I'd like to do a faux stained glass effect for an awkward window I have. It is hard to reach.
All tutorials on the net seem to be that you draw the design on a piece of glass that is laid over your sketch, and then hang it up.

I'd like to somehow draw and paint the design onto a something, then peel it off the something and stick it to the window.

Does the collective wisdom of Craftster think waxed paper would work?


PS: Didnt put in glass crafts cause everything there seemed to be real glass, not fake glass you squeeze from a bottle.

How about acetate sheets?

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Ditto on the acetate.  Then you don't even have to peel it off, just hand the entire piece of acetate up.

I did a trial on parchment paper and semi transparent file folders. On both the leading peeled off nicely and was pretty restickable.

Thanks Craftsters!
