    Hi there Barb,

    Use a picture behind your glass to trace or give a guide. Use Sharpie to outline your design. Buy Brushes and Glass Paints from Craft Shop, and away you go. You can re-line your work before you complete. Have Fun!...... Or ofcourse you could always use a Cling or Sticky back Plastic too.........

    You can't turn glass into stained glass all you can do is fake it. Lots of good suggestions above

    Hi Barb. Pick the picture that you want on your stained glass. Tape it to the back of the glass. Clean the surface with water and vinegar and allow to dry. To begin, you will need a bottle of glue. (The glue has to be the kind with a tip) Remove one-third of the glue from the bottle. Add black paint to fill the bottle and mix well. Using the tip of the glue bottle, outline your picture. Let it dry overnight or longer. Then apply paints to complete your picture. The black glue lines will be slightly raised and will keep your paints from spreading. This sounds like a fun project. Good luck Barb.
