Faux Stained Glass DIY Using Food Coloring And Mod Podge


Welcome back to DIY No Need To Cry with Ivelisse I got a request to make something with an
owl. So I went online and found this super cute
picture that I thought would look awesome using the food coloring and Mod Podge faux
stained glass technique. Faux stained glass DIY using food coloring
and mod podge. Please turn on your notification bells so
that you can get notified every time I upload a video. Let’s get started. Print out your image to the size you want. I printed mine out at 120% size. Using a piece of glass, I used the glass from
an old clock, you’re going to trace the image using a permeant marker. You can also use a piece of plastic. When tracing the image remember that you’re
going to be filling in each spot with color and if it’s to small it’s not going to
look right. I decided to leave out some of the very small
detail on owl as you see here. After I was done tracing I freehanded the
rest of the design. If you make a mistake, just use alcohol and
a cotton swab to clean it off. The next part is the part that takes the longest. Using any kind of puffy paint you want, I
used fabric puffy paint because it’s the one I have, outline the whole thing carefully. You might have to do part of it, let it dry
and then do the rest so you don’t smudge it. But If you happen to smudge it by mistake,
just clean it off right away and it’ll be fine. While that’s drying, matching some markers
to the food coloring I will be using, red, blue, yellow, green, purple and pink, which
I didn’t end up using. I colored in the printout to give me an idea
of how I was going to color the glass. I outlined the image in black first and then
colored it in. I end up changing the colors slightly when
I did the glass. Once the outline is fully dry, take a cotton
swab with alcohol and clean off all of the permanent marker markings that show. You don’t have to do this if you don’t
want to. I have to or it’ll drive me crazy with my
OCD self! Also, It takes about an hour, hour and a half
for the puffy paint to dry. I always leave mine overnight just to make
sure. Now it’s time for the fun part, coloring
it in! Pour a little bit of Mod Podge Super Gloss
Brilliant in a small container… I use my old egg containers. I put about 4 drops of food coloring and mix
it up. When mixing it go slow, not like you see me
doing because I think it causes it to crack more as it says in the back of the Mod Podge,
not to shack this sealer. Prepare the rest of the colors the same way
and then you can start coloring in your design… and yes you can buy glass paints but I had
the food coloring and Mod Podge already so why not. Using a paint brush color in the whole design. If you want to switch colors, have some water
and a paper towel handy to quickly clean the brush before switching colors. This part is so relaxing and that’s why
I did this project this week. I needed something chill to make because I’ve
got some big ones coming up that y’all been requesting and let’s just say I’m going
to be telling myself that there’s no need to cry LOL! but I’m very excited to get
started and show you all what I have in store. When I got to the eyes I decided to use all
the colors to match what I was planning to do with his feathers. I put red, blue, purple green and yellow. I repeated the pattern until the entire eye
was colored. Make sure to wipe the brush on the paper towel
in between colors. Color the whole thing and set it aside to
dry. Once it’s dry you might see some cracks
in it. I’m thinking this happened because I mixed
the sealer with the food coloring to fast. Either way It still looks good and just adds
to the look! This is just an inexpensive way to get a faux
stained glass look. It’s fun for kids to do or great for small
projects. If you want to make a bigger project they
sell glass paints at any craft store or online. As matter of fact, one of our very own family
members found a store online that sells the gallery glass paints and other craft supplies
at good prices and was kind enough to share it with me. I’ll leave the link in the description box
below in case you’re interested in checking it out. Disclaimer, I myself have never bought anything
from this site and I’m not being sponsored… shop at your own discretion. After it was completely dry, I outlined the
edge of the glass with the puffy paint and let that dry. To hang it, I used a small binder clip and a suction cup with a hook and that’s
it! I think this came out sooo cute and would
be such a fun craft for the kids. You can pick there favorite cartoons or even
animal they like… do the outlining and let it dry then they could color it in themselves! Imagine all the different designs you could
do and how fun when they get to see what they colored get lit up by the sun! I just thought of something else that might
look amazing. You could do this on a shadow box, fill the
shadow box with fairy lights and now you have a faux stained glass piece you can hang on
your walls… you can even use it as a decorative night light for the young ones. As always have fun be creative and make a
mess! Thanks for watching! If you like this video, please don’t forget

  1. I think it's neat and my daughter will have fun making a mess but as long as she's having fun, I'm in! This is cheap and fun for both of us. TFS boo!

  2. Very cool but I have a question what the heck is puffy paint? Never heard of that in my life is there a real name for it thanks in advance

  3. Really cute and a great idea for the kids. I was wondering how u would paint it without the marker smearing. Never thought of puffy paint. Do you have to use that particular mod podge or just your preference.

  4. How fun! This is one I will do this summer when my grandkids come for a weekend…they like to craft,and maybe I'll have them do it for a mothers day gift. Thanks again…

  5. Love it!!!! That would be a great kid project. My grandkids drive me crazy but they might have fun doing something like this. Thanks for the great idea!!! I love it!!!!!

  6. Such a cute project. Your cheery voice has given me a wonderful start to my day. Thank you sweetheart 🌻

  7. Honestly you should do a whole video of you coloring stain glass designs. It's actually really relaxing to watch!! 🙂

  8. Question: Does the food coloring Modpodge color fade over time? I enjoy your videos very much, you’re a good teacher. 😊

  9. Awesome video! Was thinking of making something like this for my sister for her birthday. It's a month from today so I'm looking at the idea and seeing if it's feasible to get done before then. Quick question, how big is the clock face glass you used? I'm looking at some on eBay but the pictures are hard to tell the size and I'm looking for something similar to the size you used. Here's the listing I'm looking at that offers various sizes: https://www.ebay.com/i/171212697623?chn=ps&var=470328036780 Thanks for any advice you can give!

  10. So cute! Mixing colors like this look better than the glaze pens I just experimented with. The glaze colors are too subdued. I want to try this to compare. God bless!
