Hmmm, I like that Idea, it has a physical aspect to it. I was looking at werewegians pics where he throws the camera about to create a great effect - need to get some catching practice first !

Right lets define what wer'e talking about...
You have 'Stained glass' (Glass with a coulreant added during the creating process (Cobalt for blue I think) to create a coloured section of glass Each section is joined to it's partners with lead) As in this example from Scotland Street school
Image

'Painted glass' (PlaIn Glass that is subsequently painted so as to give a colourfull effect) Such as this example from the City Chambers
Image

With painted glass, various colours can be applied to the same piece of glass. So that to create a multicoloured effect you don't need a heavy leadded wondow.

The final type of "stained" Glass is 'Grissail Glass' This is a window of plain or monochrome glass aranged in to a geometric patern so as to make a window look interesting (the glass is held inplace by lead and the pieces can be any shape but a repeating rectangular patern eg 3*3 or 2*2 of plain glass doesn't count) As in this example also from the City Chambers
Image
