I wanted to experiment with using acrylic paint and regular glass to make "stained glass". I have worked with the stained glass and it's a lot of fun, and you can be very creative. But recently, I have become more interested in recyling available materials, and making do with what I have. Picture frame glass is plentiful at garage sales all the time, and is very affordable. I have tons of acrylic paint collected and used thru the years, so why not combine the two and see what happens? Hence this instructable.
