Stay indoors this summer and indulge in something creative every day. Here’s a quick sun catcher which can add some color to your sunny balcony.

how to do it yourself

STEP 1:-

SUN CATCHER - Step 1 | Hobbyideas

You can use and glass/fiber glass surface to make a sun catcher. Select a design of your choice and sketch the outline using Fevicryl Glass outliner which is available in the Fevicryl Glass colors kit.
I have picked up a ready design of an owl from the Hobby Ideas store. This is made with fiber glass, is laser cut and has the design printed on it. So for this fiber glass sun catcher base, I need not use the Fevicryl glass outliner, and I can directly start coloring it.
Ensure that the surface to be painted is clean.
