Hand Painted Glass Tutorial

I use 4mm windowpane strips, that measure 1" x 12". I have my glass guy cut them in the strips. They run 2 strips for one cent. There is thinner glass, but I use 4mm because it is the same thickness as mirror. What ever thickness you decide, make sure you ALWAYS get the same thickness, so you can mix the leftovers of one project with another. Sometimes there is an oil on the glass that must be wiped off with a paper towel before you paint.



  1. I love it! thanks for explaining this, I live and mosaic in Thailand and I can't find any stained glass, my favorite to work with. I'll give this a try! Deb

  2. Have you tried this with Tempera paints.
