Hi! My name is Davia and I am 11 years old. I have been working with stained glass for around 2 years. This year, I couldn’t do the stained glass camp, so we set up a stained glass area in our garage. I wanted to do this piece because it reminded me of the SCA. This piece reminds me of the SCA because there are usually knights and fighting at SCA events. This piece is still in progress, the pieces are all cut. After I’m finished foiling the pieces of glass, I will solder them together. My parents say that I’m not allowed to use lead the way it would have been done originally.
The first picture (left) is my current progress. The second photo (middle) is the uncut pieces of stained glass that I used for the piece. The third photo (right) I was going for this king of look from this piece of stained glass from around 600 AD.
These are the steps:
- Decide and design the picture
- Pick out your glass
- Score and cut out your glass pieces
- Grind your glass pieces so that they fit together better
- Clean the glass
- Foil the glass
- Solder the glass together to create your final piece
- Stage your glass and enjoy what you’ve made!
