This glass painting is made using fevicryl's water based glass colours. It is easy and simple to make and looks no less than a professional.
How To Do it Yourself
The design is the key to a great glass painting. Choose a design or get ideas from the internet, or you can be creative and draw your own like I did. I'd recommend to draw a rough design using a pencil first.
Complete your design. Show it to other people and ask if it looks good. Taking opinions of other people also helps you to end up with a great design.
Use a marker to darken the rough pencil sketch for even and fine lines so that it is visible through the glass.
Your final design is ready. Check if you need to add something else before moving ahead. I'd recommend to not overcrowd your design with lots of shapes; leaving spaces in between makes it look more beautiful and professional.
Carefully place the glass on your design and don't forget to gather all the materials you need. Grab a couple of dry tissue papers and keep it aside because you'll need it while using the 3D outliner and colours.
Patiently trace the design while applying constant pressure throughout and keep cleaning the nozzle of the 3D outliner with a dry tissue paper. It dries real quick but I kept it aside for about 2 hours to dry completely.
Start colouring gently. The colour is applied direclty to the glass through the tubes. Avoid air bubbles. Remove air bubbles using a sharp pin. It dries quickly but I let it dry for 24 hours in a dust-free corner of the room to dry completely.
Your painting is almost ready. Here's a trick, do multiple layers after the previous one dries to get a darker shade. You can look at the two different shades of green in the leaves. You can get the darker shade by using the trick I mentioned.
Just get it framed and your glass painting is ready to show off! People generally use crushed aluminium foil (for shine) for the background but I went for a cream-coloured paper to give it an authentic look. Hope you guys find it helpful.
