I have been wanting to make faux stained glass. I have my glass, designs, liquid leading along with lead lines. I even have my paints. Can you make textures using only Gallery Glass?

    Hi Lari. I'm Cindy. You could use texture paste. Also white school glue mixed with black paint could be used for depth. It can also be used to outline your picture. Once dry, paint will stay inside glue lines.

    Maybe mix sand, cotton.. with small amounts of paint!?

    I use gallery glass however elmers makes a clear elmers glue (other brands do too) you can use instead. I've found it in dollar stores it's marketed for making the slimy goop kids love. You can even add a tiny drop or two of food coloring for color

    Hint. If at all possible lay the piece your working on horizontally until glue or gallery glass dries. I used a toothpick to make swirls.
