I am a big fan of DecoArt’s glass paints. I have made several projects with their paints in the past (Antique Glass Knob, Acrylic Chevron Necklace, Apothecary Jar Update), but one line I had not tried was the glass stain paints.
These paints totally made me think of the beach and nautical. When I think beach and nautical, I think of my husband and I’s last big vacation before we settled down to have kids! We flew up from Tennessee to Philadelphia (I love that city) then drove back home in a rental car all the way down the east coast.
There are so many lighthouses along the east coast! We stopped at nearly all of them between New Jersey and North Carolina. Did you know lighthouses come in all shapes and sizes? And colors! But the one that stands out most in my mind is Cape Hatteras in the Outer Banks. It is massive! And we were ambitious enough to climb to the top. And it inspired me to recreate it in stain glass!
I started with a tall vase. Mine happens to be square in shape, but any tall shape will do. I used the DecoArt Glass Stain in black and white, and you will also need the black leading to create your stain glass pattern.
Take the leading paint and draw lines following the lines of the twine.
Allow the lead lines to dry overnight then fill in the spaces with the black and white glass stains. You will need to work in sections. The glass stains need to dry flat so this is definitely a multi-day project. The stain needs at least 24 hours to dry completely, but you can allow 4-6 hours per section to dry before moving to the next section.
