Islamic Calligraphy GlassPaint Wall art
By Khadija's Creative Mind on May 24th, 2014 I am excited about sharing my today’s post, I just finished working on this beautiful wall art of this GlassPaint with Islamic calligraphy design! I simply love doing this every time, as I also have made so many of these wall arts for selling & gifting to my family & friends. Glass paint is more interesting at any mirror because of its reflection thing, and when the mirror is hanging as a wall art, you can imagine how good looking it seems!!
So here it is my latest glass paint wall hanging! I design a big 18″/22″ mirror wall art. I enjoy designing this, I hope you will also like to see. Here it is..
I ordered for a mirror frame of 18″/22″ with antique (chocolate plus gold) color frame. it was looking well even without any designing or glass paint over it. So later I design it.
Here are the steps on how I did this glass paint step by step Tutorial..
For this glass paint, you will need to have gold colored led & glass paints, (I use Crystal line) Tracing sheet & the pattern. That’s it..
First I fix the calligraphy pattern with tracing sheet in the middle of mirror. And trace it well..If you can write free hand that would be amazing! but I trace it.. admitting..!!
Then use the led out liner & follow the lines & write the calligraphy part totally! & let it dry..
Now select the colors which you want to use, I am using red, green & a blue shade. I use these slim tip paint brushes for filling the led outline area with glass paints! And I fill the Bismillah calligraphy image outline with red glass paint.
For the bottom & top area, I design it without tracing, I simply design some mosaic shapes & then color it with all three colors, just to have a look of mosaic pieces..
Before adding the colors, the mirror was looking like this.. So dry the led totally & then start adding glass paint in it..
Here it is the zoom image of the final look.. I just love the colors.. so vibrant! isn’t it?
And here it is an important thing to do..SIGNATURE your art work, my brother suggest me to do it at the mirror, I said may be the glass paint look will not be looking so perfect after having the signature at front side, but He said, NO Way.. when YOU are the artist behind this creativity, so WHY NOT to sign it at front..?? its your right to sign anywhere you want! So I got his point & sign it at front..
Before I have made & sold many glass paintings & I only sign this one at front side of the art piece.. otherwise I always sign at the back side of the product, but now I am growing & learning more with the help of my family & friends.. I love the wonderful people around me.. they all are super supportive & always caring.. LUCKY ME to be blessed with some amazing people around.. Alhamdulillah..
Here it is the final look.. Believe me it was not an easy job to take a fine pic of any mirror thing! in every pic, there was ME or my Camera or the opposite wall/globe/interior thing etc.. I face some problems doing this but here it is the image!

In these glass paints, I use glass pieces mosaic technique by pasting cracked glass pieces..so its a bit different.
