A nice addition to a jungle room, for boys and girls!
Sloth window hanger in bamboo
How to do:
Search the internet for an image of your choice and print this.
Place this image as a pattern under the transparent sheet and trace the lines with a black liner.
For slightly thicker lines use Creall-Glass contour or for thin lines Pébeo Vitrail Relief-Black.
Let it dry completely.
Now the coloring with Pébeo Vitrail can begin. The colors can be mixed with each other.
To do this, scoop a small amount from the jars and mix it. Sometimes it is nice not to mix the colors completely, so that a playful effect is created.
This is often nice with plants or a coat, so you can also create a little shade. Using a brush, gently scoop up the colors a little at a time and let it flow into the pattern. By doing it carefully you prevent air bubbles. If air bubbles do form, you can puncture them with the tip of a brush or a needle.
Make sure you work well against the black lines. Different colors can merge over the lines. Do not try to fill in the boxes next to each other at the same time, but wait a few hours to do so.
Tip: With the medium-matt or medium-lightening you can make the Vitrail glass paint a bit lighter or softer.
After coloring it creates two different sides to your work, so you can choose which one will be the front.
Finally, use white glass paint to create a little shimmer in the sloth's black eye. There are many different color variants in the sloth family, so make your own color mixture that appeals to you. Nice examples can be found on the internet.
With a hot nail you make holes in the transparent sheet, so you can easily attach the sloth in the bamboo window with rope.
The bamboo window is made from a few garden bamboo sticks. They are glued together with a glue gun and the corners reinforced with rope.
Lots of fun!
