Step 2.

Decide on a design. You may want to first draw the pattern on paper for reference. Use glitter glue to draw a design on your plate. Tip: start in the middle to make sure your design is centered.

Step 3.

Try to keep your grip on the bottle consistent as you continue to draw your design, working from the inside to the outside. Tip: A simple design works best. Make your design more interesting by breaking up large areas with the glue, as we did in our flower design. For best results, let the glue dry overnight.

Step 4.

Apply a generous amount of Sun Catcher Paint in each section of your outlined design. Even if it looks uneven, the paint will flatten and smooth out as it dries. Once dry, display your stained glass plate near a window to let the sun shine through!
