Adventures in Dangerous Art
I'm learning the art (or is it a craft?) of stained glass. At this weblog, I record progress, note useful links, and document flesh wounds.


The Art League
Where I took a lead class and a 3D construction class.

Weisser Glass Studio
Where I buy supplies, and where I took a foil class.

Virginia Stained Glass Co.
Where I buy supplies if I happen to be in Springfield and if they happen to have what I want.

Great prices on supplies, a lively and helpful Glass Chat message board, and excellent Technical Tips on stained glass tools and techniques.

Glass Galleries Links List
A list of Glass Chat users who've uploaded photos of their work.

The StoreFinder: Stained Glass Store Front
Lots of articles. Tutorials
Even more articles. Particularly recommended: "Anatomy of a design" and "Wood frames."

It's a glass cutter.
October 20, 2002: Better Living through Chemistry
Apparently there are specialized chemicals produced to solve the specific problems I mentioned with grinding glass pieces that have paper templates glued to them, and also with the grinding process washing away marks on glass or templates.

There's something called Mark Stay that's said to do just what its name says. And Warner-Crivellaro sells a spray adhesive that, according to their print catalog, is water-resistant.

None of this will be a help to me in my current project, since all the pieces are glued and marked etc., but these things are worth a try, maybe.
