But not today! Having LUNCH with an old window is on today’s old sign agenda.
I had these two old window frames in my stash, waiting to be loved in some exciting, new way.
And I’m glad I held off. I think LUNCH suits either of these windows, in theme and design!
Now, stenciling on glass is way different than on a wood surface. So you’ll want to practice on something that doesn’t matter. Here are my suggestions:
How to stencil on CLEAR GLASS
1. Clean surface well, and scrape off any reside to be certain.
2. Position stencil backwards, on the back of your glass, tape into place, then apply paint with a small dense foam roller.
I found the pouncing of a stencil brush removed most of the paint. Swirling made the paint too thin. See what works best for you on a small sample.
3. Allow paint to dry, before adding another layer if desired.
4. For permanent stenciling on glass, look into the specialty acrylic craft paints meant for glass, or add a glass medium to your paint.
I just used regular acrylic craft paint, because I intend to scrape the paint off when I wish to use the window for something else.
You can see this cupboard transformation HERE.
I really like the effect on glass! The letters aren’t filled in completely, leaving kind of a peppery impression.
And the bonus… if you mess up a little, it looks like it should be like that.
Gotta love rustic decor!
