How to Make Stained Glass Blocks
Nothing is prettier than the sun streaming through your handmade glass block! It's simple to create a customized block, using your favorite template, that you can fill with fresh flowers all year long. We love these butterfly blocks, but what will you choose to create?
Clean the outside of the glass block with rubbing alcohol. Let dry.
Position & secure template
Position the butterfly template, or template of your choice, inside the block. Use masking tape to hold the template in place.
Outline with liquid leading
Lay block on its side. Outline all of the black lines with liquid leading. Let the leading dry completely.
Fill with paint
Fill divided areas with Gallery Glass paint. Let paint dry completely.
Place aqua pearls
Place aqua pearls into the glass block and fill it about half full with water. Let sit for several hours for pearls to absorb water.
Arrange flowers in block.
