Want to be an instant (Oil/Watercolor) artist? Remove the glass from a new picture frame and tape the glass down over the picture image you desire. Get oils or watercolor paints and paint the picture on the glass; using the picture as your 'copy guide (better than 'by the numbers').

When finished, let dry and insert it in the frame with non-painted glass surface on the exterior. Now you have a reproduction and you did it (who is to know that it is a 'mirror image').

This will not work for watercolors. Might not even work for oils. The color will just bead up on the glass.

I agree with abundantliving777 on that. Won't work.
