I painted the flag on the backside of the glass about 10 years ago on the left side. The pic on the right was my grandmothers frame on glass she painted. Notice in those days no shadings. I also have a very huge piece of glass in my attic about 3' X 4" she painted, but when my mother owned it, somehow it had gotten broken. So it remains there for safe keeping. Maybe someday I will repair it and hang it.
It's really a challenge to reverse paint and on a glass surface as you have to get your mind thinking backwards and these days my mind sometimes has troubles going forwards. LOL!
I picked a project that I thought would be fairly simple to create bawahaha boy was I wrong!!! I have many boo boo's so to speak! I just couldn't get my shades and floats to go the way I wanted. You also have to be very careful as you can't use a wipe to remove your mistakes or you wipe off the glass prep and paint aghhhh!
I choose the smaller 8 X 10 frame and cleaned the glass well. I taped a pencil sketch of one of my designs to the glass and began with the sculpting first haha what you thought I was just painting?? I love the look of 3-D and bringing a project to life.
So my struggles began! Not exactly how it would have looked if I had done it on canvas or a wood surface, but hey I'm learning! I did use Kleenex to create the wood look.
So to cover up my mistakes I added stencils here and there. It is mixed media you know lol! I also added some bling to the frame with sculpted roses and hearts.
Remember everything doesn't have to be perfect!! Just keep trying. I will be trying this again someday when I recover from this experience!
Reminder- Today January 18th 10 am eastern time is the big etsy day sale! Hope to see you there.
