Stained Glass PaintingBy Liz Fichtl (gordo) on June 10, 2010
|I've loved stained glass since I was a child. The colors just thrill me. I am especially fond of Louis Comfort Tiffany's stained glass work. Its just that I don't want to work with glass cutting, lead came and all that soldering. I came up with an alternate and effective solution. Painted stained glass!|

I've loved stained glass since I was a child. The colors just thrill me. I am especially fond of Louis Comfort Tiffany's stained glass work. Its just that I don't want to work with glass cutting, lead came and all that soldering. I came up with an alternate and effective solution. Painted stained glass!
Select your design from a book or photograph.
Print the individual sections of the design, then tape them on to the window for easy reference (line placement, color).
After you've sketched part (or all) of your design on the window with your Sharpie, begin painting in your "lead." Use black One Shot.
Finished with my "leading." Time to lay in our colors!
Laying in transparencies of color.
In order to maintain washability of your new stained glass window, give it a few coats of clear acrylic (Krylon) spray.
Clean with mild dish washing detergent. Rub gently now!
I hope this inspires you! I'll post other stained glass paintings in my cubit soon. Good luck with all of your projects!
