Need Help: Stained Glass Sun-catcher

Post by pand.. » Sat, 16 Mar 1996 04:00:00



Hi,

I would like to make a round stained glass object about 4 inches
across, sort of a sun-catcher design. I know exactly the design that I
need, so I can't just go out and buy it. I have never worked with
stained glass before, but am very handy and work other types of
crafts.

Can someone point me to the "start" box? I don't want to invest in a
lot of expensive equipment to make this one piece I need, although
I've been told you can't make just one. :)

What's my best bet?

Thanks,

Toni

If you truely only want "ONE", go to a stained glass shop, and see if they
will either cut it for you, or let you cut it (in the way of training).
But be forwarned... it IS ***ive.

Sign up for a stained glass class in your area and do your suncatcher
as your first project.  Most class settings will have all the equipment
you will need and you will get some (hopefully) good instruction to
get you started in the craft the right way.  If you don't like it you
can come out of it without too much lost, and at least with the "one"
piece you have in mind.  Glass is a truly wonderful medium and you
may find that you do get ***ed to it!  Good luck and have fun.
