How to make glass painting
Glass painting – a delicate and refined way of decorating, previously available only to the elite professionals. However, recent advances in the field of synthetic resins and dyes now make it possible to decorate the window and fans. With paints using different techniques, it became possible to paint the glass, mirrors, ceramic, metal, and other similar materials.
– Working surface (glass)
– Sketch 1: 1
– stained paint;
– stained contours IDEA two colors: number 137 Gold Lager, number 151 Gold dark;
– alcohol or degreaser;
– a solvent for cleaning brushes;
– brush, spatula №45;
– crystal paste Maimeri 727;
– easy pasta Maimeri 731;
Sketch made in mirror image, ie, the front part of the panel will be smooth, and hidden from the inside working surface (paint, gel, contours). Sketch attach the tape to the glass around the perimeter and put on a flat surface. The glass surface must be well degreased.
Begin painting with the application circuit. Apply slowly, making the line of uniform thickness.
Contours must link up well, except for places with tears. This is necessary in order to avoid leaking of paint at each other
In this sketch used two colors contour. After applying to dry thoroughly.
Getting to the color part. Apply the paint in closed raised area. To figure was more realistic and richer, you can use streamers of color – from dark to light, or transitions from one color to another.
After a good drying paint, palette knife to inflict some parts of the crystal paste Maimeri 727.
Apply need a little, smoothing it over the surface to be filled lenses filled the whole surface.
After drying the paste, the lenses will become more transparent.
Then continue to fill in the rest of stretch marks on the design elements of color. After coating each figure, should be given time to dry the ink.
Now we put a light paste Maimeri 731. It will simulate water. Apply as a palette knife in a chaotic manner, trying to put medium-sized swabs. Too press down to the surface is not necessary, because it is important to leave a relief, “wave”. With this technique, the possibility of getting the paste on the circuit, but in this embodiment, it is possible.
When the paste dries well (become transparent) can be applied on top of it the background color. It is also used color transitions.
If the paint gets on the path, you do not need to despair because we draw on the technical backside. On the front (wrong) side all will be perfect!
When all the paint has dried, you can remove the sketch (or it can be removed even after the application of the circuit). Since the panels will stand in a niche, backlit, you should check that the entire surface has been filled with paint (even small schelki). It is enough to lift it vertically and look at the light.
Overturn the panels on the front part. Now the panel is ready! It can be installed in a niche.
