Stained-glass windows

The pre-Reformation medieval stained glass panes are of national historical and architectural importance as they constitute what is "probably the most complete set of medieval stained glass in Britain", consisting of 28 windows displaying biblical scenes. They were added after the church was rebuilt in the 1490s by John Tame, under the instructions of his son Edward Tame. The glass was made between 1500 and 1517 and the panes now attributed to the Flemish glazier Barnard Flower (d.1517), glazier to King Henry VII. According to some sources, John Thornton of Coventry and Galyon Hone were also associated with the Netherlandish Renaissance painted glass at this church. The glass survived the destruction that was common during the Reformation and the English Civil War in a more complete state than at any other parish church in England. During the Second World War, the stained glass windows were removed and stored in a cellar for safekeeping from 1939 to 1945. A conservation and restoration programme began in 1988 and finished in 2010.Clear glass now protects the old glass.

When I apply to college, how can I show colleges my artistic ability?

Scan and print jpegs. I work in stained glass, (30" diameter)and in pottery(about 4" diameter and 6" high), and I give them away to charity auctions or as gifts to people I admire. I think that would make an interesting essay

Techniques for photographing stained glass?

This is a great place to try HDR. I've done a lot of shooting at a workshop where they make blown glass (and other pieces), and although I love the light streaming in via the old windows in the shop, it's impossible to properly expose for both the window light and the artwork. I've had good results using fill flash for non-specular subjects (ie, people) under these conditions, but adding flash to glass is really difficult to do with portable equipment.Instead, with shots like the following, I shot a bracket of exposures and compressed the tones into a single exposure.

I am considering trying a stained glass film. Will the film hide the white grid pattern that exists on window

Anything that is already on the window is going to show through as a silhouette when light (sunshine) comes through. I've seen those stained-glass films in Home Depot, and they are really nice, but, they wo not "hide" the white grid pattern, only mask it some of the time. Is the white grid painted on? Or pieces of wood? If at all possible, I would try to remove the white grid pattern first.

How to Clean Stained Glass

A year ago, we rented a hundred-year-old duplex with three old stained glass windows. Those windows were a major selling point when it came to choosing an apartment, but for a whole year they made me feel kind of dirty. While everything else in the place got scrubbed and polished on a pretty regular basis, I never touched the stained glass windows. And my guess is that most of the house's previous occupants also left them alone to get dusty, oxidized, and dull. After all, a stained glass window is a work of art, and you can not just wash a work of art with regular all-purpose cleaner. Obviously. But what are you supposed to use? As it turns out, nothing if you can help it. To maintain clean stained glass windows, you should just dust them occasionally with a soft dry cloth. But if, like me, you suspect your antique stained glass has not been cleaned in a couple of decades, you might want to work your way through a few steps to get the grunge off them. In fact, that soft dry cloth is a good place to start. If that seems to be leaving behind some filth, you will want to put water on the cloth (distilled water, to avoid streaks or spots). If you are still seeing a dirty residue on the glass, you can move on to an ammonia-free, vinegar-free, non-abrasive, pH-neutral cleaner. For normal cleaning of residential stained glass, this should do the trick. If you are working with severely soiled glass, you will need something stronger and maybe the help of a professional. • Before you start cleaning your stained glass windows, get all your supplies together. You will need a large bowl; at least one gallon of distilled water from the grocery store; a soft cloth, like the microfiber cloth in the picture, which I got in the automotive aisle at a department store; and a gentle cleaner if your windows require it. I used Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid because it does not contain any ammonia, vinegar, or abrasives. And according to Seventh Generation's website, it has a pH between 6.5 and 7.5. Perfect. Once you've assembled your supplies, you can mix the distilled water with a small amount of dish soap in the bowl. • You will probably want to lay towels on the windowsill to catch any drips. Otherwise, you risk having your stained glass window cleaning project turn into a wall and floor cleaning project, too. • To minimize drips in the first place, wring out the cloth after soaking it in the soap and water mixture.It's best if the cloth is just damp rather than sopping wet; more water wo not get the glass any cleaner, but it will make more of a mess and increase the risk of streaks and spots when the soapy mixture dries. You should also rinse the cloth often as you clean the window. • Now that you are ready to wash the stained glass window, I recommend starting at the top and working your way downward, so you can wipe up any drips from above as you get to the lower parts of the window. In traditional leaded stained glass, individual pieces of glass in different colors and shapes are separated by a thin strip of lead. Also, when you encounter stubborn dirt, you can rub the cloth firmly against the glass, but do not use so much pressure that you risk cracking the window. • Dip a cotton swab in the soap and water mixture, and use it to clean around the edges and in the corners of each piece of glass. You might be surprised by how much grime your cloth misses in those areas. • After you finish cleaning an individual section of glass, dry it with a second soft cloth or a paper towel. Then, continue the process with each piece of glass in turn until the whole window is clean. If you can access the glass on the outside of the building, you should repeat this method there for maximum effect. However, many stained glass windows are, like mine, covered by an outside storm window to protect the glass and reduce energy costs. In that case, you will have to settle for cleanliness on the inside only. I actually did not notice a dramatic difference in the appearance of my windows after I cleaned them, but I was satisfied just knowing how much dirt I had wiped off. If you would like to see for yourself, move your mouse over the two pictures above. Lead is really useful stuff. Useful stuff that happens to poison people who inhale or ingest it. Accelerated tooth decay, digestive problems and infertility can occur alongside the more infamous neurological effects. Children are particularly susceptible to lead toxicity, and exposure to lead puts them at risk for behavioral problems and learning disabilities. Despite our long-standing knowledge of the hazards of lead, people have used the malleable and corrosion-resistant metal in a huge array of products, from water pipes and paint to gasoline and wine. It was not until the 1970s that U.S. lawmakers really focused on limiting its use. But even since then, lead has remained the most common material used for piecing together patterns in stained glass. This is usually not a big deal, since lead is not harmful just sitting there. The only people at high risk from the lead in stained glass are restorers and artists, who can inhale fumes when the lead is heated or dust while they sand or saw strips of lead. But if you have stained glass windows or artwork in your home, there are a few things you should be aware of. First, stained glass lead is supposed to be a dark color, so you should not worry about trying to polish it. If it will make you feel better to remove residual dirt from the lead, you can do that by the same method you use to clean the glass. Over time, however, lead can develop a powdery white coating due to oxidization. If the lead in your stained glass seems oxidized, put on some gloves and wipe the powder away with a cloth. And then throw the gloves and the cloth away. Finally, if you must restore or move a stained glass window, ventilate your workspace, wear a respirator, and keep children out of the area. Immediately after working with lead you, your clothes, and any surfaces the lead dust may have contacted should be thoroughly washed. Ecover's All Purpose Cleanerqualifies as a safe way to clean stained glass. Despite a lemony fragrance, its pH is neutral and it meets all our other criteria for a stained glass cleaner by being non-abrasive and ammonia-free. Method makes a couple of products that could safely clean stained glass, but I am going to go ahead and recommend the Daily Granite, since they brag that it's as gentle on surfaces as water. But much tougher on dirt and stains. You could also use Method's Window Wash, since unlike many of its green counterparts, this organic window solution contains no acidic vinegar or citrus oils. You can order bottles of Method Granite Cleaner from Amazon. As a bonus, both of these products come in handy spray bottles, but beware the temptation to spray directly on the stained glass.

