Trinity Design Photography is pairing up remotely with the Station Gallery in Whitby to show how creativity at home can add to the quality of time spent home with loved ones. This mural project requires the following:
– a window pane
– acrylic or tempra paint
– a few drops of dish soap (in the paint)
– paint brushes
– painter’s tape
– optional but handy, an exacto knife and ruler (to make the painters tape strips smaller
Step One – Clean your window panes so there is no debris or dirt.
Step Two – Mask off the window into sections. We chose a traditional geometric design.
Step Three – Mix paint with a few drops of dish soap in each colour, this will help removal at a later date.
Step Four – Paint one colour per section ensuring that the colours are evenly spaced so as to make a pleasing pattern. There is no wrong way to do this so have some fun.
TIP: Make patterns in the wet paint to add visual interest such as circles, waves and diamonds with the edge of the brush, you could even finger paint.
Step Five – Once dry remove the painters tape – this will give you mullions of clear glass to finish of the window.
Step Six – Enjoy the fruits of your labours from both inside and outside the window pane. Outside will be much more opaque than the inside and give you a different POV on the artwork.
