Tinsel ArtI made up a picture from a pretty card I had recieved and have enjoyed this picture for many years. Was really proud of my accomplishment since I felt I was not artistic at all.Supples NeededPicture frame w/glass liquid acrylic base paint.India ink, waterproof colors, black & whiteDrafting pen Glass satin, basic colorsBrushes: #0 and #3 and black & white forTracing paper shading. Decoupage print, greeting x-acto knifecard, etc.Clear acrylic spray Clean Glass,Trace pattern onto glass with india ink and drafting pen.Spray pattern with clear spray to set ink (this keeps ink from smearing)Fill in background with liquid acrylic, making sure glass is completely covered. This may take two or three coats. Begin by outlining design with #0 paint brush. Take your time, being very careful of minute places in background . This is the secret of a beautiful finished picture. Then, using larger brush, fill in rest of background. Let dry completely before adding second coat.When background is dry paint in glass stain. Colors may be subdued by using either white or pearl with color.When completely dry back picture with crinkled aluminum foil and place in frame.
