On Glass Is A Very Interest
"Kvery houso containing somo win-
dow that would bo prettier tf covered
by an all-over decorative dodga. In
tho kitchen, for Instance, Uio lower
half of tho window la better protected
from the neighbors' eyes y a celorod
pattern on glass than by a sash cur
tain. A window that gives on a area
way offers a discouraging oalteok;
carer It over with a sunshiny, yetlow
design. Tho glass panel at eltfaer sldo
of tho front door Is a fair Odd for dec
oration; and a nursery window can
be tnado to delight a chiidish heart
'by reproducing tho animals of (ho Jun
Klo, or tho children of any land.
Tho materials for stcacillng are
of tho sltnplost: Water colors, a aton---ell
brush, a stencil plate, aayn the
Woman's Homo Companion.
Tho water colors may bo of two
sorts: tho dry cakes of paint that
come In bozos of water colors, or tho
"moist" variety, put up In tubes.
In decorating window pane it Is ad
tVisablo to attach the stoncM to tho
glass. This Is done by rujtblug oao
side of tho stencil with ordinary yel
low kitchen soap. A very tfala coat
lag of soap Is all that Is required for
a thin paper stencil; a prepared atea
ell, as It Is heavier and stiffer, will
,,call for a slightly thicker coating.
iNew apply ihe stencil td (fee. window
jmi. Whlto operating the brush you
'will probably wish to hold aoaae part
'vafJtae stonclt firmly la ataoe wth
jur left band, but the application of
soap "prevents slipping.
hi stenciling such materials as lln
om or burlap, you deal with an absorb
ent surfaco, but glims rejects aiots-
turo, so that It Is Important, and for
tunately easy, to have your color of
iuijt tho right consistency. It It runs,
It blurs outlines: If It U not sufllcleut-
ly moist, It dries so quickly that tho
r-olor cannot bo smoothly sprond,
There are two ways of uhim; bard
), Lumpen tlio surfaco of tho iiilto
vith n few drops of water, nllowlug
the niolsturo to sink In, and ohtulnlui;
ly ibis means a Hurfaco coat of a con
nlstcnuy sliullnr to that of a salvo. iThe
color should milium to your Alitor If
you touch It llKhlly, hut it slioulil not
"i, Ueinovo the culm of color from
tho box. brush one Hlilo with water,
nnd rub tho damp surfaco on a white
illnnor plato, which will hoivu im as
'nrtlotto, until tho paint to bo used
Jsithluk enough to cllni; to tlio bristles
l u stencil brush, but not iiufllulcntly
wot to run. This nmtlioit is nomsmry
when you wish to mU your colors;
to - blue, for Instance, blue and
nllow to inulio gioun, i oil and lil.o for
tn iis!:ik moist water loloni, press a
small ipiantlty of the paint from (ho
itulw on tho dinner plate. Take up
"with yoiir'stunult linihh a little of tho
-olor nnd, as It l loo wet to use Im
mediately, test It on tho pluto until it
(reaches n Horvlcmiblo coiislsleucy. Hy
rapplylng- a drop of water from time to
tlsae the proiwr thlcluicsit ran easily
Tlio color may now bit applied. Do
caiofol that 'the stencil briibh Is per
ffftly dry; 'press It llnhtly Inio tho
cblor. niolstenoil on tho haul rake or

"Nutu rally, water color alone will not

yoa have colored, your dcflltfn and
(before you remove tho stuicll, to cov-
