    Black outlines and clear colored paints. It has been too long for me to remember, but I used to thin my acrylics with something to give just a touch of color on the white I would coat my canvas with before I painted a picture to tone down the white background. Someone in the know at a hobby shop could be able to help you with what it was that I added to it. You want to add until it is still clear enough for the light to get through and still be able to have the coloring you want.

    Two alternatives are decoupage tissue paper on glass or use glass paints that are translucent.

    Visit Hobby Lobby or Michael's for Gallery Glass and accessories. They also have instructional books on stained glass. I've used the clear Gallery Glass for living room windows. Goes on white using your fingers, dries clear but provides a textured look for privacy. Adding colors is wonderful. Best of luck.

    Get a window you like. Buy stained glass paint, craft stores have coupons weekly buy that way , it's cheaper. You can draw with permanent marker or leading they sell with glass pain. A good place for patterns are the adult coloring books. Find a pattern, tape facing in on window, flip over, trace leading lines, color with glass paint and let dry. Remove pattern and you have a stained glass window. Looks good from both sides too.

    Mix black paint and glue to make the outline. Half of each will work. Then fill in with glass paint. You can purchase glass paint at your local home improvement store, hobby store, Wal Mart or on-line. I have a great piece of beveled glass that I intend to use this method on. I would be grateful if you posted your project on Home Talk. I would love to see your finished product.

    there are special paints for this..."leading" strips can be affixed to plain glass, then fill the design with your semi opaque or sheer tint paints that simulate different types of art glass effects.

    The hobby stores have stained glass paint and also there is this bottle of stuff i don't remember the name but you squirt lines on plastic that dry like the lead on a window. You peel them off put over your outline and fill in with the stain glass paint.
