This piece was inspired by Iranian tiles which are sparkly. These types of tiles were popular in Iran between 1250-1300. We about these tiles and followed the tutorial in The Usborne ART Treasury on pages 84 -87. We love this book. The mistake I made when making the shape templates was that I measured the width of my page and divided by three. I forgot to take into account the space (1-2 mm) that you loose with the frame. The sparkly part was easily accomplished with pva glue, glitter and a touch of water. Mix and paint over the top. It is very shiny and sparkly.
I invite you to take some photo's of your children's artistic pursuits put them in a post and link up with me I would love to come over and see the wonderful art your children have enjoyed doing.
