This is another one of those practice projects for me. I want to make a great big faux stained glass window but I figured I better try my hand at a little one first. Especially since I had no idea if it would work or not.
Luckily for me I just happened to have gotten the frame for $1.00 at a garage sale so I gave it a try and I think it came out great! If I do say so myself ;)
I started out by tracing the image onto the glass with black puff paint.
I got the image from Free Color Pages For Mom. They have all kinds of really cool and free printable color pages. Follow the link to check them out. Then, I picked out my paint colors and mixed a few drops each with regular white glue that was 50% watered down. This is so the glue and paint mix will dry clearer.
When filling in the shapes you want to push the paint around rather than actually paint it. Get as close to the puff paint as you can with out spilling over into another shape of a different color. It's ok if you paint the puff paint because the side with the paint on it will be to the back.
Let it dry and the flip it over and there you go... faux stained glass. I put the piece of glass back into the frame without the backing and now I have a little stained glass picture!
I love this inexpensive project and now that I know it works I can move on to planning the picture for the big one I want to make... Any suggestions?
