Painting on glass (pics)
Well, I discovered what you probably already know: Glass is very difficult to photograph! I played with the color on the martini glass quite a bit, but it's still way off. The paint is called Mauve, and it's not the rather bright purple I see on my screen. Also, the dots aren't blue Â they're white.
As for the plate, some of the petals look the way they actually do. :-) But the center doesn't at all. It's stippled, a mixture of black, brown, and touches of gold. Not nearly as solid (with gaps) as it looks in this picture.
The glass was the first thing I did. Trust me, it looks better in real life! But even so, it's not quite what I had in mind. I also did one in navy blue and one in burgundy. None are as decorated as I would like, nor as symmetrical. But they're interesting. :-)
The plate was a dollar store purchase. Nice looking glass, made in the USA. Figuring out what to paint on it was a no-brainer. And in case you can't tell from the photo, the paint is on the bottom (back) of the plate.
Thanks for letting me share!
