LINE ART - Stained Glass



Making stained glass artwork

An initial idea can be turned into a line drawing, which is used
as a pattern.
To make a dress a pattern is used  
example . A full size pattern
is also used to make a stained glass object as it shows the size
and the shape of each piece of glass (or other material).

Stained glass patterns are essentially line drawings

This is a pattern drawn by an artist and alongside is
the completed stained glass window























The black lines have a unifying effect, enhance the colours and,
as shown below, prevent colours clashing. Notice in the image
on the right that the colours appear significantly brighter, more
vibrant and pure.
