Reverse Glass Painting

These paintings are done by my dear daughter during her school days.
A person working with my husband who is good at doing these glass paintings taught her from scratch.

Things needed :
Plain glass 4 mm thick
Picture, any cartoon character, flowers, trees, funny animal drawings
craft paints or enamel paints of many colors
black enamel or crafty paints
silver or gold foils [ comes wrapping chocolates ]
paint brush of very thin bristles and also other sizes.

The figure to be painted is chosen first.
It is traced on a tracing sheet.
The glass painting is to be done on reverse side of a glass. So the picture has to be reversed.
The figure traced on the sheet is darkened on the other side [ or bottom side ].
Now this reversed picture is stuck under the glass.
First outlines are made with black crafty paints or crafty paint liners.
