    STAINED GLASS ATC Swap, HandDrawn/HandPainted, due June 24

    Due date: June 24
    Signup/Withdrawal date: June 18
    Number of Players: Unlimited
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Media: Hand-drawn/hand-painted, with inks, pencil, paints, markers

    The MMH thread on this theme was “born” out of a swap hosted by AngelJoy in 2015. I thought this might be a good time for a repeat. Please create 3 cards depicting any subject you like (simple shapes may work best), and style your artwork to look like stained glass. It is fascinating to see how different artists decide to depict the “leading” separating the glass pieces, and even the glass itself.

    Your individual style and technique is welcome! Use inks, paints, pens, markers, or colored pencils. Examples will be posted below. Do join us for a fun, creative, and colorful swap, and share your pictures if you can.

    GUIDELINES and MAILING
    - Please PM for my address when ready to mail.
    - Write your username, real name, and swap title on the back of each card.
    - Place each card in its own plastic sleeve for protection.
    - Please spread evenly within the envelope, and secure with Washi tape (Scotch tape can tear the sleeves).
    - Enclose one Forever stamp and a clearly written address label. I will provide envelopes.
    - International players, please send a $1 USA bill, or one Global Forever stamp, along with your address label. I will provide envelopes.

    Alcohol inks might be a good medium for this, I haven’t tried it in this application. Welcome, LuAnnP!

    Card #1

    It's not perfect, but I think this method is promising! Alcohol ink on Yupo, cut and fastened to Stonehenge Black paper.

    So the black paper acts as the leading, right? Very clever! I also like the slight streaking in the “glass”.

    I googled examples of Stained glass (real or drawn) and I'm really itching to try this! Don't know if I'll have time though.. So for now: lurking

    Three more "Imitation" Stained Glass cards

    Well, once I had the concept and the method, these began to feel more like "craft" than "art." They required a degree of precision that is not my forte, but I like the final product enough to make more.

    My original method was attaching the pieces by using double-stick tape. Lots of cutting and tricky placement. The "Log Cabin" template was based on an old quilt pattern. So pattern originally designed for fabric.... pieces made from paper...in an attempt to look like glass....



    Using gloss medium to attach the pieces is easier. Adding a top coat of gloss medium makes them look more like glass, too:



    These look much nicer "in person." A 20K image does not do them justice!
