It's my grandma's birthday today, and I spent all of last night painting this:



It's a floating candle bowl, so I painted on the bottom (to lessen risks of the paint chipping.)



All the pretty flowers....



Golden butterfly and creamy lotus.



*hopes this is the right board for this.* Oh ho ho! No need to worry now that Craftster has a glass board!

Very, very pretty!

I love lotusesessesssss. Wink
And I love colorful glass.

What kind of paint did you use? Is it freehand? Was it tricky?

Your grammy will indeed be very happy.

She was happy  Wink

The paint I used was glass painting paint by Pebeo, the Vitrea 160 range. It bakes in the oven. I used frosted (purple) and glossy (everything else.) The big shiny lotus in the middle used a special iridescent medium. For outliner, I used Lefranc & Bourgeois Cern' Outliner in gold.

I freehanded some of it, but the flowers come from a glasspainting book, I forget which. It was a straightforward method (just outlining then filling it in) but it still too aaaaaaaages.

That's beautiful, I love the golden butterfly.  What a great gift!  There's always something new on craftster...I never heard of glass paint.  Time for a trip to the art supply store!

Have you really never heard of glass painting?  Shocked I was completely stuck on where to post this, 'cause there are boards for most techniques, but not this particular one. (But hey, bowls sit on tables = in houses. Right?)

I took a "course" on it, i.e. three or so afternoons in the holidays with my French teacher (and the rest of my class). The sessions were actually rubbish: she (French teacher) told us how to outline and fill in pictures, provided us with patterns and materials (though we had to buy the glass pieces) and left us to it. I've learnt loads more techniques (marbling, mixing, different mediums etc) from books from the library.

You do beautiful work!!  And hats off to you learning from the library.  That is where I get a lot of my instruction too.  Can't seem to afford every craft book I want.  Smiley

Here is a vase that I marble painted.
