Creative Stained Glass: Modern Designs & Simple Techniques
From in-a-weekend pieces to intricate designs that take more time, these 27 stained-glass projects shine with light, color, and texture, thanks to the great new glasses on the market today. More than 70 color photos present the techniques, all worked with easy-to-acquire, modern, and efficient tools. Try two methods of cutting, with or without making a pattern. Use overlays, plating, and patinas to color the finish, creatively combine different techniques, and see how to work with brass and copper came. Beginners can start on small glass panels and build the skills to make a flat fan lamp, a mirror suitable for the wall or in a window, and more.
