So... this is a Lifebook 2013 lesson... yeah... I'm a little behind.  Id' put off doing this one because I knew how much work it was going to be.  I thought I knew, but it took far, far, far longer than even I thought.  I hated every minute of it, and was determined to hate the finished product... but I don't, really.  It's a cool look, but I'm not sure I'm patient enough to ever do it again.



You basically coat two sides of tissue paper with glossy Mod Podge, then paint one side.  THEN you meticulously cut out each piece to fit into the area of your drawing, gluing each of them down.  THEN you paint around the edges and line in between the pieces in black.  I lost track of the number of hours I spent on this, but it took about four days of working on it every day for a few hours each.



The pieces are a bit sticky, and coating the top after you finish gluing it down with more glossy Mod Podge makes it that much more glassy looking!







Now I just have to finish LB 2013 (I think I have 25 lessons left?) and do pretty much all of LB 2014, 2015, and 2016...  D:

This is such a cool technique! I've never seen it before- where did you learn it from? It really looks like stained glass, especially with the way the brush strokes look.

And, good for you for plugging away on your LB art lessons!

It looks so cool! I can see how it would be time consuming and frustrating but it was certainly worth it in the end.
