Faux stained glass art is such a fun art project for pre-teens and teens. Although younger kids can do this too, they will need more assistance. This will make beautiful art for their bedrooms that can be wiped clean and re-created as often as they like.

Instructions for making stained glass art

Step 1 for making faux stained glass windows is to mix homemade paint using glue, acrylic paint, or food coloring.
Combine white glue and black acrylic paint to make outline paint for stained glass.

Step 1

Use our detailed instructions to make faux homemade window paint for kids.

Once you have made your paint for coloring in your window you need to make the outline paint. Pour black acrylic paint into a 3/4 full bottle of white glue. Mix it up, and then test it on a piece of paper to make sure it comes out black and not grey. Add more paint if you need to.

Step 2 is to put a coloring page underneath the glass and trace over it with faux stained glass outline paint in black

Step 2

Remove the glass from the frame. Put the coloring page underneath the glass. Trace over the coloring page using the bottle of black paint combined with glue. You don’t need to trace over every fine detail, just the main ones until you get more practice. Set the glass aside to dry completely before moving on to step 3.

Stained glass art for kids’ craft tip:  Test the bottle of black paint on a piece of paper. We found it worked better to keep the lid partially closed. If we opened it all the way the black paint came out too quickly and was harder to trace over the images.

Step 3 is to paint inside the black outline to create a colorful stained glass image that you can see through.
Use homemade stained glass paint to color inside your outline.

Step 3

Use a brush to color inside the black outlines with pretty colors. Try blending colors together to see if they make a new color.

Instructions

  1. Put 2 tablespoons of clear glue, 1 tsp of dish soap, and a little bit of food dye into a container and mix together. Don’t worry if it looks dark, it will be much lighter when painted on glass. Repeat this step to make as many colors as you like.
