newbie- stained glass for window arches

16 years ago

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I've never done stained glass or mosaics before, but I would sure love to try! Can anyone tell me if there is a way to create a stained glass, or stained glass effect for some window arches without removing and reinstalling the windows? The windows in my southern exposure family room have 3 half-circle arches above them. Could I apply some color and leading strips directly to the existing glass while working vertically? Or, could I have a piece of glass cut to fit, turn it into a do-it-yourself kind of stained glass, and then mount it in front of the existing window glass?

I hope that these are not just ridiculous questions! My knowledge of the art is very minimal, and I sincerely don't mean to insult any real artists out there with my amateur ideas! Any thoughts?
