If you have been following along with my reverse-painted stenciled glass projects, we have been using one piece of glass to stencil on. Then it occurred to me that we can stencil a double-layer pattern on glass. It is so easy!
Imagine how you can use this double stenciled glass idea in an old cabinet, as a fabulous, layered piece of glass, or set into a serving tray.

2 pieces 16″ x 20″ standard picture frames glass (or tempered glass). I ordered mine online.
1 16″ x 20″ piece of cardboard. I used the piece that came with the glass.

Stencil brushes, paper towels, rags, glass cleaner, painters tape, ruler, pencil. If needed, small nails, hammer and picture hanging wire.
Clean and dry the glass.
Center the stencil on the glass and tape. Use a pencil to color in the little oval at the four corners of the stencil. These will be used as registration marks when you move the stencil left and right.
Dip the stencil brush tips into the Metallic Champagne Gold paint and swirl on the paper towels to remove excess paint. Tap the brush onto the stencil. Complete the pattern. Move the stencil over, using the ovals to place in position. Tape.
Now we are simply going to use the same stencil and the Metallic Vintage Gold paint, in a new position on the second piece of glass. To decide where you want to place the stencil, slide it under the glass and move it around until you like the placement. Tape the stencil at the bottom only. Use a pencil to mark around the piece of glass then remove the glass. Flip back the stencil. Put the second piece of glass in place within the area you marked. Stencil using the same process as in step 2.
Use a wide brush like this Staalmeester, and paint a coat of Metallic Brush Steel on a piece of cardboard. Let dry. I just used this cardboard that came with the glass. But anything with some texture would work just as well.
Drop the layers you created into your old frame or cabinet door and secure. For my heavy old frame I VERY carefully tapped small nails in around the edges. You want to be sure you don’t break the glass. I used heavy duty picture hanging wire and eyes since the glass and frame are extra heavy.
Here you go! The extra piece of glass creates a 3-D effect, making a shadow. You can eliminate the cardboard in the back when using the double glass in a cabinet if you wish. Just imagine how you can use this double stenciled glass idea!
I would love to see what you do!
