Faux Stained Glass

As I have mentioned in previous posts,  I am working with our local community theatre, CAST.  I am playing a part but in community theatre we do many things. We spent part of one Saturday painting sets.  During the process it was discussed that the front door needs a window of some kind.  Since yours truly has previously made a faux stained glass piece for a friend, I volunteered to do one for this.  Of course, we are not cutting into the door.  So there will be two pieces that are mirror images (or close) so that it can show on both sides of the door.
I am awaiting design approval from the director at this point. But in the meanwhile, it was a good idea to revisit my method.  So, this sample serves as a check both for method and color.
In the actual piece there will be black "leading" lines between the colors. The colors will not run together like they do on this sample.  I did this really fast and didn't let it dry between colors.
The design that I have submitted is a rough computer drawn image.  I will have to draw it full-size for making the template I will need to paint it.  Here is the rough draft design I have submitted.
The colors are not exact, but they give a rough idea of what we may do. The center will be left semi-transparent so that the ladies can get an idea of who is outside the door as that is part of the plot.

I am excited to be doing this for our production of Arsenic and Old Lace.

I agree with Debbie - your design for the window is great - but even better than that is the fact that your name is listed!! Good for you!! - ;))
