Research/ Inspiration



  • Make stained glass from Fimo. The 'lead' is made from ordinary Fimo. Place your drawing of the window under a tempered glass plate or saucepan stand,  then lay out the 'lead' with grey Fimo. When that is baked, pour the liquid Fimo, coloured with a very little oil paint into the spaces for the glass. This is baked again and it lifts off the glass very easily.



  • Use acetate  or transparency sheets for laser printers, and print out designs from clip art. Paint on the opposite side as the printer ink will smear!
  • Gallery Glass paint for tinting the glass.



  • Try using black or grey button thread. either run the thread through glue and apply to the design, or draw the design with a glue syringe and lay the thread on it. (also see windows)
  • Lead tape from the golf store - Unroll a section of the tape, flatten it out on a cutting surface and cut the tape into thin strips for the leading. (1/32" to 1/16" ) Create a jig for uniform cuts. Remove the backing of the golf tape, stick it down to a starting point and work the strip over the lines of your design and pressing down when you have it right. Then press down again and cut off with your exacto knife. Depending on your design, there will be lots of cuts and restarts. When you have all your leading lines down, burnish gently with a stylus to make sure everything is firmly in place. The lead tape will create the little bumps where it crosses or joins and it will age properly. Tape on both sides of the glass for a more realistic look.  Once taping is completed, flood colour in the spaces with Gallery Glass stain.
