Help me please!

Post by David de Oliveira » Mon Jan 05, 2015 2:23 pm

Hello everyone and happy new year!
I need to do a couple of signs and i'm finding hard to do it with the detail i want. The problem is that i have to reverse glass paint a very large area and i'm not satisfied with the first test ( the flower banner on top). Is there any technique i can use to do the larger area with the kind of detail i need?

Thanks in advance.

David, I may have broken the link you originally entered. I was trying to make the page go directly to your image. Maybe you can try it again.

To be honest, it is difficult for me to understand exactly what you are trying to do and exactly what problems you are having. With no responses, I suspect others are having the same issues.

How large is large? How much detail? How much experience do you have doing this kind of project? It the problem the size of the area you are painting? ...or the detail?

Not that many people I know try to do an elaborate reverse painted pictorial. It is difficult, especially if you are trying to include blends.

Maybe you can be more specific.
