Did you know that you can use clear glue to replicate the look of stained glass? It’s true! I’ve teamed up with my friends at Aleene’s today to show you how you can create beautiful stained glass-like colors with just a little bit of paint and Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue. I painted these colors on plexiglass flowers and then coated them with Aleene’s Matte Acrylic Sealer for an extra layer of protection, too.

How To

Step 1) Mix about a tablespoon of Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue with a VERY small drop of paint in your desired color. Keep mixing until the glue takes on the color of the paint. Then, paint your plexiglass flower and allow it to dry completely.

Step 3) Spray your painted plexiglass flower with Aleene’s Acrylic Matte Sealer to give it a smooth matte finish and to help keep the paint from wearing. A few sprays go a long way!
