Reverse Glass Painting With Decocolor Markers

Using the reverse glass painting technique I learned from my Mom years ago, this time using Decocolor paint markers.
Reverse Glass Painting with Decocolor Markers.
Pick out the image you want to use. For me, the simpler the better.
(Stained Glass Clip Art from Coloring Hub)
1. Lay Clip Art under glass and trace around image with black Decocolor marker.
2. Use ruler for outside areas to get those lines straight. Make sure to leave time for the ink to dry before laying ruler on top the previous line.
Here is the design outlined. I like using the fine point marker better than the extra fine marker.
3. Flip the glass over and do your coloring on the reverse side of the glass. Make sure to color all the way to the edge of the lines.
4. Color in the remaining sections. Make sure to get the colors as close as possible. Here is the back of the glass with the full design colored in.
Marvy Uchida also makes this Decocolor Remover which I absolutely love. It has saved me on more than one occasion. It works wonderful to correct any mistakes you make. I recommend you pick one of those up also. (FYI: it also removes alcohol ink from non porous surfaces)

    Thanks! I did something very similar to my aunts old windows that I kept from her house. I used stain glass paint and there is a photo of them on my page. didn't know how well it would hold up but that was seven years ago and they still look beautiful.
