Faux Stained Glass


The 5th/6th graders have been studying Medieval art and we viewed a powerpoint about stained glass windows in cathedrals.  The students use glass stain on pieces of plexiglass to make their own picture.  We first drew the lines on a piece of paper.  Then, we placed the plexiglass on top of the paper.  They painted their black lines first and let them dry.  Then they use the glass paint to color in the areas.

These are beautiful! What kind of paint did you use for the black lines? I would love to try this!

Thanks! We used the black paint that came in the glass stain package. I think it is just regular acrylic paint though, that's what it appears to be. Mary, I have already discovered your blog, it is wonderful and I love all the art that you have posted!! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Hi Marcia,

I just found this post of yours on Pinterest. I was hoping you could direct me to a source for the plexiglass you used for this project, the size of the pieces and the brand of glass paint you used. Thanks so much!

Hi Pat! We actually bought the plexiglass from an Ace hardware store near our house. The guy there cut all the pieces for us (I'm not sure of the charge as the other art teacher that works at my school got all of these cut). The paint was used was the kind that you can use for those suncatchers. We used these: http://www.enasco.com/product/9727778 and these: http://www.enasco.com/product/9725029C
this year I am also going to try these: http://www.enasco.com/product/9715148 (because we got a TON of them donated free!) good luck!
