Ocean Jellyfish 🌊

beach May 24, 2023

I am showing you how to make a beautiful ocean-themed art piece with jellyfish with lots of fun glass embellishments such as acrylic bubbles, crushed glass, clear vitrigraph, and a small glass globe that I broke some pieces from. This one requires a minimal amount of painting and is great for beginners just getting started in glass art!

I am starting by painting my canvas with white paint. Then, I'll add a little bit of Calypso Blue to the background. Next, I'll take some of the blue and some of the white on the very tips of my bristles and create some squiggle lines. Dry with a heat tool.

Place your clear glass globe pieces onto your canvas to determine where each of your jellyfish will be located. Then, take some Metallic White paint, load your paintbrush, and twist and turn it down your canvas to create some tentacles. I'll also mix in some Metallic Teal and use the same technique. 

Do the same thing with your second jellyfish, but have your tentacles going in the other direction. I also have a gold paint pen and a metallic white paint pen that I'll use to add some extra tentacles squiggle lines as well. I'll paint the jellyfish's round body with some Metallic White paint too. Dry with a heat tool.

I'm going to add crushed clear glass to my jellyfish's body. 

We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1.5 ounces of resin and stir gently for three minutes.

Add resin to the crushed clear glass and then add some to the inside of your clear glass globes with a gloved finger. Lay it onto your canvas over the top of the clear glass. Then, cover each piece of vitrigraph with resin and place them onto your canvas in the tentacles. Sprinkle some acrylic bubbles on your art piece. 

Then, pour the rest of the resin onto your canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush. Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!
