Stained glass windows made easy

Use expanded metal mesh
RELATED TOPICS: MODELING TOOLS
When modeling stained glass windows, I use the expanded metal mesh found in craft stores and hobby shops. It’s made for plaster-casting molds, but works well for windows.

The mesh comes in different sizes that are suitable for various scales. It can easily be formed and cut to depict the desired picture or scene.

To represent the glass, I use clear plastic glue or window-maker (such as Microscale Micro Kristal Klear) and translucent paint. The mesh can be shaped as needed to depict damaged windows.
