Here is how I solved this issue.

I used the edge of a clean tooth pick and applied a thin layer of glue to the rear of the window frame and the wall section. I then smoothed the glue with my finger and let dry.



Here is a look at the frames in place.

Knowing the glue would dry clear, I carefully painted the rear of the frames, over the glue, with Floquil Weathered Black. Any dark color will do. I was very careful not to get any black on the window mullions. The mullions will be stained with a thin wash of white.

The rest of the wall will also be painted black.




When the wall was held up to the LED work lights, no light shinned through.

Outstanding Tom. I actually liked the look of the wood covering the window like it's broken.

Great solution to the light leak problem.   8)  I'll have to keep that in mind if this one ends up in my stash.   ;)

Steven,

Thank you, much appreciated. I try to explain all I do in a build and I'm glad you are learning from the build.

The church entrance has a solid double door, no windows.



I followed the same procedure as the church windows for installing the doors. I decided to glue a small scrap piece of wood to the rear/interior wall around the door opening.

I then glued the doors on flush to the scrap piece.



I then added the door frame.

The walls have the laser burn on the inside of the windows. This doesn't take staining to well so I used  full Strength Floquil Reefer White to lightly coat the area.



Using a light coat of paint allowed me to keep the window paint looking faded.



More in a few.

I then used a "white wash" of Floquil Reefer White to cover the walls. I thinned the white to 40 parts white and 60 parts/% thinner. Once the first coat was applied and dry (not cured), a second (final) coat was applied and allowed to dry and cure.

The finished walls aren't as white as they appear in the photo.





Adding the stained glass tomorrow.
