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.

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...

There is 1/4" masking tape if you wanted a narrower line between.  It's sold at art supply and quilting shops.

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)
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.

not bad! i hope i can find windex here! :) tnx

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*
