floral painted glass

Looking for a unique way to show off your inner artist around your house? This painted frame is a statement piece that is sure to catch anyone's eye! It's painterly technique allows for imperfections to blend in, while the bright colors of the florals shine through!
Step 1

Choose a floral image for your inspiration.

Step 2

Open the hinged framed glass like a book, you will be painting on the right side. 
TIP: You can tape your inspirational image to the back of the frame to use as a guide. 

Step 3

Use your dry brush to scoop a small sized dollop of your desired color and begin painting your design.
TIPS:

  • Since colors will mix as they are painted, use your dark colors first, medium values second and lightest value colors last for a highlight effect. This will add depth to your painted florals. 
  • You will want to apply your paint with a dry brush using minimal pressure but with quick strokes.
  • Quick overlapping paint strokes in the shape of a "comma" make great flower petals.
  • Use as little water as possible to avoid a runny painted look or the colors mixing too fast. 
Step 4

Set aside to completely dry.

Step 5
Close frame and remove inspirational image from the back. 
TIP: If you don't like the result wet or dry it easily washes off and you can start again.
