    Now use the Amsterdam Deco Relief paint no.801 and go over all the pencil lines with the relief paint. Leave to dry for a good 3+ hours. (Bear in mind that the relief left will shrink a little during the drying process.)

    Then go over these relief painted lines with one more coat of Light Gold no.802, so that you have a nice thick relief. Leave to dry again overnight.

  • Step 6

    Lastly, you can now fill the rest of the canvas (the white canvas itself) with the white opaque no.126 with the nr. 14 brush to finish the art piece off.

    Points to note
    The thicker the glass paint is applied, the less you see brush strokes.
    You may find it quicker to pore the paint on to the canvas for the larger areas, but be careful!
    Leave to dry on a flat LEVEL surface so that the glass paint dries evenly
    Do not touch the glass paint until it is thoroughly dry as it is very sticky and will leave a finger mark, and you will have to paint over it!
    You may want to experiment on test pieces first if you are mixing colour.
    The paints to have a strong smell, so best to do your creation in a well aired room.
