Hello all! First post!

I am trying to create faux window panes on five 12x12 mirrors.  I want to create an antiqued pane glass look on these mirrors and want the faux panes to be 3D and as real looking as possible.  My first idea was to use half round wooden dowels but that won't work.  My second idea was to use puffy paint but the puffy paint peels off the glass mirror pretty easily.
I will be spray painting the mirror.  I can spray the mirror before adding the puffy paint if it will help the puffy paint to stick more permanently.  

My Inspiration:

Hi! Smiley

The product called Gallery Glass is paint for glass, and it simulates the look of stained glass. One of the products they make is called Instant Lead. It is strips that looks like lead but are adhesive on the back. They will give you the look you want and will not come off till or unless you scrap it.
