We made tissue paper stained glass the other day, before our beach trip, mostly because I had a big batch of liquid starch that we needed to use (from when we made salt paint). The idea is from MaryAnn Kohl's Scribble Art. Basically I went through the book looking for any activities that used liquid starch. I came up with quite a list! Who knew you could do so much with the stuff!
First Maia tore up some colored tissue paper into small pieces. Then she helped tape down a sheet of waxed paper to use as the base for the stained glass. She brushed the liquid starch all over the waxed paper, set a piece of tissue paper in the liquid starch, then brushed more liquid starch over the piece.
She kept doing this until her waxed paper was covered with the colored tissue paper scraps.
After the "stained glass" dried, we hung it in the window to let the sun shine through.
Beautiful! This might be my favorite stained glass project yet!
