Glass Painting Jewelry Box Kit

Before older children try their hand at stained glass, they may want to start with this painted jewelry box kit. The three-step process begins with choosing one of the kit's design templates (butterflies, hearts, or daisies). The next step is to trace the template onto the glass box using liquid leading--a gray, gooey substance that flows out of a squirt bottle. (Crafters must keep the squeeze pressure even, otherwise the lead lines look wobbly and blotchy.) The final step is to paint in the design using the eight brightly colored paints (paintbrush included). The trick is to get even coverage so it looks like sheets of glass rather than streaks of paint. The hinged box has a mirrored bottom and makes for great jewelry storage.
