Description

This amazing glass suncatcher craft kit has been two years in the planning and now it’s finally here!

A wonderful DIY suncatcher kit which contains everything you need to design and make your own colourful Sun catcher. It contains real specialist art glass, no plastic or imitation “glass” here!

Are you a crafter who wants to try something different? This is the kit for you! Worried you don’t have enough creative flair to be able to make your own suncatcher? Fear not! You absolutely can do it. Instructions and design ideas are supplied in the kit to guide you in making your own work of art.

The colours included in the kit are; Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Light Blue, Dark Blue and Purple. Use some of the colours or all of them, it’s entirely your choice! For example, you could use the supplied design ideas in the booklet or create your own design masterpiece. The kit comes with full instructions including safety guidelines.

How it works:

  • Buy the kit
  • Receive the kit
  • Design and make your own suncatcher
  • Take a photo of your finished design (this is really important – if anything happens in transit, I’ll be able to fix it)
  • Box it back up in the packaging it came in and send it to me
  • I’ll then fire your suncatcher in the kiln and drill a hole and add a hanger
  • I send the completed suncatcher to you.
  • Turnaround time from me receiving your Suncatcher back to me will be approximately 1 week
  • There is no time limit for you to return your design to me for firing in the kiln – Perfect to store as Christmas or birthday presents!

I use the best glass available from Spectrum System 96. Each sheet of glass is handcut by me. All items are designed and crafted by me in my home studio. The whole piece is fused and properly annealed in my kiln for over 12 hours, aiding strength and durability.

Despite my attempts at photographing my glass art, it is sometimes difficult to capture the gorgeous colours, the texture and the tactile nature. I try my best but customers have often said that the pieces in real life are just so much “more” than in the photo’s! Colours may vary, depending on your screen settings.
