How-To: Zombie Glass Painting

Craft & Design

Jo Anne from Crafting For Cheapskates shares how she created this reverse painting on the glass from a thrifted picture frame. She details how you need to start with the image highlights and work up in layers to create the final effect. I love her zombie, but the technique could be applied to a variety of images.

    Painting on glass is great, it’s been my primary medium for years. However, acrylics aren’t reliable on glass; they’ll flake off down the road. Oils are stable.

    Thanks for the correction. I had always heard that oil doesn’t breathe under glass. Grandma was right- you really do learn something new every day!
