Why is there bacon in the soap??

I've been wanting to do a stained glass effect on my sliding glass door in my apartment. Because I rent it has to be 100% removable for when I move out.

I looked at the Gallery Glass kits and it seems that those are perminent. Does anyone have an alternative idea? Something that will peel or wash off. I'd prefer not to have to razor scrape it off if possible.

Thanks in advance!

Sharpies, they do wash off with  very little elbow grease.  Keep in mind that the sun will bleach them out eventually.  also childrens washable felts and dry erase markers...I let my children practice abc's, 123's and other homework on the sliding glass doors as well as colour on it on rainy days and can vouch for all types.

Gallery Glass can be temporary. To remove it from a window you score it with any sharp blade, and then peel it off.

Someone had a featured project with acrylic paints on windows a while back, didn't they? Outlines in opaque black paint to make it look like leaded glass. It seems like that would peel off easily. It peels off of your skin pretty easily if you accidentally paint your hand, after all.

I paint my windows with acrylic paint.  It was one of my first posts when I joined Craftster: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74642.msg699973#msg699973

It scrapes off very easily (with a blade, sorry) - the key is to dampen it first.  If you scrape it dry it comes off in little flakes that make a huge mess, if it's wet it comes off in big stretchy sheets.

Awsome, thanks so much for the replies.  A friend of mine off of Crafster sugjested tempera powder in elmer's glue. She used to work in a daycare.

I'll post pictures as soon as I get it done! It should be awsome!
