The project I am going to share with you today has me up in a whirl wind. Do you remember this window from my unfinished projects pile?
Well I cleaned it all up and painted it yellow..,but I hated so I painted over the yellow with red, black and brown acrylic paint.
I painted and then smeared the paint off with a paper towel. I did this about 4-5 times on each side.
I then sanded the edges and splattered black and yellow paint randomly around the frame. Here is the end result to the frame.
The result wasn't bad so I moved onto the window area. I wanted a stained glass look. I drew a little pattern using wrapping paper, taped it on the back of the window and then traced over it with Gallery Glass leading.
After I traced it all, I let it dry, before I painted. Now was the painting part. I only bought the little bottles of the gallery glass so I couldn't just use select colors. I had to use them all so that I wouldn't run out of color. I discovered that it if I painted the color on with a fan brush and did a consist stroke design it wasn't so bad. I had to be very careful because if I added too much paint I would have a problem with bubbles.
The middle was the easiest and most enjoyable part of this project. I used the Gallery glass "Crystal clear" and just swirled it around to get the textured look. After it was all dry I put it up and alas I didn't like it. So I cut an umbrella design out of vinyl and stuck it to the back of my window.
I think it looks better,but I still don't like it. In fact it makes me sick every time I walk past it.There is a good ending to this story though because the paint is REMOVABLE! I like this painting project idea,but I am going to be changing this when I can find exactly what I really want. It was a good learning experience. Any ideas? I want a cozy feel and should I painted the frame cream or something?
