Other Supplies

Patio lanterns with glass sides, Wood skewer, Egg carton

Instructions

  1. Group your paints by color: blues and purples together, greens together and yellows together.
  2. Place the lantern on its side so the glass pane is flat. For round lanterns, balance on an egg carton.
  3. Paint each pane a different variation of colors. Begin by squirting the Gallery Glass around the edge of the pane, fill in the pane with a second color. Mix the colors together with a skewer. Bounce the skewer “up and down” in the paint to get a rippled glass effect. Allow to dry for a few hours.
  4. Continue painting each pane until the entire lantern in painted.

Tips: Never shake Gallery Glass! If you do you might get an air bubble. If you get an air bubble, just pop it with the end of a sewing pin. If you make a mistake, wait for it to dry and just peel the mistake away.
