I started teaching myself stained glass in 2014 just as something to keep me busy in rural Ohio, however it has quickly become more of an obsession. I am slowly trying to start my own stained glass business, and while it may be a bumpy ride fraught with learning experiences, I have hope that it will be worth it. Every piece I make, I try to incorporate a new technique, and add ever more detail into my pieces. While I'm not that much of an original artist, I really enjoy the challenge presented by trying to render the digital and cinematic world in stained glass in as exacting detail as I am able.

Stained Glass Golden Zelda Dice Tower
     Okay. So. I finally got around to getting this guy done. This is the same design as the last zelda dice tower, but i wanted to do a throw back to the golden cartridge now that I have figured out a decent method of doing so. The design here is deeply etched as normal, the difference here is that I used Vitrea 160 clear gloss medium and added a copper/gold toned mica powder to it. This was waaaaaaaay easier than the epoxy method I had used on the dice tray, and I can add a lot more mica to it and have it remain stable, though the epoxy method is will still be a tool in my magic box as it has a slightly different effect. I'm extremely happy with the mica, and the way I put everything together smartly enough that i got everything patina'd on the inside. Downside, I think I would like to investigate plating for the solder. I used lead free, which is hard to work with, though I've adapted, and I used copper patina, which is very hard to work with for double the pain, so it may be the fact that it's lead free that the copper it's as shiny and golden as I have gotten it before on actual lead, or maybe I just fucked that up, I dunno.

Stained Glass Horde Ornament
 After a lot of prodding, I am on the path of making some horde stuff based on the Bastion of Resolve. I have started with pins, and am slowly adding details as I scale it up. The suncatcher will be accurate with full details. It was fun carving the one claw on this guy though. I did my best to angle out the pieces crossing the back to minimize the shadow cast and I think it worked out pretty well.

Stained Glass Pins - Take 2
Great thing about doing your patterns in Vector? They can be instantly resized to any scale. So for my second stab at pins that's what I did, took patterns I already had done and resized. These are all 1-2" at their largest dimension. They didn't all make it, but this was the best of this crop. I still need to do some work on the backside shading in pins, something darker, but still not black. You may have to zoom in to see all the fine details but the shading is all done here just like in the ornaments. Overall I'm really happy with how these are turning out and I hope to offer many of these of my shop this summer and fall.

Input and suggestions are always most welcome.

Stained Glass Pins - GlassManCometh
   I got tired with how ridiculously huge ornaments are and decided to go with something a little more reasonable, stained glass pins! I decided to start this new journey by rendering the emotes from a fellow glass artist's stream as a surprise gift, www.twitch.com/GlassManCometh aka www.instagram.com/tobsterglass . Let's just say that this was a learning experience that took a couple weeks to figure out. I used aluminum foil tape (HVAC tape) on the backside to reflect light back out so you can see the color of the glass and such, rather than just whatever it is pinned to, and had to put in a fresh 60 degree CB09 blade in my cameo to get the tiny details to cut out of the vinyl resist. The rest is the usual method I have been using lately of sandblasting out details and filling with with Vitrea 160, or treating with rub n buff and sealing with a clear spray. The bandanna was the biggest point of consternation for me and I ended up making an ornament sized piece as a way to figure it out. The pins here have that largest dimension at either 1 or 2", the ornament I believe was 4" wide. 

Be sure to check out www.twitch.com/GlassManCometh glass blowing stream, see his actual emotes in action, see how close I came, and hang out in the Lagoon with the rest of us Goons.

Stained Glass Pixel Art Cat
  I was looking around at pixel art patterns and came across this pattern and just had to make myself one. It came out alright I think, I need to make a base still. roughly 4" big, it's completed with sandblasting on the front and the back sides using rub n buff for shading and highlight effects, and vitrea 160 for the black.

Thank you for the Llama! :D

I am so intrigued on how you make such beautiful pieces with stained glass.
If you don't mind me asking, what is your process on doing these? I am really curious :)

Thank you. Process? hmm, something in particular, or stained glass in general?

How do you shape your stained glass? Specially with the pixelated pieces you've done.

Just curious ^u^

The glass outline is shaped with my Taurus 3 ring saw. Then one layer of etching on the front, nice and deep, where I fill the etch with Vitrea 160, which is a glass paint that I bake on. A second layer of etching on the front for the highlights with a bit of silver rub n buff, then a layer on the backside with a thicker coating of the same  for the shadows in the etching there. then just the typical soldering work and such for any stained glass.
