I made this super cute STAIN GLASS PENCIL JAR using DecoArt’s Glass Stain. This is the perfect back-to-school teacher gift!
Glass Stain is a new product (found at Michael’s Craft Stores) used to transform glass into a work of art. Seriously, you are going to love this stuff! There are so man possibilities.
Let’s get started!
Tall glass canister (Hobby Lobby)
Red GLASS STAIN PEARLESCENT
Green GLASS STAIN
Yellow GLASS STAIN PEARLSESCENT
Black Leading GLASS STAIN Dimensional Outliner
some Apple vinyl stencils
First, randomly put on the vinyl stencils.
Trace just inside the stencil with the BLACK LEADING GLASS STAIN. This stuff provides the outline you will put the Glass Stain in. It keeps the Glass Stain from running all over the glass.
Remove the stencils while the Black Leading is still wet. Let it try for an hour or so. It won’t drip so you can do all the apples and set the jar aside. Be careful not to smudge the other apples. It’s not fun to try to fix them.
This next part is just like coloring! Fill in the outlined apple. I put a dime sized amount of red in the middle and rubbed it around with the tip of the bottle. This stuff WILL DRIP, so you have to lay it flat until it is dry which also takes a couple of hours.
YOU CANNOT WORK ON THE NEXT APPLE UNTIL THE LAST ONE IS DRY!
I know it seems like it took a while to make this project, but it was really easy and the end result is adorable!
I loved using this Glass Stain and have so many other projects I want to tackle with it. My daughter has a plain white glass piggy bank that I plan to adorn soon. You could personalize so many things with this product!
