Faux Leaded Glass Window

I've always had a fondness for leaded glass windows, but the expense was out of reach. That is until I found a product that let me turn my boring old glass windows into faux stain glass beauties. I simply applied the product directly onto the existing window. And self-adhesive "leading" strips made the process so much easier. The full tutorial can be found on my blog post ...

    ...also if you can't do this on your windows because you rent, etc...you could always buy an old used window at a flea-market and use it to do this project on, That way you can "Cash and Carry" it with you. lol. Just set it in front of your window, size

    I did my front and back door with gallery glass but I did it on plexy glass that was cut to size...This way I can take it off to clean it or change it...

    I wonder...if you wanted equal appeal from both inside and outside, could you just do the lead and paint on both sides of the glass? This way it would look the same on both sides. It would probably add dimension to the image, also. Has anyone tried

    Ive been using gallery glass for years. It does take some skill to make it look like real leading and glass but with some practice it looks good just dont use on a window in an area that gets full sun as the color will fade out.

    I really have to say that I'm disappointed that you got rid of the stained glass with the colors. That's why I clicked on the link. The new is boring & why did you not do the two outer windows?
