With 1,000 great motifs that range from animals to Victorian flowers, this jam-packed collection is the one volume that glass painters must have!  It contains a wealth of inspiration for any crafter in need of an idea to launch a fabulous project. Each motif has been carefully selected by expert glass painters and translated into a user-friendly outline drawing that can simply be traced off and outlined onto glass or film.  Select from birds, insects, nursery toys and themes, alphabets, holiday ideas, celestial images (such as rainbows and stars), knotwork, the seashore, and more. Plus, there are lots of borders, banners, and frames to choose from. An introductory section explains all the basics, and a technique chapter offers handy hints for newcomers.
