easy to do, easy to remove! how can you go wrong with these 'stained glass' windows?

Step 1:

gather the supplies:

Windex, paper towels, acrylic paints in the desired colors, skinny masking tape and a sponge brush. you'll also need a bowl to put your paint into.
<p>I'm thinking of trying this on clear laminate cut into inserts to cling to the windows of my classroom. That way I won't catch heat for damaging the building, and I can remove them. Alternately, I'm thinking of printing onto transparancy stock...</p>
I loved stained glass windows; the art and talent that is put into them! I want to purchase some <a href="http://www.edi-inc.com" rel="nofollow">windows in Naperville</a> and try to learn how to stain them.
There is 1/4&quot; masking tape if you wanted a narrower line between.&nbsp; It's sold at art supply and quilting shops.
love it! al experiment with my aquarium!&nbsp;:)<br /> <br /> can this kind of paint be removed? how?<br /> like what if u found a new cool design and u'd like to change it. <br /> <br /> how long does d paint last til it fades in color? <br /> <br /> tnx <br /> <br />
thanks for the comment. it can be removed very easily. i simply spray a little Windex on it and use a razorblade. it peels right off in long strips. the red and green was the 2nd color i've done my windows, they were green and orange before that (for Halloween a year or so ago)<br /> about fading...it depends on the amount of sun the window gets. the ones on the south and west of my house fade in around 6 months, the others fade more slowly. <br /> <br />
not bad! i hope i can find windex here!&nbsp;:) tnx<br />
I'm sure any glass cleaner would work fine.
I love this! I make real stained glass but can't find the time to make panels for all the windows I want to in my house. I'm going to do this on one of them, it looks like so much fun! Thanks for the idea. :)
That looks really cool, are you using regular acrylic craft paint, or do you need something special for glass?
thanks! it's just plain old acrylic craft paint!
That's a very good effect, On you first picture it almost appears the the glass is bevelled in the gaps in between the colours. 5*
thank you!
