DIY seeded Glass effect?

by Rachael

I would like to recreate the appearance of seeded glass on plain glass kitchen cabinet doors . I’ve seen frosted window film but that’s not the look I’m after.

    you can buy seeded glass from a stained glass supplier. it cuts easily with a GOOD glass cutter. dip the blade in oil before each cut. use a steel straight edge to cut your lines.

    wish you lived closer, I could help you. I had a stained glass shop.

    Home decor stores carry a cling vinyl that simulates stained glass and other effects. Try Home Depot.

    Or Google the product for a store in your area.

    Good luck. It will look stunning!

    I know it's late, but they make this stuff you can purchase at hobby lobby called gallery glass in crystal clear. When applied heavily, and using a toothpick to swirl in a fast zigzag motion and then left to dry it looks almost exactly like german seeded glass. It's a messy process but when dry, if you don't like the result you can peel it off ( after a few days it will cure and this will be harder to remove but still not permanent, just durable) i hate window clings, they don't look real and this technique is the closest ive ever gotten to recreating seeded glass. You can search Pinterest but i've only found two or three tutorials for it and i believe they just used brushed or their fingers which gave a rippled effect.
