Materials
- Paned window
- Craft adhesive
- Casting resin and hardener
- Two disposable plastic bowls
- Wooden craft stick
- Colored glass pieces
Instructions
1. Remove the glass from the window. Place a line of craft adhesive all the way around the inner edge of the window frame and replace the glass. Press it down firmly to ensure it stays in place.
2. Combine the casting resin and the hardener according to the manufacturer's instructions in a disposable plastic bowl. Stir until well-combined.
3. Pour some of the casting resin into the first window pane. Use the wooden craft stick to spread it, ensuring it covers the entire pane.
4. Cover the resin with the colored glass pieces, ensuring there are as few holes as possible.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the remaining panes.
