IMT - Glass

The theme at Inspire Me Thursday this week is "glass". Here I am posting a study I made on glass, painted with special glass paints It combines various aspects to represent the idea of nature and I was trying to achieve an effect similar to stained glass windows. I did it ages ago at school!

Sorry for the bad picture - it is hard to get a good one because the flash reflects on the glass.


The picture is mounted on a frame with tin foil (!) behind. It creates these really nice effects of ripples in the colours where there are wrinkles in the foil.

So beautiful. I didn't know you could make it look so much like stained glass with the paints.

It's not always easy to photograph glass. My two cents… turn your flash off completely and photograph it with lots of soft ambient light. Like outside on a cloudy day. This will help avoid the glare. Hope you don’t mind the tip from someone who photographs her share of glass.
