I've been wanting to try the Gallery Glass fake stained glass paint for a long time and finally built up the courage to do so yesterday.  Whenever I try a new craft, I intentionally choose a really ambitious first project so I can really focus on the techniques and figure out what my strengths are.

The project?  Recreating the US publicity poster for one of my favorite films: The Eye.

The finished piece:

The free-handed pattern:

The finished piece was painted on a 5x7 top loading metal picture frame, then glued into place using E6000 and sealed on top with a thin layer of Liquid Leading.  The side blue panels and top/bottom black sections are finished with the Gallery Glass crackle medium.  It's not clear in the picture, but the small white slit in the doorway is one of the glittery paints with crackle medium on top.  And the child's skin is a very pale flesh tone, not the same bright white as the surrounding lighted hall.

Other than the text not being clear on the bottom, I'm pretty satisfied.
