Hand Painted Glass Tutorial

We are going to be putting 3 layers of paint on each strip of glass, so remember LESS IS MORE. The first coat I call Press and Swirl.
Use a little dollop and hold the glass strip firmly. Press down hard and swirl the paint down the strip. You will have to get more painton your finger about 4 more times for each strip. Don't get lazy and put a lot of paint on your finger, it won't work. Always go in one direction and don't go back over your work. the paint dries fast and you will just wipe it off. I can't stress enough how you must embrace the irregularities of this process. One strip will be cut into 48 pieces and each one needs to look different. NO UNIFORMITY!
