Stained glass lights up a space with an aura of mystery and romance. The interplay between light and color sparks the imagination, harks back to a time long gone.
The art of making stained glass has remained unchanged down through the millennia. The process requires time and patience, and an appreciation for color and line design.
On bright, sunlit days, the patchwork light that comes through stained windows can be extraordinary.
Do you have glass windows that scream for a much-needed facelift? Why don’t you try giving them a makeover by using stains?
No, no, we are not suggesting that you buy stained glass windows – that would be too expensive. If those windows are still good, why replace them at all, right?
Well, here’s a great project that could breathe life to those boring windows of yours. It involves faux staining. You don’t have to worry if you’re renting. These faux stains come off easily with soap and water. So what does this mean? If you change your mind and want a new pattern five months later, you’re good.
A do-it-yourself faux stained glass window’s a perfect opportunity for you to showcase your personality. You can be as conservative as you want to be – clean lines, neutral colors. Or you can go crazy with mosaics and bright hues. Your imagination is the only limit.
