Faux Stained Glass

Many of you are already aware of my love for leaded glass. I hang old windows in place of pictures and make faux leaded glass:

I love leaded glass, and I do not want to cover it with curtains. So, when I added leaded glass to our bathroom window, I had a dilemma. Either curtain it or stain the glass. I do favor the plain leaded glass with no color, but a bathroom needs privacy, and that trumps design. I followed the instructions on a previous post and created this design.

I used a few inexpensive supplies from a craft store:

I dabbed on the blue first (which dried a bit more purple than I had hoped, but thankfully I still like it.

Next, I dabbed on the white. Here, I freaked out a bit. I did NOT want it to be white. I wanted it clear. It was an exercise in patience waiting for it to dry.

I am quite pleased with the results, and I love that all the light can shine in undisrupted by a curtain!
