So here are the final steps in my faux stained glass project!
When we left off I had just finished my paper drawing of the stained glass design. Just to refresh your memory it looked a little something like this:
Next step: I went to Lowe’s and got four pieces of Plexiglas custom cut to fit the four panels in the coffee table. It was surprisingly inexpensive.
The next thing was to tape my paper design to one side of the Plexiglas. I peeled off the protective plastic on the opposite side of the glass and retraced the image onto the glass using gun metal gray acrylic paint. Then I removed the paper design and touched up any areas that I felt needed it on the glass.
Once it was completely dry I flipped the Plexiglas over and removed the plastic from the side I hadn’t painted yet. Then I colored in my image using acrylic paint and a wide brush.
And here it is serving it’s new purpose:
No, it doesn’t look exactly like stained glass, but I’m going to enjoy it anyway. Let me know what you think!
