Stained glass

Cover chandelier lanterns with tissue paper to create a soft glow.

• Ruler
• Pencil
• Scissors
• Tissue paper
• Small foam brush
• Yasutomo Nori or similar paste
• Glass lanterns or jars

Step-by-step guide
 1. Measure and cut tissue paper into desired shapes and sizes (we used long strips for easy application).
 2. Dip foam brush into paste. Holding a piece of tissue paper against the outsideof the lantern, paint an even coat of paste onto tissue paper and adhere to glass.
 3. Repeat until lantern is covered. Let dry overnight, then hang. Tip: Keep lanterns away from moisture.
