Stained Glass Lesson Plan
This project can be done with any glass frame or even a plastic document frame. The tin foil is slightly crumpled and wrapped around the backing. In this case, it would be the black cardboard that you see in the picture. The students design the image first on a white sheet of paper and then place the glass on top of their drawing. They trace the drawing onto the glass with a sharpie. Then I have the students turn the glass over and color the other side with prismacolor markers. The markers must be permanent. The students don't have to turn the glass over, but it helps not to smear the lines. I've also seen this project work beautifully with fall leaves.
