Picture it.....3rd grade art class in early December sometime in the late 70s and I'm rocking a tissue paper stained glass & construction paper masterpiece for the holidays. Cut to a few weeks ago when I channeled that chubby, glue obsessed 3rd grader and made a tissue stained glass project that's a bit more permanent. I coated this number with Glaze Coat resin and now I can have it in my house or garden forever! This is a fantastic way to UP-style an old window pane or even make a piece of art. Remember to stick to the basics, use simple craft supplies and always Make Your Mark!
Just needs a little light

STUFF I USED
Old window pane
Glaze Coat (2 part epoxy resin)
1. & 2. Sketch out your design and place it under the glass window to use as a guide
3. 4. & 5. Cut out large ovals, 1" circles and different color green leaves in tissue paper
6. Cut small oval holes in the large ovals and then use that smaller oval as a guide to cut out the same size oval in a different color
*These for for the center of the large oval flowers
7. 8. & 9. Decoupage the large oval flowers and the different color centers on the glass and then add the dots and leaves
10. Fill the empty spaces with large light green leaves
11. Outline the flowers, dots and leaves with the Allure in Gloss black and let dry
12. & 13. Mix the Glaze Coat (follow instructions) and pour it on top of the glass
14. Evenly spread the Glaze Coat with a sponge brush
15. Pop the bubbles with a small torch OR a long arm lighter
*Cover and let cure
Let the sunshine in!
