Sun-catchers - At Home Art 6

Today I was inspired by the gorgeous weather forecast we have for the week. What better way to celebrate the sun than to make some DIY suncatchers! There are many ways to make sun-catchers but I have selected a version that requires the use of wax paper and an iron.

The first link explains the process of creating tissue paper ‘stained glass’. They do an excellent job of breaking the process into steps and include pictures. They also provide examples of some possible design variations including impressionist, mandala, abstract, and typography as well as frame variations. The second link is for a video that takes a mixed media approach to this project. Try it yourself by including some cedar leaves, dried flowers and crayon shavings to your designs and bring a little spring into your house. Please feel free to like and share. If you do create a sensational sun-catcher we would love to see it. Take a picture and tag us #temiskamingartgallery.

That's it for now. Have a great day folks.


Sincerely; Your friendly neighbourhood art gallery.
