STAIN GLASS PAINTING


MATERIALS NEEDED:
Glass
Pattern
Glass colour
Glass Liner
Brush
palette-to mix colours
Tissue paper- to clean
Water- to wash the brush
Cello tape - to stick the pattern
Scissors- to cut cellotape

METHOD:

1)Stick the design to a clean glass with cello tape.
2)Draw the out line of the design with the liner.(i made a cone and filled it with liner,since it is easy to hold and also i prefer to have a thin outline)And let it dry.
3)Now fill in the desired colours using the brush.(dip the brush and just drop the pain and spread it little by little with the tip of the brush.DO NOT paint like normal painting)
4)Let the paint dry and the frame it.

NOTE:There r 2 varieties of liners and colours :water based and solvent based.never use solvent based colour/liner along with water based colour/liner ie., if using water based liner use water based colours. There r opaque colour and transparent stain glass colour. if u c the first photo it was done with transparent colour(except the body)and framed with crushed aluminium foil underneath, while the second painting was done with opaque colour.
