Stained Glass Window

Washable Stained Glass Window

A window
Oily soap paint , see recipe
Four finger paint, see recipe
Squeeze bottle
Flour Finger Paint recipe:

1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon of liquid detergent
Mixing bowl
Black powdered tempera

Combine the flour, liquid detergent, and water in a mixing bowl. Stir until they form a smooth paste about the consistency of mayonnaise. If it is too thick and heavy, it will slide off of your painting surface.

Blend in enough of the black powdered tempera paint to get the color you desire. A small amount will create a silver look, or add more to get solid black. Put it in the squeeze bottle and seal until you are ready to use it.

Oily Soap Paint recipe:

1 tablespoon powdered tempera paint, various colors
1 tablespoon liquid dishwashing soap, per color

Blend together the powdered tempera paint and liquid dishwashing soap until smooth. Repeat for each chosen color.

You can blend the colors of the soap paints to create new colors or shades as well. Cover until you are ready to use.

Directions for your washable Stained Glass Window:

First you will want to decide how you want your window to look. Do this with paper and pencil, creating the design you want to paint on the window. The "leading" will be the outline of the window and any inner outlines of the "colored glass". Keep it simple.

Shake down any bubbles in the "lead" paint squeeze bottle. Using your design on paper as a model, squeeze the "lead" outline onto your window surface. Allow to dry, which may take several hours.

Once the outline is completely dry, use your Oily Soap Paints and a paintbrush to color the areas inside your outline. Allow to dry completely.


  • When you are ready to remove the design, you just wash it off with soap and water.
  • If streaking occurs after washing, use a solution of vinegar and water to make it sparkling clean.
  • The powdered tempera may stain porous materials such as clothing and skin.
