For Rainbow - my windows

Rainbow wanted to see my windows so I thought I'd share

I love the little butterfly gals too. They are sweet!
Chico - it's a "stained glass" that clings to windows, mirrors, etc. They are neat. Just don't put them on fridges. They stain. I found that out the hard way after I made a few for my fridge.
Mine are on the window the kitties sit in most. Funny, I had a hummer on my living room window. Timmy went right for it and ripped it down. The ones you gave me growler, no one has touched.

WOW....I love them.

The big butterflies are my favourites and the dragonflies and the big sun and of course the hummingbirds. I love dolphins and fishies too especially for the bathroom.

Awesome work ......your windows look great.

I don't see any hummingbirds on your windows? Did one of the pics not download for me?

I love my hummingbirds, growler! A little bit of springtime all year round!

I agree with Frenchy--might be a nice side-business for ya!

It is a special type of glass paint and "liquid leading" that doesn't contain any lead. The lead you paint onto a sheet of glass then allowed to dry, then you paint the colours, allow to dry then peel & stick onto any window/mirror and they can be removed & restuck numerous times

There are 8 pics in the first 3 posts so you saw them all, I don't actually have a hummingbird on any of my windows right now

Several years ago I used to make them for a local BC company & they were sold in various stores/craft shows across the province. The business was sold & I wasn't contacted by the new owner to paint for them dunno whether it's still around.

These are 2 others I have painted waiting for homes that are not on my windows (just propped up against the window so you can see the colours):

You place a picture tracer under the sheet of glass to trace the outline with the leading ontop & the painting ontop is done from a paint tube so that part is free hand

Growler,yes,that's what I used,I made sort of an Eagle()freehand and made different color squares around the window,I loved working with that stuff.
That was several years ago and it's now gone,but for a while it was like an addiction,I used it on clear vases,mirrors almost anything it would adhere too
I was looking for a pic of my door-window can't find it...I was surely not as good at it as you though.
