- aluminium sheet (from a stationary shop or shop with hobby stuff)
- acrylic colors
- a pair of scissors
- sharp paper-knife
- hot glue
- colored ribbons or other embellishments
Step one: We choose our pattern. If the pattern is "easy", without many details for example, our work will be easy. We could choose a butterfly pattern for a start.
Step two: We draw the pattern on the aluminium sheet. If drawing is not our space, we can transfer the pattern on the sheet with carbon paper. I did it simply pushing my pen hard on the lines.
Step three: We cut carefully around the pattern.
Step four: We sandpaper the edges of the pattern and with the same light sandpaper we can do some light lines on our pattern.
Step five: With a pronged paper knife we do dots to underline the pattern and we paint it, if we want. (I didn't haha... ).The suggested colors are glass colors or window colors. We could use colored glitter and atlacol, too.
Step six: We glue the pattern on a prepainted canvas and ... here we are!! (The canvas shown is one of my little girl's paintings :)