What Are Some Ways to Keep My Hair Really Healthy?
Use professional shampoo & conditioner. I know it may seem like a rip-off, however all the shampoos like Pantene, Garnier, etc. have a high alcohol content....since the normal pH of your hair is 4.5-5.5, things containing high amounts of alcohol throw your hair all out of whack and cause breakage, split-ends, fly-aways, etc. The reason these shampoos make your hair feel soft is because they contain high amounts of humectants, which are just a cover for how damaging they really are! Another tip is ALWAYS use a thermal protector while applying heat. Heat appliances cause tons of damage to your hair. Usually this is a cream/clear gel you apply before blow drying. Never use a flat iron on hair that is not completely dry!1. Split End Help. ( 10 Points) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?For sure you should get a trim and maybe even cut your hair as short as you are comfortable doing it. You should for no reason straighten or dye your hair. Look for some Garnier Fructis or Pantene shampoos and conditioner for curly hair so that it extra moisturizes it and helps the split ends repair themselves. I say from experience that ppl with curly hair have really bad split ends, which is why we have special stuff in our hair products. The split ends wont magically go away in like a month or a few weeks, but you will see improvement after a while. Oh, and for sure DO NOT PICK THEM OFF!! It will just make it worse. Every two months until your hair is healthy get a trim. just maybe half an inch or an inch will be just fine. Eventually your hair will go back to normal. Good luck with that!.2. Whats the best shampoo conditioner for cheap?clever or V05 are solid inexpensive ($a million) shampoos, yet whilst it is composed of conditioner i could bypass Tresemme ($6) it does an somewhat solid interest. i take advantage of salon shampoo because of the fact i am form of a hair snob, yet I nonetheless use the cheap conditioner. Pantene is undesirable on your hair (too plenty protein and reasons alot of greater build up on the hair) so i does not bypass there. desire this permits! My hair is oily, superb, and colour-taken care of if that helps you any!3. How can I get my curly hair to be nice like Taylor Swift?Haha i have the same hair long and curly..but not pretty curly! im completely obsessed with taylor and her hair so i did so playing with it and what you really NEED to get is the conair hot sticks!! they are these little flexible curlers and they are not very expensive and i would look like a frizz ball without them!! you can like get them at walmart. anyways what i do when iwear my hair curly is like i get up and get in the shower and wash it and condition it and this may sound weird but dont use a whole lot of conditioner just enough to get it done cause it will help your hair hold the curl the just get out and towel dry your hair till it is just damp and then put a curling mouse in it and frizz serum then finish blow drying it straight! and you know have the curlers on like when your gettin in the shower and then just make sure the little light is on meaning that they are hot enough and then seperate your hair into pretty small peices (if you have really thick hair then you might need to buy two sets cause they only have 14 in them and you use small sections) and then start from the botom of your hair and role it through your hair and pin it together youll see the instructions on how to pin them together and make sure you wrap it all the way to the top of your head and leave them for like 15 or 20 minutes while your finishin gettin ready and then use like a light hairspray about 5 minutes before you take them out then your done. i know this thing was really long but its not that hard lol!!!! hope i helped good luck!!!!!!!!
