Stained glass

I have an outside security lantern, see below. The four glass panels are leaded, with a diamond shape in the middle of each panel. I would like to stain/paint each diamond allowing the light to shine through. Is this possible, and if so, is there a special type of paint, and do I paint the outside, inside or both sides. I am new to this site, and I would appreciate any advice.

Hi, any glass paint should be suitable and it is entirely up to you whether you paint the inside or outside, as the paint id waterproof once dry.  Try Vitrail glass paint.
