Intro: Safari Silhouette Window Hanging
Creating a painting using an old window
I wanted to create original art work for my 3 month old twin daughter’s room. This window came from a remodeling project in our basement. I saw that it could become an excellent canvase for my work.
For this project you will need:
Old Windows, Conte Crayon, Paint, Large and Small paint brush
I started by searching for landscape images on the internet. I came up with a quick design and started to use the conte crayon to create a sketch on the window. I drew my sketch on the outside of the window so that I could paint on the backside over the images. After erasing a little, using glass cleaner and a rag, the image was ready to be painted.
Flip it over and place on a light colored background. Use varied brushes to trace your images to the other side. During this step if you make a mistake you can clean it up immediately or let it dry for 10 to 15 minutes and scrape off the design you intend.
Once you have finished, fashion wall hangers and hang.
The girls enjoy the stark contrast.
Remember to wash your brush.
