What is the best way to apply Gallery Glass Window Color to my project?
First outline shape along the leading lines. Then fill in the rest of the area with color. It is very important that your Window Color touches the leading otherwise you will have holes in your design and will not be able to use the modular method. If there are bubbles in the paint color, gently tap the underside of your project until they pop. If you are painting on a curved surface, like an ornament, and cannot tap the bottom, use the combing tool to smooth out the area.
I would love the look of Gallery Glass, but I'm nervous about applying it directly to my window glass. Is there any other way I can achieve the look of stained glass for my windows?
If you don't want to apply Gallery Glass directly to your windows, you can still create a lovely window design using sheets of plexiglass or acrylic sheets and inserting them on the inside of your window.
The thickness should be about 1/4", especially if you're creating a design for a larger window. Home Depot, Lowes, True Value and other home improvement stores should carry this material and can cut straight, regular sizes. Specialty glass shops can cut circular or oval pieces.
What can I do about the bubbles that appear in my Gallery Glass® project?
Where possible, tapping the back of a freshly painted surface will help pop fine bubbles. Larger bubbles can be removed by combing or stroking back and forth in straight lines through the paint with the tip of the bottle or the combing tool. We recommend leaving the small bubbles in Crystal Clear as they add to the cathedral-glass look.
