I bought these three lanterns from the Reject Shop. But thought that you could do exactly the same with any glass jar. Twisting wire around the top to hang if needed.
With the black marker draw double lines reasonably close together on the top and bottom horizontally around lantern. Then draw three double lines vertically down the lantern.
Next mark brick like lines within these lines.
Draw in flowers
Stop and let touch dry here and there so you don't smudge it. A few times I got a bit carried away with the fun of painting and forgot I was smudging all what I had just done. Lol.
You have to be a little patient. But the paint does dry pretty quickly.
Add in stained glass like lines in background so you can change colours between the lines
Choose your colour combos. I chose to make each border in each lantern a different set of colours. One is blue's, one is red's and one is green's.
Here's the fun bit. Chose your colours and start colouring in your drawings
Add dots to add texture. You could use any zen tangle like patterns though, that would look really cool.
With one of the lanterns I used dots to colour instead of solid colour. Took a bit longer but looks effective.
Add black dots over some of your prepainted sections
Use any candle you like in your lantern or jar
Now to light them up and see what they look like
And with the lights low the beauty of the 'stained glass look' lanterns really shine
With the flickering of the candle flame the projected colours move and flicker also, it really is very pretty.
These are cool
Thankyou for watching my tutorial. Hopefully I have inspired you to have a play with Pebeo's wonderful Vitrea 160 markers that make glass painting so much fun and so easy. Any one can do it.
