How To Paint On Glass

This volume helps readers reproduce the look of stained glass, through the craft of glass painting. Transparent paints combine with piped "liquid leading" from a tube to create a wide variety of desirable objects made from glass, plastic or acetate. Some of the items it is possible to create include window panels, candle-shades, acetate greeting cards, easy-to-make suncatchers, and boxes and baubles. Old jam jars, bottles and acetate packaging can be transformed into attractive items. The book shows readers: how to paint on both flat and vertical surfaces, how to create paint effects; how to add exotic "jewels", beads, and gold and silver "leading"; and other techniques, such as using shrink plastic and creating stick-on, peel-off temporary suncatchers.
