Although spring IS on its way, these last weeks of winter just seem endless.
By this time, pretty much everyone is getting cabin fever, and this year has been particularly rough for many of us.
If you’re looking for a fun craft to brighten your home and a project to keep the kids busy during the snowy, blustery days of March, a stained glass art kit could be just the thing!
Stained Glass Painting Is Fun For Everyone
These sets are a great diversion for everyone who can hold a paintbrush. You don’t have to be an artist to create charming accessories with a stained glass look.
You can order kits that are more adult in nature, or there are kits made just for kids. There are paints and markers that are permanent when applied to many surfaces such as plastic and acetate, while other paints can be made permanent by using your home oven to bake and set the paints.
You can get individual paints and paint sets to use on your choice of glassware, as well as complete kits that include everything you need to create colorful and cute decorative pieces.
Stained Glass Kits For Kids
These entertaining painting kits are specially made just for kids. Some of these kits are listed as appropriate for children as young as three years of age, while the recommended minimum age for other kits is six years. Check recommendations before purchasing for a young child, and of course, adult supervision is a good idea for these projects.
There are charming suncatcher kits that children can paint and hang in windows, and these make great gifts for aunts, uncles and grandparents.
There are also paint kits that use your windows as the artist’s painting surface. Haven’t you always wanted a Tiffany-style stained glass front window created by a budding six-year-old Picasso?
There are both paints and markers, so your child can draw or paint – or both!
Stained Glass Kits For Tweens And Adults
There are also loads of paint sets and kits for older kids as well as adults. Here you’ll find paints that can be used on glassware, so you can permanently personalize your favorite wine goblets or add temporary color and design to a mirror, window pane or any glass object.
Recently, quite a few manufacturers have jumped on the ceramic and glass painting craze, so you’ll have far more choices, colors and methods just a few years ago. If you haven’t looked into this satisfying and entertaining craft in a while, you should check it out.
