Alan Gear from Rainbow Glass shows how to incorporate fabric and self-adhesive film to create quilt-like designs suitable for framing.

Materials Needed:

  • water
  • small container with top
  • white and brightly colored water-based glass paint
  • light cotton fabric
  • self-adhesive film
  • parchment paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • black marker
  • picture frame with glass
  • gold braiding
  • fabric glue

Step 1

Combine equal parts white glass paint and water in a small container with a top. Shake well and allow to settle for about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Cut a light cotton fabric to the same size as a piece of self-adhesive film. Brush the solution liberally onto the dry side of the film and lay your fabric on top. Brush more solution over the fabric to adhere the fabric to the film.

Step 3

Brush vibrant colors of water-based glass paints onto the fabric, using random motions and mixing the colors. Make several colors of fabric on several panels of adhesive film.
