Hi: I posted this question on the crafts forum, but then realized this is the place to post my question. I am painting the back outside side of a doll house. I need someone to tell me what color to paint the window glass?? My brain will not even come up with an idea. Help please!

RE: How to paint dollhouse windows?

I assume you mean you're going to paint it to look like glass? I use Duncan paints and the colour I use for faking windows is Wedgewood Blue (colour number OS458). This is a slightly grayish light blue colour (if you do an Internet search for "Duncan paints" you will find a colour chart and then you can pick or blend a suitable colour). I then put a suggestion of reflected light in a corner of the window with a lighter colour.
If you want to paint curtains and stuff in the windowsill, do that first and then wash the window colour over it.
