Glass Painting

photo showing glass painting Glass painted picture
Under construction and.... ....the finished painting.
1. Place a sheet of acetate (plastic sheeting) over a drawn outline, in this case a floral design.
2. Squeeze the liquid lead beading from the bottle onto the sheet along the outline of the design and leave it to dry overnight.
3. Fill in the design with the colouring paints straight from the bottle. Apply thickly.
4.To achieve a smooth texture 'comb' the paint with either a cocktail stick or a combing tool (provided with the larger kits). The picture on the left shows this being done.
5. Leave it to dry overnight. The paint is opaque when applied but clears to simulate stained glass as it dries.

Usage: The finished design can be peeled off the sheeting and placed directly onto a window pane. Since the back is smooth it clings to the glass without adhesive. Alternatively, it could be left on the acetate and hung from a window frame. There are several ways of using the glass paint. I have made some 'glass' flowers with it and decorated some lampshades.
