Glass Painting Ideas

Glass painting is a contemporary art which has been derived from the age old art of stained glass painting which involved putting small colored pieces of glass together. It was a common feature in high windows and doors of religious places in the olden times and can still be seen in churches and old buildings. In today's times glass painting is gaining a lot of popularity due to the availability of the materials and the ease with which it can be done.

Glass painting looks beautiful when light or any illumination passes through the transparent medium, the results are simply amazing. The sun rays going through the transparent colored glass gives it a glow that no other artificial light can give. However, too much exposure can sometimes result in fading of colors. Some glass paintings are framed with silver foil to reflect light to create a similar effect. This technique can be used when it is not possible to expose the painting to required amount of light.

A lot of glass painting designs are attempted on various surfaces too like OHP sheets that give a transparent look, on wooden surfaces which gives an altogether different look when required to be done. The colors available today are vibrant and give you the look that is desired. Do not be afraid of mistakes as they can be removed after the painting has dried. This can be done for the outliner and paint, both. They can be carefully scraped off with a paper knife, this has to be done very carefully as it can also put scratches on the glass. Cotton can also be used to wipe off the wet paint or outliner in case of a mistake. The most common and easiest glass paintings designs are that of peacocks, floral and marine life. These days stencils are also available, so if you are not too confident about your drawing, you can take their help.
