Free Stained Glass Patterns

Free stained glass patterns are perfect for crafting your own stained glass suncatchers, lampshades, panels, windows and candle holders. The web offers a great variety of free stained glass patterns and stained glass patterns for sale. More stained glass patterns are available from specialty publications.

Stained glass patterns vary from pen and ink drawings with little or no digital processing, to being nearly entirely done with computer graphic programs.

A hand-drawn stained glass pattern gives more convincing, natural-looking results than those that are made digitally. Nonetheless, computers are very useful for producing geometric patterns.

Online patterns are especially useful because they can be printed to the size that you desire using standard computer graphics programs - you don't have to scan the free stained glass patterns, it's already done for you. Neither do you have to worry about destroying the free stained glass pattern while using it, you can easily print a fresh new copy everytime! Follow this light green link for instruction on resizing patterns and this link for printing patterns.

Why do individuals and companies provide stained glass patterns for free? One of the rewards of publishing online is that one doesn't need to worry about the marketing and material constraints of publishing a book, because they are made available very little cost to the publisher. Glass manufacturers and stained glass suppliers will publish them to attract customers.

Regardless of where you obtain your patterns, make sure that they are designed by experienced stained glass artists with some clear notions about "cuttability."
