Painting glass

We love painting and are always on the lookout for new ways to do it! So when I came across a post about stained glass windows – I thought – we’ve got to try that. Mind you, we have gone a fair bit simpler and more ‘freestyle’ here 🙂

We used the glass from some photo frames that I bought at a local $2 shop and some lovely acrylic paint mixed with pva glue (1:1). Master D loved the bright vibrant colours and swirling them around on the glass.

And I even got in on the action 🙂 Aren’t they pretty!

Warm wishes, Kelly

    What a fun idea. Where are you going to use them? Are you going to put them back in the frames?

    Thanks everyone for your lovely comments 🙂 Shiloh, I’m looking out for some suction caps and hope they might hold them on the window – fingers crossed! Warm wishes, kelly

    Neat, neat project. So you mixed the paint with some glue? That probably helps to create transulancy?

  • Reply Happy Whimsical Hearts November 26, 2011 at 11:34 pm

    Hi Miss Moe, yes we did mix the acrylic paint with pva glue with a ratio of 1:1, and it did help with the translucency – good luck with them, they were great fun! Kelly

    I really like them. Do you have a way to hang them in your windows? I am trying to imagine how to do that without a hole cut in them. Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness. I love all your posts.

    I’m glad you enjoy reading my posts Laura :-)I’m on the look out for double sided suction caps to hopefully hang our glass paintings, so fingers crossed! Warm wishes, Kelly
