How2 Tuesday: Junck Suncatchers 101

"Stained Glass" Suncatchers by Junck
.
Many thanks to Junck for sharing this very clever idea!
.

You know those clear discs you get when you buy a tower of CDs/DVDs? Well, if you drill a small hole near the top and then paint on them using Gallery Glass paint
you'll have some pretty fine
looking suncatchers!
.
The one's pictured above are the first three I
made
... kinda test samples...
I think they'll get better as I
go along.
.
Since the discs are clear, you can lay them on top of any
image you'd
like to use and easily "trace" over the image with the "lead" paint. If you haven't worked with Gallery Glass paint yet, I highly recommend it! It's very easy
to use and the effect is quite realistic.
I've used
it on old wooden window frames to
create some lovely "stained glass"
windows!
