Number One Dad Suncatcher

This makes a great Father's day gift. Tell him he's the number one dad and have him hang this beautiful Plaid suncatcher on the window. This craft can be made in only six steps.

Materials:


  • 16008 - Gallery Glass ® Window Color™ - Kelly Green, 2 oz.
  • 16012 - Gallery Glass ® Window Color™ - Royal Blue, 2 oz.
  • 16022 - Gallery Glass ® Window Color™ - Clear Frost, 2 oz.

Steps:

  1. Clean and dry Round Blank.
     
  2. Place Round Blank over pattern and tape in place.
     
  3. Following the pattern lines, lead the design by squeezing Liquid Leading from the bottle onto the blank. Let dry at least 8 hours.
     
  4. Fill in the design with Window Color. The numbers on the pattern correspond to the last three numbers of the Window Color number. Use the combing tool to smooth paint and eliminate bubbles.

Step 2 reads Place Round Blank over pattern and tape in place. What pattern?

Hi there, this will be deleted from the project - perhaps there was an accompanying pattern at one point but now there is not. It seems you would have to free-hand the design. Sorry for the inconvenience! - Julia from FaveCrafts

I love Gallery Glass. I work at a High School. With all the new equipment in classrooms the Transparency films became obsolete. The teachers discarded and I took them to do projects for my Sunday School kids ages 5-8. br But, I can not find Gallery Glass paints anywhere in my town. Could you please send me a list of suppliers? Thanks!!
