I’m in gearing up for gift giving season so I have more time to create later on, so I made some more little stained glass votive lamps like the one I did here.

These were done the exact same way (engrave “lead” lines onto white acrylic, fill with black metallic embossing paste, paint color with glass paints, make a wooden box with engraved shelf with circular cutouts to hold the battery operated votive light), except I did the box part as a standard finger joint box then covered them with walnut veneer, instead of mitering the corners (too much work!).

Oh, also I made the corner pieces out of black acrylic instead of walnut–it made the gluing easier.

Edit: forgot to mention that I got the patterns for the stained glass from this Dover design book.
