    Just paint the back of a clear glass splashback with oil based paint, if you are very particular about the colour then use low iron glass as this does not have that green tinge. Any glass shop should be able to supply suitable glass cut to size.

    I've considered painting the back of glass (or Acrylic sheet) to get this effect.

    But wont the paint fade after a while, and then look a bit crapp?
