I purchased some frames to frame some of my art. Since my art is three dimensional I didn’t need the glass so I decided use it as a base (its 3 ½ “ x 5”). I wanted to use an embossing technique on the glass but I didn’t have a rubber stamp to fit the art nouveau theme. But I did have a digital image. So I decided to print the image on transparency film, emboss the image and glue it to the glass. Click here if you want to see the tutorial on how to emboss transparency film. I used Glossy Accents to glue the transparency to the glass as it dries clear. I painted the glass with a thin coat of the glue then applied the transparency. I used foil tape to cover the edges. The tape was gold, but I wanted more of a copper color so I painted the tape with alcohol ink before applying it to the glass. When I finished it looked exactly like a piece of stain glass. You cannot tell that there is a piece of transparency film glued to the glass.
The peacock tail and head feathers are made of straight pins. I painted the metal shafts with alcohol inks. The headdress is made from spiral paperclips.
