These are some of the Light Catchers I made using
Mirrored Plexiglass and Baltic Birch plywood.
It is hard to take pictures of mirrors. I used light
Reflected off a white background to light the light
Catchers. They are much more beautiful when seen
SVGs for all of the Light Catchers, and a tutorial I put together
on how to create the frame from Stained Glass patterns using
Photoshop and Illustrator are in the attached zip file. The tutorial
has lots of pictures.
Cut the wood frame
Cut the Plexiglass pieces. Leave the protective paper or plastic
on the Plexiglass.
Cut the Plexiglass with the shiny side up.
The pieces are in the Color folder
Cut Clear Label Backing and felt.
I use Onlinelabels.com OL175CL Clear Gloss labels
and self adhesive felt. You can get the felt on Amazon
or Wall Mart.
The clear plastic unifies and strengthens the entire project.
I have dropped one from head height without it breaking or
Loosing any pieces.
The adhesive on the plastic is very strong. Once placed, the wood
Frame and Plexiglass pieces will not come off.
Place the wood frame on the plastic backing.
Insert the pieces
Turn the Light Catcher over and apply the felt.
Turn the Light Catcher over and remove the protective
paper or plastic.
