I made a stained glass octopus!

UPDATE: You can see the finished, framed piece here.

Hi all! Good news: today I finished soldering the stained glass octopus that I've been working on for what seems like forever.

I still need to put the lead came "frame" around the outside edges, and The Scotsman has said that he'll construct an actual wood frame for the piece. I also need to do the final cleaning to get off the fingerprints and winkle the last of the flux out of all of the little nooks & crannies. The piece is about 16.5 x 11.7 in.

I was just so happy to get it (mostly) done that I wanted to post some pictures!

The stained glass octopus with some sun coming through it. I wish you could see it in person, it looks so much cooler than photos can show.
Here's the soldering in progress. It's all full of flux.

A little closer up on the tentacles
Tentacle action!
So, what do you think? Would you hang it in your window? Pin It Now!

  1. I love it! Great job. Is there somewhere I can find the pattern? I would like to try doing one for myself. :)
