I’m going to replace the real, breakable stuff with faux stained glass panels made out of Plexiglas!
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
Step 1: I spent some time perusing pictures of stained glass windows and how to videos, and I cobbled together a version of my own based on all of them. Then I drew a rough draft.
Step 2: Once I was satisfied with the general look of the thing I darkened in all the lines and retraced the image onto a piece of news print using a wide tipped permanent marker. This way the lines are thicker and I can get a good idea of how all the detailing will look in the end.
And that’s it for now, but next I plan on tapping this picture to the back of the Plexiglas and re-tracing it yet again, but with a gun metal gray acrylic paint this time. I will be sure to keep you updated on the process. In the meantime let me know what you think, and please, if you have any suggestions feel free to pass them my way!
