By Liz Fichtl 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 got this question solved a long time ago but am only now ready to start work and I have forgotten.

The link you posted for paint and where to buy it does not specifically note that this paint is transparent/transluscent. I assume it is or you wouldn't have said it was the one.

Can you confirm for me before I spend the money????

The paint is NOT transparent. You must thin it down with mineral spirits, then add layers of paint until you have the depth of transparency you desire.
Visit me at A Little Bit Of Paradise for info about Brugmansia, Passiflora, Amaryllis and tropical plants!

Thank you for clarifying that AND for being specific about how what to thin it with!

I have a leafy refuge where big things happen in a small way. We grow and hybridize Brugmansia, Passiflora, Amaryllis and a host of other tropical plants and flowering vines. We also enjoy art, writing, music, creating video presentations and woodworking.
