Simple Gothic Windows

On order were gothic window props, five at three by five feet.

On order were gothic window props, five at three by five feet. I reviewed some reference material with the requirements and budget in mind, sketching ideas and making notes about materials.

Finishing

I positioned the strip evenly front-to-back and ran a bead of wood glue all the way around.

Painted the with gold and copper spray paint, finished with metallic acrylic paint in a couple colors. I painted lines to suggest some of the detail that wan’t actually there in a muddy mix of purple and gold. I used a paintbrush I made with bristles I borrowed from the push broom, then I went home and ordered a set of sword stripers.

The medallion at the top was made from the pieces that were cut out of the window frames, a teardrop with a disc on top. I made a stencil and sprayed a little bit of red to finish each of them off.
