For gifts this year I was thinking glitter paintings would be fun, here is a step by step demonstration of how I went about making a glitter painting.
For starters my materials used were: a pre-stretched canvas 9"x12", graphite paper, print on regular paper, acrylic paint, pencil, brush and tape. For the second part of this project I needed Mod Podge and several colors of glitter.
First adhere the graphite paper face down on the canvas.
Secure the image on top of graphite paper.
Trace the picture.
Once print and graphite paper are removed the image is faint so I went over the lines in pencil.
Blocking in the values and color.
I then began painting on Mod Podge and pouring on glitter starting at the top working down to avoid messing up the glitter.
Using both mixed and straight glitters I filled in the blocks of color.
And it's done! I hope someone enjoys their glitter kitty!
