learn how to paint transparent glass with acrylics

Over the last few years, many people have asked me how to paint transparent glass with acrylics. Based on a background done in the Book of Background series, you’ll learn how to up-cycle an existing piece of artwork, then you’ll learn with explicit detail on how to paint something transparent, making areas dark with transparent colours and using opaque lights to give the glass a pop of accent.

You will also learn how to use a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet as an alternative to printing¬† your reference material (in case you don’t have a printer) and how to transfer a line drawing without graphite paper and more.

For your reference material, do a Google search for wine glasses.

Important Note: I had not dipped into the Vino while painting, but yes, the glass is a bit tipsy ūüôā
