Fairy in a Jar

Day 355 – Fairy in a Jar

Created by cutting a silhouette of a fairy out of black paper and sticking it on the inside of the jar.

I then stuck one layer of white tissue paper using PVA glue, added some fairy dust and pearlescent paint before lighting a candle on the inside for the glow…

Day 237 – Painted Jar Fairy

I started by painting the inside of a clean pickle jar with acrylic paints in various shades of blue. I mixed the colours as I painted.

I then drew a silhouette of a fairy with a black permanent marker on the outside of the jar.

In my head, I thought putting a lit candle inside would make the silhouette shine through. This didn’t work. I therefore painted on top of the black permanent marker with white acrylic paint. I tried dabbing the brush to add a bit of texture.
