Advice needed for changing the color of a stained glass window.

The front door has a stained glass panel in the yellows and gold range. Any suggestions on how to clean stained glass and then change its color? Can they be painted? Do the non-adhesive films work?

    As long as you want to go with oranges and greens, this can be ultra easy. Get little bottles of stained glass paint in red and blue, and maybe white or silver. Dry brush the new paint over the ones you want to change, remembering basic color combos: Red + yellow = orange. Blue + yellow = green. Red + blue = purple. Combining white or silver brings lighter, brighter colors. Best wishes 😇

    You can also purchase window inserts to replace the glass in your exterior door. These can be found at most hardware stores.

    I have the same problem with our entrance door. Did you end up painting the glass? If yes, can you please post a picture? Thanks!
