VASTU/MIRROR PAINTING

Hi everyone,Posting my work after along gap..
I don't know what is the name given for this work.I call it Vastu ,since I wanted to keep this in the entrance of our house for vastu reason :)
When I was in chennai I used to visit all the art and craft exhibition that were being conducted in the city. 4 years back, just before leaving to US ,I went to a exhibition in alwarpet,chennai and one of the shop had paintings that were very glossy. When enquiring about the artist and the cost for teaching that work,i was told it would(i think) cost about 800 Rs(don't remember exact amount but something ranging from 500-1000)and it will take 3 days to complete a work.Next day when I again visited I saw this person doing the outline just like stain glass on a mirror.So i just wanted to know what the paint was...
After 2 days i came to US and couldn't try any thing to experiment out this work.Last year i got a mirror from dollar shop to try this.But due to various reasons I couldn't do.Last month I finally tried using different paints like acrylic, fabric, oil and glass color on a small mirror that i had.
And guess what... i got the effect that i was looking for...that too using Glass color...
Then I started to paint this Ganesha (Picture i saw in one of my friends work).Just to make it different from stain glass I used stones just like zardosi painting.
HOPING EVERYONE KNOWS GLASS PAINTING AND ZARDOSI I HAVENT POSTED THE METHOD.I THERE IS ANY DOUBT REGARDING THIS WORK PLEASE LET ME KNOW .I WILL ALSO POST THE METHOD.
So the result is What you see here.... Planning on another work just like this soon.
BY THE WAY FRIENDS I WILL SOON POST BINDHI MAKING VIDEO.....

  7. Hi Your work is great and the instructions are very clear. Great work!.

    I just started on a glass paint last week with stain glass paints, it came out fine except with the thick outlines and color effects. Can you give me some tips on giving color effects?

    Thanks,
    Srivi
