I recently made a church type building for scenery. Its already all painted and the roof is all set. I have 5 different windows that I plan to put stained glass in. I was wondering if anyone knew the best method for making this stained glass for a warhammer scale, or if you have any other ideas just let me know.
The best luck I ever had at making stained glass windows that are both cheap and attractive is using regular computer paper. Draw your patterns and designs heavily with crayons or colored pencils (I prefer crayon) and then take a cotton ball with a bit of vegetable oil on it and wipe down one side of it. When the first side dries, do it again to the other side. When completely dry it gives the paper a sort of translucent effect, which especially looks good if there is a light source behind the window.
Find/make the design you want and print it out on computer transparency.
Or maybe felt tip pens and clear plastic?
I have a bag of flat acrylic beads, and intend to, when retired maybe, clip them up and stick them together in a stained glass window.
not tried it though, just musing.

How Sho makes Stained Glass:
1. get protective sheet acrlic from an office supply store. (you know those plastic bound, spiral notebookes that have the flat black teeth that round and make the spiral rings? they have a cover sheet. these: http://officemax.com/catalog/images/...120962i_01.jpg (Hotlinked)
well they sell the coversheets here:
GBC Duro Premium Rigid Cover, Clear
These are not only transparent, but smoky and diffused, plus they are semi rigid (being plastic)
2.I cut to shape.
3. draw with pencil on window shape of image
4. use a puffy glue, pva glue, or rubber infused superglue, go over outlines of pencil
5. wwait to dry
6. use inks or washes and fill in windows
7. go over glue or pva with black paint.
