Faux Stained Glass

By:

If a stained glass window is out of your budget or difficult to find, create your own "stained glass" with Tilano's Image Transfer Kit. This computer craft project is a clever way to get the appearance of stained glass at a fraction of the price!

Materials:

  • Glass of any size and thickness- If you go to a glass shop they may have scrap pieces for free. I used an 11x14 piece of glass from an old picture frame. Thrift stores are also a great place to look for pieces of glass.
  • Tilano’s Image Transfer Kit ($29.99)
  • Glass mounting hardware to hang glass (see diagram at bottom)- optional
  • Wire- if you are going to hang your glass artwork
  • A computer to create stained glass ‘image’. You can also find stained glass patterns online.
     

Instructions:

  1. In Word (or a paint/editing program) create a stained glass look. I inserted shapes, and used rectangle boxes. I filled in each rectangle to be a different color and added a thick black border to each box. You can really create any stained glass look that you like and in any shape. Here is my image printed on Tilano's imaging paper.

  2. Print out your image onto the Tilano Imaging Paper and then follow the kit instructions. Apply the medium to the surface. I applied 2 coats to my image.

  3. Coat your glass with medium using long, smooth brush strokes. I applied 2 coats to the glass.

  4. When you peel off the paper backing, peel slowly. After the paper backing is off, apply 2-3 coats of medium to seal, with long brush strokes.

  5. If you would like to hang your glass, I would suggest going to a building depot and purchase 4 glass clamps like the one shown below. You can purchase any style but it is important that the clamps have rubber on each side of the glass so the clamps do not crack the glass. Once you tighten them onto your glass (not too tight- just snug) wrap wire around the end of each screw to create a wire hanger. You can also hang your glass by putting it back into the picture frame you used.
