Mazola®
 
 
Ingredients
 
1/4 cup Mazola® Canola Oil
Plain white paper sheets
Black Permanent marker
Coloured Pencil crayons
Paintbrush (for oil)
Paper towels
Old shoe box, a bit larger than your paper size
 
Instructions
 

Draw a colourful picture on the white paper.

If your kids are too young to use a permanent marker you can help with this step; outline the drawing as much as you want, more lines mean it will look more like stained glass!

Place several pieces of paper towel on a cookie sheet or tray large enough to hold the paper.

Using your paintbrush, brush oil all over the drawing until it is completely saturated. Wipe excess oil off with a paper towel.

 

Now it’s time to wait, give it about 24-48 hours until its dry. In the meantime, you can get your light box ready! Cut a window out of the lid of your shoe box slightly smaller than the size of your paper. Why not decorate your shoe box while you wait for your stained-glass art to dry?

 

Once your stained-glass art has dried you can now tape it to the inside of your shoe box lid. Add your battery-operated light inside, turn it on, and close up your box and voila! Your stained-glass light box is ready to be admired!

 

**TIP** You can also hang the artwork right on your windows!
