Glass Painting Peacock


Glass Painting Peacock 
This glass painting has a special place in my heart and in our house .Years back, as a newly married couple we lived in a rented house with a huge showcase in the front room.We couldn't afford to spend on "home decor" and I embarked on the very economic craft of glass painting to spruce up my house!

The peacocks were inspired by a glass painting on the net-- I cant seem to find the creator to credit them.

Glass Painting Peacock Pattern
The glass painting flowers are quite bright and colorful....perhaps reflecting my state of mind at the time[Ha  Ha]
Glass Painting Peacock 
Black glass out-liner is freely available but for this glass painting I used different colored out-liners such as green,gold and silver.

Here is the closeup of the glass painted peacocks.

Glass painting is a very economic and fairly "quick result" hobby. For anyone who has not tried it I urge you to try as its so soothing on the soul! And yeah you can make pretty sober paintings too unlike my "all the colors I have" type of glass painting!

  2. Hello dear sweet friend. You are an AMAZING artist. This is absolutely beautiful. I love all the bright colors and happy to hear as a newlywed you were very "cheery". That really shows in this art. I think this is prettier than anything you could buy in the store. Plus, the story behind it makes it more priceless!
    :O)

  41. Your blog is such a fun place to visit. You always bring back a long lost memory. I did this with my sister when I was a kid on a 5 x7 picture frame glass. We crinkled a piece of aluminum foil and put it behind the painting when we had finished and it looked so cool. I had completely forgotten about this. Your painting is so beautiful and elaborate...and the colors are definitely in a happy place, which you always seem to come from. I know I say it all the time, but what a great blog!
