Boardman library hosted a faux stained glass art making event on May 23.

Librarian Cindy Christiani organized the event.

“It’s a fun and easy craft that can be used to decorate, and it’s actually pretty easy to do,” Christiani said.

The library provided paint, plastic plates and smocks to community members gathered.

“I tested all of the paint and added a couple of designs for them to try out,” Christiani said.

During the event, community members picked a design they liked, which were outlines in advance by Christiani.

They had three to choose from, including a desert scene, a rose and animals. Community members then painted their plate to customize it, from a variety of transparent paint.

“When you put the finished piece in the window the light coming through has the same effect as stained glass,” Christiani said.
