|MAC Painted windows: stitching witch and black cat - Scarecrow Mania 2016|
I can't remember ever painting any windows, though some years ago, one of my co-workers had a project in planning to spruce up a vacant building during Black Bear. The building owner chose not to do windows that year. I have painted on small pieces of glass and knew that it would be tricky. In some ways, they were easier than expected, and in other ways, harder. I knew that painted glass tends to look streakier on the painted side, but even I wasn't prepared for how smooth and slick they would look on the outside. I did a quick draft on paper, then went straight to the windows. The hardest part was reaching the tops of the windows. All I had was a molded-plastic stepstool, so that was a stretch.
Technical info: I used plain craft-acrylic paints (not specially formulated for glass or anything). I mixed in a little bit of dishwashing liquid to make it easier to peel off later. I didn't get to do the peeling myself, so I'll have to ask how it went.
