut out the fabric pieces with, to help prevent fraying. You could instead choose to hem the bunting with a sewing machine if you wish, but that would be time consuming.

-String/twine;我用了黄麻缠绕。您可以使用诸如偏置绑定(如果您希望的话,您也可以防水)。

-Super glue or a sewing machine & thread;你可以用胶水ora sewing machine to attach the bunting to the string. I used an all-purpose (UHU) adhesive.

-Ruler

-Fabric penorsewing pins

-剪刀

-钢笔铅笔

-Piece of paper

Step 2: Make the Template

对于我的彩旗,我决定了三角形的大小约为5“x 7”,但我需要额外的1英寸长度来折叠在顶部的绳子上。所以我在a上测量了5“x 8”纸片和切割矩形。

I then folded this rectangle vertically down the centre (so the fold was at the 2.5" halfway point).

I could then, whilst keeping the paper folded, cut a single line, corner to corner, to produce a symmetrical triangle.

最后,在三角形的前1英寸上,我切断了角落。这是这样,当这1英寸的织物折叠后来,它不会从前面看到。

第3步:切出织物

照片显示了2种方式,取决于您是否有“魔术/消失”的面料笔或只是缝纫针脚:

1)Just draw around the paper template using arulerand织物笔, then cut the shape out with粉色剪刀.

or

2)the template to the fabric and cut around the shape with粉色剪刀.

尝试通过将形状切断在一起时尽量减少织物的浪费。

I cut out 7 triangle shapes in total.

Step 4: Printing & Painting

它是完全可选的,可涂上织物,或者实际上是土豆印刷它,特别是因为马铃薯印刷不是一种准确的涂料手段(!)。使用油染料也是装饰手段的选项。

要制作印刷模式,我首先在马铃薯中切割了简单的线条形状,并在墨水托盘中放一些白色油漆。我用廉价的画笔将涂料涂抹在土豆上用它打印,也可以直接涂在面料上。

Remember to protect your work surface from the paint during this stage.

Oil paint takes a long while to dry (anywhere from 24 hours to weeks depending on the paint brand, the temperature, humidity etc). So just leave your fabric until the paint is touch dry before continuing to the next stage.

Step 5: Turning the Fabric Into Oil Cloth

I used a breathing mask and gloves during this step, and also did it outside for best ventilation.

I placed a fabric piece on my inking tray, and then measured out the liquids.

The key is to mix equal parts mineral spirits and boiled linseed oil. I used 100ml of each (using my disposable measuring cup to measure them out), but this turned out to be at least twice as much as I needed. So start with a smaller amount, because you can always mix more later.

I poured the 100ml of each into a glass jar and mixed thoroughly with a lollipop stick. The reason for putting it in a sealable glass or metal container is so that you can then keep and store any remainder inside this container. You shouldn't store it in a plastic container. Always read the instructions on the packaging for more info about safety.

然后将一些混合物倒入着纸张托盘上,进入织物件上。织物应该浸泡液体。我来回倾斜托盘,直到所有的织物饱和,然后我挂在洗涤线上。

为每件作品执行此操作。

如果您没有锁定托盘(或足够大的托盘),则可以将织物涂抹在滴布上,并用宽阔的平坦的画笔将液体涂上。

然后将织物留在外面彻底擦干。这可能需要一两天或两周到几周,具体取决于使用的天气和织物。

Step 6: An Important Safety Note

煮沸的亚麻籽油随着它的干燥而加热,特别是如果它在一块已经被皱起来/折叠的材料上,或者放入封闭的空间,则可以激烈。这导致火灾所以请非常小心!

所以重要的事情是:

- Let the fabric dry outside, and make sure the fabric is laid out (or hung)平面,而不是折叠ed or crumpled up.

-Dryany other items that have had linseed oil on them outside too,之前洗它们或处置它们。这包括纸巾,织物抹布,滴布等。

-Storeany remaining liquids in their original containers or in a metal (or glass) container.

- Always read the instructions on the packaging.

- Keep items with linseed oil onfrom anything flammable until fully dry.

- 如果它开始下雨,所以您无法将面料存储在外面,将织物放在凉爽的房间内的不易燃表面上,通风,直至完全干燥。

谢谢 :)

第7步:组装彩旗

从第一张照片中,您可以看到现在的水不会被吸收到织物中。成功!

I then used super glue to fold over and secure the top section of each triangle of fabric, so that it covered the twine, but allowed the twine to still move through the fabric.

Leave to dry.

Step 8: Finished!

You can now display your bunting in pride of place in your garden!

我希望你喜欢这种指示,谢谢你的阅读:)

    Question10 months ago onIntroduction

    I have a beautiful fabric that I need to weather proof. I’m covering a large pleather ottoman that will remain outside most of the year. Will the linseed method be the best way to go or should I choose a Mexican oil cloth? Thank you!!!!

    Hi! I would personally recommend Mexican oil cloth to be honest, as you'll want something wipe clean if it's staying outside for most of the year. Having my oil cloth outside for over a year in soggy England took it's toll in terms of getting dirty, and even though water beads on the surface, it isn't wipe clean because the texture of the fabric is retained - so is hard to keep clean. Thanks for reading :)

    Thank you for sharing this, and congrats for winning! I just love simple, practical "old-time" projects like this that make use of readily available materials & tools to make something fun and creative. When I was a child we did this on a plain piece of canvas (painter's drop cloth?) to make a picnic ground-cover. We used a big paint brush to saturate the canvas with the linseed oil. Your potato stamps came out better than mine! Later a friend made a yurt and waterproofed it with linseed oil.

    Thank you for this! I'm planning on treating a duster I made many years ago out of denim. I'd thought of using re-proofing cream, but this would probably be better.

    爱这个DIY,谢谢。除了防水之外,这会如何影响面料?我希望织物比以前更硬,更重。你的旗布如何由太阳风化?它是否偶然有助于抵抗户外紫外线伤害?最早的紫外线伤害迹象是色彩衰落。

    I haven’t done thorough testing yet - the bunting has been in my garden only a few weeks - but I will update if I notice any fading etc.
    The main effect is that the colour of the fabric darkens, and perhaps it becomes slightly heavier and less soft/flexible. Only very minor differences though.

    Thank you for this instructable. I was thinking about an oil cloth tablecloth for camping but it would obviously be very large. Do you think you could fold the fabric so it fits in a smaller tray and soak it with the oil mixture that way? I loved your bunting idea.

    Thank you :) I think you could definitely do that but you’d have to make sure the tablecloth was completely spread out until dry - and isn’t kept folded up at all after the initial quick soak. I hope you have a go!

    How long did you let the fabric soak? (FYI - you should have made this two lessons. Too much info on the bunting mixed in with the oil cloth. Don't care about the bunting. The oil cloth is the draw.)

    我只是让油深通过织物浸泡,这发生在几秒钟内 - 无需将织物浸泡浸泡长。

    You don't really need to soak the cloth. Just get it covered in oil all over.

    Nice idea,why not use regular linseed oil?

    从我读到的(有关木工),这也应该干燥,它只需要更长时间。

    Boiled linseed oil simply dries quicker, that's the only reason :)

    “煮”亚麻籽油,你从当地的五金店购买或家庭商店可能尚未煮沸。它优于生亚麻籽油的原因是添加化学干燥剂。通常是石化物质。

    .

    There is no problem with it for most people but neither is it completely harmless. Some people can have reactions to it. Rare, but it does happen.

    .

    For the purpose you are using it for; it should be fine.

    .

    For those people that do have a reaction; they should look for food grade linseed oil.
