    Will this wash off?. Great idea & want to try it.

      If it's gallery glass, it peels off. I used it some years ago in a kitchenette window. I had shutters with cloth on the bottom windows and did an ivy pattern with the product. It's an acrylic. You can pit it directly on the window or on a piece of plastic, like those inexpensive plastic cutting boards that come in a bag at the dollar store. If you want to trace something you put it under the cutting board or whatever you want to use--even on the glass window. People thought my window was leaded glass. Oh yes. There is an acrylic "lead" in a bottle or in pieces you can cut and bend to make your design. I loved using it. It was very easy, and you can see the outcome right here.

    Diane, great job. I am assuming it's Gallery Glass since you didn't answer my question.
