* glitter painting photo conversion tool

Posted on November 8th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Art, Martha.

The latest issue of Martha Stewart has an article about “glitter painting” in it, which is essentially a several-pages-long advertisement for the Martha glitters.  I haven’t yet been able to bring myself to pay that much for the complete set of 24, but I am hoping someone with a 50% off Michael’s coupon might get it for me for xmas.  Anyway, the idea is paint by number with glue and glitter.

The best part is the cute tool on the website to convert photos into simpler, glitterize-able images.  You have to register, but whatever.  It is really neat.  I’ve been playing with it for like the last hour with random photos that happen to be on my computer.  This is my favorite (look at the trees!), and I got a few good cat ones too.

    The photo looks like you ran it through the cutout filter in photoshop … so if you have a copy of photoshop, you could do this on your own. The nice thing about the photoshop filter is you can play with the parameters for number of colors and how closely it follows the contours of your image.

    And, yes!, those trees are awesome!
