Stained still capture the imagination of our contemporaries, along with fireplaces and rocking chairs.For us, all this - the signs of romance, wealth, comfort and beauty.But if you had stained glass windows adorned the temples and houses of the nobility, but now they can order almost any person.Moreover, the patterns on the glass now adorn not only the window openings.They trim doors and glass doors on cabinets, vases, glasses and lampshades, process them in the form of paintings, applied to the windows of the car - and who knows what other use could be found decorating the resourceful person in the pursuit of beauty.
more attractive patterns on the glass are because the use of modern materials and technologies to decorate their beloved home and a person can own.Even if the ability to draw from him a little - enough desire, perseverance and precision.
The more you can draw on the glass?The simplest "paint»

more short-lived frost on the glass - but they need something just before Christmas.For their application, there are several methods: toothpaste, dissolved in water and sprayed on the glass from the spray;beer with magnesium in a ratio of half a glass of 50 g;fixer for photos ... but live such patterns on the glass with his hands hast made only to the nearest washing windows, and if you drew a picture for the long admiration, it will have further consolidated.When required, "long-term" freezing stained glass craftsmen are advised to use carpenter's glue.To such pictures look even more significantly, it is necessary to make the surface of the glass mat - sand, beer or matting paint.
Before drawing on glass used in conventional oil-based paints.The result is not inspiring: gets tough, with streaks and uneven colors.Naturally, due to improper surface of the picture it could be smeared at any time and require varnish.
If you're wondering what colors painted on glass full picture today, pay their attention to the stained glass.They do not spread over the surface, and after drying does not require additional fixing reagents.Such paints are of two types: those that require firing, and those who do not need it.The latter, of course, require less labor and more saturated brightness.However, dry them for a long time - up to three weeks - but the cunning folk craftsmen and figured out how to shorten this period.In principle, the idea of lying on the surface: it is enough to take advantage of the usual hair dryer, and the drying time is reduced to one day.
Before starting to paint on glass, it must necessarily be degreased.It is not difficult to achieve simply with soap and water or your usual stekloochititelem.Then, the glass should be dry.If you rub it, the process will go faster and there will be no traces of drops, but the fabric must be chosen such that not left on the surface of the villi.
the preparatory phase are applied to the glass contours liked drawing.Ideally this should be done in pencil, but it can be replaced with a thin marker.And if the image is applied to a flat surface, fit and carbon paper.
pattern placed under the bottom of the base and patterns for stained glass encircled the selected tool.Naturally, if you are using carbon paper, the sheet is placed on top of a picture in a mirror image.Traditionally templates taken tissue paper, but on my experience, those who have already engaged in painting, make sure that the transparent film from the file documents much more comfortable.
very crucial moment
Just paint patterns on the glass, focusing on the contours, you can not - yet not with the paper work.Please outline encircled special contour paste.Most often it takes a black, silver or golden color.The choice depends on personal preference and the style of the selected pattern.In addition to giving the picture clarity, such circuits in the future will not allow paint to flow and mingle with each other.
If the hand somewhere faltered, the error is corrected stick with cotton wool;until the paste has dried, it is easy to wash.
At the end of the stroke is left blank for some time to outline the paste to dry and then smeared.Complete drying is not required: one day the glass is ready for further manipulation.
If you do not trust your artistic abilities, it is desirable to have a color picture, which will consult with the coloring.For this approach to draw on glass need only one color: that is first drawn all the details of, say, red, brush clean and then taken another color.Paints spends so much less - and they are not cheap.
If your pattern on glass somewhere formed a thin layer, will have to wait until the applied paint is dry before saturate the color desired part.Otherwise greater brightness on this material is not achieved.
