‘Stained Glass’ Birds & Animals


In this video we explore the style of stained glass in an animal cut out. To begin we use food dye to colour a piece of tracing paper.

We then draw our design on a black piece of paper ensuring we use thick lines and simple shapes. We then use a cutting knife to cut out sections leave a bold black line which will outline our details.

Using scissors, we cut around our animal shape leaving a bold lines. We then cut our dried coloured tracing paper into small squares and triangles. Glue is then used to paste over the coloured paper and hen stuck on the back of our black outlined paper animals.
