I talk about the stages of work on a new resident my collection – golden turtle – and share tips stained glass mural.
Draw a sketch of a turtle, the patterns on the shell.
The thin, barely visible lines I outlined the details of the image on the disk light brown felt pen and then took in the gold circuit. Give the circuit to dry for about an hour.
From the plastic packaging, I cut small rectangles. Applying them to the sketch and start to trace the outline.
The head, legs, tail. Also give time to gain a foothold contour.
Carefully cut out the details, leaving the room (2 cm) in the bonding area. We will stick on the back side of the disc
Cut. Pre kompanuem turtle.
Getting mural disk-shell. At first, I used a stained glass paints “Gamma” water-based. These paints are odorless. The droplet is squeezed straight from the plastic tube. It follows that in this case no formation of air bubbles. If any, you can pierce them with a needle.
Thin brush evenly distributes the paint inside the outline of the border. If you need more drips of paint.
It is desirable that each color inflicted “clutched” and then we put the other in order to avoid mixing of colors.
It has been somewhere for 40 minutes and now proceed to painting a different color. Here I used a stained glass paints French company “Pablo” on the solvent. They have a pungent smell. Brush must be washed after use in a diluent (white spirit).
Just gently dunks brush in a jar of paint and drag on our drive. Distribute. Paints solvent different from other more color brightness.
To give the turtle a golden hue, I mix a gold and ocher paint in a special panel.
The intermediate stage of the work. The carapace is ready, paint the details of our turtles.
Foot. Once finished painting, parts must dry for 8-9 hours! We need to be patient and wait, or stained glass paint does not have time to harden and we can hurt performance.
Time has passed and I am using a gold loop caused bitmap. It is also used green pearl and red at the edges of the shell.
Carapace almost ready!
After drying, the shell (1-2 hours), you can begin to collect turtle parts. Apply a layer of glue and glue to the underside of the disc.
Here’s what happened. Give the glue to harden. But we’ve got a hole in the middle of the shell. I found the following solution.
Cut the plastic square and glue it to the backside of the center.
And on the front side with the help of glue gun, I glued glass pebble.
Carapace as a whole.
I decided to make the turtle in the form of panels and has built the back of her golden braid loop, fixing her glue gun.
The advantage of a disk that paint play on it all the colors of the rainbow!
Now the two of them! My first stained glass bug on the disc here .
