Glass painting tutorial II

Hello buddies 🙂

One more tutorial on Glass painting 🙂 If you missed my previous glass painting tutorial check it out here Basic Glass painting tutorial. This time also I have used similar technic but with little variations. Ok lets move straight to the tutorial.Glass painting

Supplies :

  • Glass for painting (any size of your choice)
  • A design to be copied
  • Glass paint (Water based)
  • Glass Out-liner (black)
  • Gold outliner
  • Gold 3D Liner

My Method :

  1. The procedure is same as the previous tutorial.
  2. Place the glass on top of the design printout and secure the design printout and glass in place on a flat surface using painters tape or cellophane tape.Tape
  3. Then trace the outline with black glass outliner.
  4. Additionally for the design I have chosen I used Gold outliner and and 3D Gold glitter for the jewelry and few glitters on the dress part.
  5. 3D glitters are same as glitter powders but they are premixed with glue thats the difference.
  6. You can also sprinkle the glitter powder directly on glass colour when it is wet.The wet paint will act as a glue.
  7. Once the outline tracing and glittering is done let it dry for half and hour.Glass outliner
  8. Once it is dry fill the glass paint on it. All these are almost the same steps I did in my first tutorial.
  9. A new addition this time is I tried applying acrylic colours on glass.acrylic paint
  10. Yes I couldn’t get Skin colour and papaya orange in Glass paint so I tried acrylic colours and It worked 🙂
  11. I told you in my previous tutorial that don’t apply second coat once the paint is dry. But this time I myself tried it because I wanted the dress folds in the design to look darker So I applied second coat along the folding partsDouble coating
  12. It didn’t look good initially But once completed I realised it was actually not a bad idea to give second coats 🙂 From long distance I got the effect I expected 🙂
  13. And once completed filling colours let it dry for 30 to 40 mins
  14. Once dry reverse the glass and Frame it.
  15. This time I didn’t add crushed silver foil behind the design instead I added a simple blue chart. Because I wanted the design to dominate and the glittery details to be seen clearly.Glass painting
  16. Frame it ! Hang it ! 🙂 How do you like it ?

Name Frame

Hurray finally the first Post!! 🙂

Nowadays though every one of us have a camera, when it comes to getting clicked our profile picture all of us will be excited. Everyone likes to display their best Pictures now you can do that in facebook. Still having a hard copy of your framed picture is always special. Now that’s where our project comes into picture. Yes you guessed it right we will make a photo frame as our first project, but with a sweet twist 🙂 .  How about having a unique photo frame for your best picture, that even spells your name!! Ok enough of the ado let’s get our hands dirty. First Things first (Exactly)Name Frame

Things you will need:

  •        Card stock
  •        Scissors
  •        Craft knife
  •        Acrylic paint
  •        Paint Brushes
  •        Transparent OHP sheet
  •        Of course Your best Picture 🙂things

Instructions:

The basic idea is enlarging one letter of your name then fitting your photo inside that. For example the letter “O” will make a pretty frame. But what if “O” is not present in your name, don’t worry if you are creative enough you can fit your photo in any of the letters.Now choose a letter from your name to fit your picture.

  1. First step is “Designing your frame” You can use Photo shop/MS Power point to do this or the hard way is to draw it by hand.I did a minuscule frame for the name “Lakshmi”and I chose the letter “h” for the frame.lakshmi
  2. Print each letter of your name in your desired font and size. Example I used “Cooper Black” font for the letter “L”. This would print to a size of approximately 3 cm. Design your letters with different fonts with different sizes, you can also toggle between CAPS and small letters. The size of the “h” (the picture letter) should be double the size of other fonts.
  3. After printing your letters use it as templates and cut them in the card stock (you can also use old cereal boxes/greeting cards instead of card stock)cutting letters
  4. Arrange the letters overlapping each other. This is up to your creativeness. After arranging link/stick all the letters using glue.
  5. Now you got the overall shape of your Name. Stick the whole thing on a OHP sheet and cut out the outline shape of your name. This would help to hold all the letters together and a protective cover for the photo inside the “h”.
  6. Paste your photo behind “h” cut out the “h” in a thick cardboard and paste it behind your photo. This cardboard will keep your frame upright.
  7. Now our frame is almost done we just have to add a small stand behind the “h” to make our frame stand alone. Fold a thick card 3 cm width and 10 cm length like this “/\” and attach it behind “h” (the picture letter)Frame back side
  8. Now paint and colour your name Decorate it with all your imagination.You can even do   the painting before arranging the letters.
