When I was little, we used to make paper lanterns in school. I would do very elaborate cut out patterns and was pretty pleased with that. Later I tried my hand with real glass and totally fell in love with the art of Tiffany glass. Some motives however are to complex to make out of glass, so I also experimented with plastic window paint for children. That is pretty fun as well, and it lasts longer then I thought it would. My little cabinet with flying badgers is at least 10 years old.
