Stained Glass in the Garden
Vicki Payne, internationally recognized craft and home improvement expert and the host of two national television series, helps crafters bring the irresistible sparkle of stained glass outdoors and into the garden. With its magnificent variety of textures, patterns, and finishes, these projects showcase the versatility of glasswork—and prove how easy it can be to create eye-catching flowerpots, lanterns, stepping stones, tabletops, birdbaths, fountains, and other attractive accessories. Payne outlines all the tools and supplies needed to start out, along with time-honored techniques for making glass, mixed media mosaics, panels, and three dimensional objects using the copper foil method. If you thought working with stained glass would be too difficult and time consuming, this book will make you think again!
