This is one of the first glass painting videos we ever made. It shows basic glass painting skills using the flood fill method. This method is done flat. Whenever possible it is always best to do your glass painting flat. It gives you a much better finish. You can let the paint flow and get a flat smooth finish.
In practice terms this may mean working on glass painting film or remove in object (window, door) whilst you work on it.
It is possible to work on curved objects and you will find a guide later on which does this. Unfortunately the finish you get wont be quite as good.
Working flat and flood filling also enable you to blend and mix paints on the work. Again there other guides on this site which show how to do this. You wont always want to do this. There are times when big blocks of solid look best.
