Reverse glass painting is a popular art form in the world. Unlike canvas paintings, the reverse glass painting technique requires an artist to paint from back to front, in reverse order.
In simple terms, the difference is that the canvas was painted on the same side that will eventually be seen by people, while the reverse side of the canvas is painted on a reverse glass. The best glass that can be used for painting is Dichroic patterned glass.
As is clear from the concept itself, reverse glass paint is not only very different from plain canvas, it is also very sturdy and difficult to do well. Rather than painting glass, artists skillfully rely on the work of a particular art form.
Here are some tips and tutorials to help beginners create their invert painting:
A reverse painting will start by creating a subject on one side of the glass. You have to be very careful when doing this because each and everything that will be drawn on the glass will be a mirror image of the real subject.
The glass must be completely free and scratch-free or the subject will not enter it. Also, try to choose a clean and dust-free environment when working on glass artwork.
Use a good quality, durable brush to draw and color. This will ensure smooth, even strokes every time you draw or color.
