I love the look of stained glass. It is color and shape given life with light. Working with actual stained glass is beyond my capabilities and finances...it is expensive and dangerous. I have played with the "fake" paint on glass stuff and found the materials fun to work with. Plus unlike real stained glass I can change my mind and redo it as often as I please.
Of course the easiest and cheapest way to play is ink on paper.
Some people have spirit animals for me it has always been trees.
