Tinted glass.........

Can any of you experts out there help me?

I'm making up a resin kit at the moment - a Team Slot Lancia Delta S4, but with a fair few changes to make it look more like the original. I want to put in a tinted (fairly dark) rear window (this was solid resin on the original kit) but I'm not sure where to source some tinted plastic to make this from? Anyone spotted suitable packaging recently??

My other option is to somehow paint/tint some clear plastic but I'm not sure how easy this would be....or how effective it would look.

Any advice or pointers much appreciated!

You can tint clear plastic with Johnsons Klear, just put a couple of drops of acrylic colour of choice, (Klear is an acrylic so it mixes perfectly with acrylic paint), into some Klear.
You don't need much colour just a couple of drops.
Put it in a small shallow dish and dip the clear part and then lay it on to a piece of kitchen towel to dry.
If you make a mistake dip the part back into some Klear for a while and it will wash off so you can start again,.
