Stained Glass Suncatchers
What are Stained Glass Suncatchers?
A stained glass suncatcher is simply referred to as the light-catcher. It is a stained glass work of art that is usually being hang on the windows to lighten the effect of too much and intense sunlight. In order to make it look more pleasant, suncatchers are often made small. The shapes also vary with designs. Some of the suncatchers form an abstract pattern while some custom designs depict a scene or expresses love for nature. Usual nature based designs are flowers and animals like birds and butterflies. Experts usually choose Celtic designs to work on. Suncatchers are made very colourful, usually with three (3) or more colour combinations. Unlike the usual stained glass which are mounted on the walls to act as the main windows, suncatchers usually has a hanging design for you to have it simply hooked on your windows.
Suncatchers may also not be made from stained glass. It can also be created through combination of coloured plastic or thin painted glass. Both designs are made available in both mass-production and handcrafts. There are a lot of stained glass artists who make varieties of suncatchers according to their customer’s preference.
There are actually suncatcher kits available in the market for people to enjoy making them right in their very own homes. Even children can make some but children’s kits are packed with plastic material and not glass, which can easily be painted with safe transparent paints.
Suncatchers which are mass produced are also very popular today. These types of suncatchers are usually mounted into other objects. Suncatchers could be incorporated both inside and outside your precious homes together with some decorative accessories like chimes, lightings and other garden decors. Most often than not, the captivating feature of a suncatcher lies on the effects brought by the sunlight that passes through it.
When you decided to hang a sun catcher in your window panel, make sure that you give priority on the weight of the suncatcher. It might cause more damage rather than beautifying your home. Consider that stained glass suncatchers are heavier than the plastic ones so a brittle wooden window frame could not possible support this one.
Lighter plastic sun catchers can be safely used typically for window hangings. Since plastic suncatchers are lighter, you can use just about any size you want and have it hung flat on your ceiling and on your windows inside you home.
