Flower Power 🌼

Let's dive into a groovy and unique artistic adventure today! I'm crafting a whimsical hippie-inspired flower art piece that's sure to bring a touch of retro charm to your space. During one of my Hobby Lobby adventures, I stumbled upon these glass flowers and immediately envisioned a funky 70s-style art piece. This project is simple, fun, and perfect for beginners looking to get started with glass and resin art!

I'm going to use a watercolor pencil to divide up five sections of my background. I'm doing curvy lines to create swoopy sections of color. I will paint each section with white paint and then add on light blue, dark blue, peach, orange, and pink. Paint the sides of your canvas too. Dry with a heat tool.

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your flower vase and leaves with a stylus.

I'm going to use a liner brush to paint on my flower stems with Avocado Green. I'll also add a little bit of white paint. Next, I'll paint the leaves with Hauser Green Light, mixing in Avocado Green and white paint for dimension. Dry with a heat tool.

I'll use a black Posca Pen to outline my flower vase and add some short strokes to my stems and leaves. Then I'll use a white Posca Pen to add reflection lines to the vase.

At this point, you can arrange your glass flowers on your canvas and paint extra stems if you need to. I'll resin the first three to the canvas and then layer some extra ones on top.

We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your glass and spread it onto your canvas using your gloved fingers or brush. Then, add your extra flowers, add resin with your gloved fingers, and place them on your canvas too. 

I'll also add a flower on the bottom of my canvas along with some glass bubbles on the bottom of my vase.

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!
