Product Description

Add a Splash of Color to Your Home
Custom cast glass light switch plates will add style and make your home stand out. Create them to coordinate with your room, incorporate an accent color, even switch them out for the holidays. Try adding glow-in-the-dark powder for fun. High quality casting molds are slip-cast from specially formulated clay, accept kiln-wash uniformly and do not crack under repeated use when handled correctly.

Mold includes two holes for screw placement. Simply inset shelf-paper into openings before filling mold with frit, see image below. Inside measurements are 3-3/8" x 5" x 5/8". Overall mold measures 4-3/4" x 6-1/4" x 1-1/4". See size perspective of mold with quarter images shown. Kiln wash before use.

No drilling needed! Additional images show how fiber paper is used to create holes. Blue switch plate project courtesy of IMD Ceramics. Red switch plate by Ellen's Glass Act, from Delphi's Online Artist Gallery.

Pros : Measuring frit makes this a sure thing.

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.
