Then I discovered a product called Crystal Craze. It was a thin paint for glass that crystallized as it dried. I removed one panel at a time and used liquid lead to outline a pattern on each one. The design was then filled in with various colors of Crystal Craze. It takes a fair amount of pressure to squeeze liquid lead from a tube so it is not something you work at for long periods of time. The glass also has to be squeaky clean or the lead will not form a bond and the paint will seep under the lead to the ajoining section. What I'm pointing out here is that this took some time to complete.
