Project Instructions

Step 1 Remove glass from frames. Clean with soap and water then dry.

Step 2 Place Leading Blank over lined paper. Applying directly from bottle, trace lines with Liquid Leading™ to create 16-20 lead lines. Place a glass piece over butterfly pattern and trace design. Set aside to dry overnight.

Step 3 Using flat brush, base coat frame Steel Gray and let dry.

Step 4 Apply coat of crackle medium to frame and let dry.

Step 5 Apply topcoat or Wicker White to frame to create crackle effect.

Step 6 Gently peel lead lines from Leading Blank and place on glass piece in grid pattern, trimming ends with scissors as needed. Repeat on remaining glass piece.

Step 7 Paint centers of grid pattern and butterfly design with Window Color™, filling one area at a time then combing back and forth with toothpick to smooth paint. Let dry until colors are translucent.

Step 8 Carefully place glass pieces into frame to complete project.


For finer lead lines, wrap clear tape around tip of leading bottle at a slight angle.
