Design Options for Painting On Glass

If you are someone who does not have much artistic ability if any, you too can paint on glasses and create a lovely piece. That is the neat thing about painting on glasses, they are easy to do and can look nice even if just a simple pattern is used. Maybe even something laying around your house can be used for the design. Let your imagination run free with this one.

I have seen some really neat art work that is made by placing polka dots in random placements all over a piece, or placed together in certain patterns to form a more structured design. Items that can be used to create the polka dots are pencil tips, the eraser on a pencil, the end of a paint brush, and a stylus. These are just a few items that come to mind. I love painting with dots, big and small. They can add more interest even to piece that I am able to hand paint.

Maybe even consider different brush strokes like the dry brush stroke using a flat paint brush. Multiple colored swirls and squiggles all over in different colors can create a festive look. Painting different shapes everyone is familiar with like squares, triangles, and rectangles. That would be a nice contemporary look.

You could even use a sponge and pounce the color on to the glass. It does not have to be a special sponge. Any will do. Keep an open mind and the designs ideas will follow. Remember to have fun. That's what it is all about!
