Celtic Projects with Gallery Glass
Many artists are enamoured with Celtic designs, not only for their historical significance, but for the linear style that blends so well with contemporary furnishings. I have always liked the intricacy of the line designs. I think that's one reason my grandchildren love to color them with colored pencils and markers. They are a lot of fun.
I think they play well in late February because they blend with St. Patrick's Day designs and somewhat relate in a historical way. These 2 plaques are called Celtic knots and can be done small as Clings, or larger as I have done them on the 10" round blanks.
You could also do them on the large clear plastic plates from the dollar or party stores.
The first octagonal design was painted with Glitter Silver and primary colors which goes well with rainbows and clover. It can also be done on an octagonal surface, if you are lucky enough to find one.
If you would like to make any of these interesting projects, go to the Pattens and Color Keys sectin of Project Categories (to the right of the home page) and click on Celtic Project Patterns & Color Keys for numbered patterns and Gallery Glass supply lists.
