    Hi folks!

    I’m currently having a bit of a conundrum – we ordered Crystal Gel over a month ago for a fabric “window” treatment. Unfortunately it looks like Rosco won’t be able to fulfill our order in time.

    I am currently sampling PVA as an alternative but would love other options that can be found locally or are in stock – the finished effect is meant to be a relatively transparent “textured glass”.

    I am also going to sample with some Henry’s but my concern is that it will be too opaque.

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Update in case anyone else runs into this issue!

    We are going forward with the treatment using DAP Clear paintable caulking. It behaves very similarly to Crystal Gel when applied to the fabric and is significantly less expensive! Happy painting!

    I’m a bit late to the topic, but I’ve used Artist gloss gel medium to create stained glass windows. It adheres well to plexiglass and you can tint it with food colouring and transparent Artist acrylics.  This picture is in process, so some of the areas are still drying and look milky
