The look of stained glass is a great way to update the look of any area in your home. You will not need to spend money on real stained glass to achieve the look you desire. There is a way to make a stained glass display at home that will look similar to the real thing. All you need to do to make faux stained glass is to obtain the tools and supplies that are required.

The key to making faux stained glass is to use a real piece of glass. One option is to take the glass from an old picture frame or look for pieces of glass at any local thrift store. The key to making faux stained glass is using paint to mimic the look of real stained glass. You first need to have a design to use for this project.

You will need to make an outline for your faux stained glass. This can be done by tracing an outline on a piece of construction paper by using a ruler or another straight edge. The next step is to make the frame for your project from metal strips you can find at most craft stores.

One thing about making faux stained glass is using paint that is translucent. If you do not have a suitable type of paint, then the result may not turn out as expected. You will need to use a glass paint, as this is a product that will easily mimic the look of real stained glass.

Trail and error should be expected to make faux stained glass as you might not get the desired result the first time. You might want to practice painting on a scrap piece of glass. This will be the best way to keep from having to start the project over if you make a mistake.
