Stained Glass Software

Threaded View
I have got several transom-shaped windows in my house.  Stained glass
windows to fit inside of them will be my first foray into stained
glass.

I am not much of an artist, but from all the pattern books I've found
available, that shouldn't prove to be much problem.  Choosing the
proper glass to use in the designs might be hit or miss for me, but I
hope that I develop an eye for that over time.

My question is if there is software that can effectively manipulate
patterns.  I can see myself putting many hours into manipulating an
existing pattern to fit one of my window openings when good software
would allow me to do it in minutes.

Thank you, Michael

   Have you considered getting this done by your local SG pro? They do all
the design work, and the craftsmanship will be top notch, something that at
best will take you years to achieve. Something to consider....

Thank you for the suggestion, but I am really looking forward to the
pleasure and satisfaction of doing them myself.  The transom-shaped
windows are just a good entry point for me.  I don't plan on stopping
there.  I am not looking to go professional, but I would like to fill
the house up and perhaps do a few things for the folks at work.

Have you ever made "anything" in stained glass?   It's great to have some
goals,  but don't you think you ought to take a few classes and get some
fundamental skills before you take off "filling the house up"?  Tisn't as
easy as it looks.

Yes.  A long time ago I made several windows, both lead came and tape,
and a couple geometric lamps.  But it's been so long, I pretty much
consider myself to be starting up all over again.  I didn't have much
trouble with the actual physical skills.  My biggest problem is that
artistically I'm a pig.  Since there are many ready-made patterns
available, I should OK there.  To choose glass I'll pick some and then
ask for opinions from my family and others.

The work I do will never match professional quality, but that won't
keep me from being proud of it.  I'm on vacation this month, but I
will post pictures of what I do as soon as I can.

Even for you, that's a preposterous statement.

Those two fat slug sons of yours are proof enough, you need not look outside
you own little world.  If I had a dog that was as ugly as your kids,  I'd
shave his ass and make him walk backwards.

That's the best you can come up with?   You are as lame as your slug troll
sockpuppet Jason.  Why don't you give it up, peterbreath?






Re: Stained Glass Software
I downloaded the Glass Eye software.  I'm embarrassed to say that I'm
having something of a struggle with it, but it looks like really good
stuff.  There are a bunch of patterns included in it.
