Window Art

insert image in small size linked to itself by Klutz
"When we first came across these amazing window colors, we were impressed with how gorgeous the finished products looked. But we couldn’t help wondering whether real kids could get such fantastic results. So we did what we always do: we rounded up some real kids and let them try it out."

The Home Is Fun real life kids love Window Art especially when they use their own drawings to trace onto a piece of plexiglass. (It keeps.) It's like a modern stained glass with brilliant colors. We've seen princesses, knights in shining armor, manger scenes, 1st grade drawings (my favorite), and stellar Christmas tree decorations. Alternatively, use Klutz' extensive collection of amusing patterns. Either way, it's a sure win.

This classic edition of Window Art features tried-and-true, ready-to-trace designs, and six bottles of squirt-on, peel-off colors.

Porecelaine Markers

insert image in small size linked to itself<img src= Porcelaine Pens by Pebeo
These pens put professional enamels into the hands of everyone with 46 different intermixable colors. Just paint on glass or porcelaine and bake in your oven for 20 minutes. As you can see the colors are deep brilliant and have a superb enamelled look after baking.

We used the metallic "cloisonné" products which are found in France.  The U.S. markers have less texture but brighter colors.  IF you have a steady hand and IF you want to go the 10 extra miles

- write the name with a thick marker
- trace the outline with a thin black marker
