Has anyone done stained glass with glue and acrylic paint?

I've been thinking about doing my front door and side windows. Any Suggestions?

    Yes i have. But beware.....the sun can cause it to drip ....or peel off. Your better to mix your paint with clear varnish or use a paint for glass.

    Glass paints will look better than acrylic and last longer. they are formulated to spread/brush on smoother but keep a rich even color without showing brush marks. Get a piece of broken scrap glass to experiment with first. There are also better materials to use than glue for the sectioning of the colors. Since you will be working on the glass while it is vertical, rather than flat on a table, these "grout"/stained glass lead products will not run like glues can. You can even get them in colors like black, brown,etc to make them more realistic. Show us your before and after!

    Look into Gallery Glass, you can usually find premade "lead" in straight lines.

      Yes, I saw some videos using gallery glass. I was thinking of mixing my own, but I may stick to the gallery glass and add paint to it. also the lead will give me straighter lines than I could do. Thanks!

    hot Glue will come off the glass in the cold. Elmer’s is water soluble so choose your glue carefully. Also your paint choices. May be nice for awhile then you could change it

    I used the strips and some black gallery glass for intersections
