1. Artistic Work on Square Glass Jars
2. Overview of Creative Process
My creative process started with purchasing square glass jars in thrift stores in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Generally, I was interested in the shape of the jars as the perfect canvas for my artistic design. I was challenged to conceptualize an unique design that would best fit with the shape while making the final product interesting and visually appealing. I found 2 techniques that worked beautifully, which I have shared with you below.
- Use of diagonal or horizontal lines while blending rainbow colors: I experimented with shades of red, pink, yellow and orange.
- Creating a sense of gradient and focusing on a single color while blending in black and white to create depth: Gradients can be created by blending white and/or black with base colors. I was excited to use metallic colors such as copper and bronze to create gradients. You can check out acrylic metallic paints on Amazon.
