Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Remove label and clean glass.
  • 2
    Print design from template; make sure that printer is set so there is no scaling of the artwork; otherwise it won’t print to the proper size. Cut out and insert in block.
  • 3
    Trace lines of design onto block using lead medium. Tip: Turn bottle over and give one good downward shake (to push out any excess air bubbles). Practice the flow of the leading on some scrap paper. Holding the bottle with 2 hands above the project will result in a steadier hand and a more even line of leading and avoids air bubbles! Allow to dry per package instructions.
  • 4
    Create a border around edge of block if desired.
  • 5
    Fill in designs with colors as shown in photo. Note: Be sure to apply color to the depth of the leading and that the color fills in the corners of the design. If the Window Color is applied too thinly, lighter patches of color will appear as it dries. Allow to dry.
  • 6
    Insert lights.
  • 7
    Tie bow with Red burlap ribbon. Glue to top of block.
  • 8
    Option: Another way to create the artwork on the Glass Blocks is the modular technique where the design is leaded onto a Plaid® Gallery Glass® Leading Blank 8 inch x 12 inch 104274313. Just place the design beneath the Leading Blank and follow the directions above. When dry, carefully peel off and place on glass.
