Make your own Faux Stained Glass using only glue and Acrylic Paint! Imagine the beautiful results you can achieve with very little outlay, unlike real stained glass which is extremely expensive.
You can even use glass panels and windows in your own home. This would be ideal for side lights in entry halls, bathroom windows and also when you need to hide off walls and fences.
Stained Glass allows sunlight but can obscure the unsightly. It’s the perfect compromise really with unlimited uses and potential.
