Product Description

Creative Designs at a Value
The air force logo is the official symbol of the United States Air Force and is a widely recognized for bravery and duty. Use it as a centerpiece for a panel, window or door or let it stand on its own as a large suncatcher. Give as a retirement gift, a special present, or keep for yourself as home art. Bevel cluster measures 9-1/2" x 9" when assembled. 15 pieces.

Delphi Tip: Always lay out bevel clusters on pattern before cutting glass to adjust for small differences. Expect your bevel cluster to "grow" approximately 3/16" overall, the amount is determined by assembly method.

Panel by artist Jessie Gaut.

Military projects created by Delphi artists.

  •   Bevels not "perfect"
By on
Pros : End product beautiful, but not as perfect as desired.
Cons : Unable to use lead came on bevels as it would distort the shape. Project required lead came for stability as panel is fitted into a frame. One of the star points had a reverse angle on one end, therefore, did not butt up against the adjoining piece, leaving a gap.
Other Thoughts : Required mixed copper foil technique for bevels, and lead came for remainder of project. In spite of experience, it was difficult to create a closely fitting project, leaving some seams wider than others. Yet, the finished product is overall pleasing.

Pros : Easy to use comes with a pattern.
Cons : Would watch the star points one is smaller than the rest which should go in the top spot but if not paying attention you may not notice it's a different size.
Other Thoughts : Hopefully will come in different sizes.

When and how did you get started in stained glass? Ive been interested in stained glass for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would sit in churches and watch the (often) biblical depictions come to life when a stray ray of sunlight cast its illumination our way. Sun shadows dancing. I dabbled in many media over the years, trying to find an outlet for some of the visions careening inside, but none of them took. Drawing, painting - even watercolours - no amount of professional training could guide my hand in a satisfactory way. But then there was the glass. I lived abroad for a few years, and wound my way through Europe on my way back to the States when I finished my Peace Corps Service. My last international destination was Paris, where one of my closest friends lives as an organist. Two beautiful autumn

Chances are, right now, in reading this blog post, youre avoiding an overdue task. I too was avoiding a laundry list of work-related tasks in writing this. Procrastination is a part of life, and its certainly always been a part of mine. As a teenager, my parents would accuse me of putting off everything from piano practice to math homework. Id vehemently deny their charges hissing back, I work better under pressure. The truth was, I often felt overwhelmed, under-productive and anxious. Over the years, Ive been able to combat my avoidance issues using 4 tools. The trick is constantly reminding myself of these actions, because they do not come naturally to me. 1. Just Say No. I say yes to everything. Need someone to head up that event? Sure. Want me to design 12 posters for the Car Wash? No problem. Take your kid to daycare? Of course.
