HOW IS STAINED GLASS CREATED?
First, you need to develop a sketch in any vector editor. Use any vector editor that immediately reads the area of the image and calculates the consumption of materials.
The preferred and edited image must be loaded into the editor, and then using the tools to outline the sketch.
The scale of the picture can be changed, cut, and also colored to see how it will look in the finished version.
The final drawing should to be saved in the format of the HPGL machine.
Apply a polymer contour with a CNC machine. Vary its height and width as needed. This can be done both during setup and during work. It is also possible to apply and sufficiently small details of the picture. Allow the contour to dry before the next step. The image becomes finally stabile within a few days, but 24 hours will be enough to continue the work.
The further work will require a flat, horizontal surface. Polymers are very fluid and it is important to prevent slipping to one side. The table, on request, can be made by yourself. Better perception of the ready-made product and colours can be achieved if the surface is equipped with the booster-light.
At the fifth stage, we fill in the dried out intercontour space. Use a two-component transparent base. Using special formulas, add small amounts of pigments to obtain the desired shades. This allows to change the colours and their saturation. In the same way, achieve the effect of a smooth transition from one color to another. The surface tension of the fill dries like a lens, creating a lifelike stained glass effect
