There are so many ways you can use your crafting supplies to create fabulous home décor elements and to alter things around the house. One thing I have always wanted to try is making a stained glass window but without all the really hard work – so I grabbed some StazOn Studio Glaze Gold and Orange Zest and made my own faux window.
Skill Level: Beginner
Time: 15 minutes plus drying time left overnight.
I cut a sunflower to mimic spring on my Cricut Maker machine out of black permanent outdoor vinyl. Weed the design and add transfer tape.
Place the design onto a sheet of clear acrylic cut to size. Mine measures 8×8”. Then burnish the design onto your acrylic sheet to transfer the design.
TIP: If you don’t have a cutting machine you could do this step by stamping a large image onto your acrylic sheeting using Black StazOn ink instead. Then proceed to finish the same way I did. I wanted bold black lines, but the StazOn stamped images are great if you have a bold stamp design.
I selected two colors of StazOn Glaze and started coloring my design on the back of the acrylic sheet. I did this really roughly. It doesn’t matter that you go over the lines since the black lines will hide that.
Once the first layer StazOn is dry, you can go back and add another layer to fill in any other areas that may still be open or exposed as the glaze dries and settles. I may skip this step since I am quite happy with how it turned out.
And there you have a really pretty faux stained-glass window – or in my case, I think I pop it into a frame and hang it up on a white wall – I rather like the look of this quick and easy project.
Note that the back of the image will have loads of texture and be uneven, and the front will be perfectly smooth and looks amazing.
Now go have fun with your StazOn Studio Glaze.
