whimsical stained glass is one of my favorite
undertakings. This Yellow Submarine stained glass artwork is a classic
example of art that puts a smile on
the face of all who see it.
The Beatles are copper
foiled in order to achieve very thin leadlines. Their facial features are lead
and zinc overlays wherever they could not be done as
separate pieces of glass (for instance, Ringo and Paul's faces are all
overlays, John's glasses and nose are separate pieces of glass but his
eyes and moustache are overlays, and George's face has no overlays
except for his pupils and coat buttons). I used sticky foam (the kind
you use to attach a soapdish to your bathroom tile) to attach the
facial features that don't touch any other lines. The
thickness of the foam gives a 3D quality to the
facial features when seen up close, but it is not noticeable from more
than a few feet away. The portholes of the yellow submarine are 5/32"
lead came and the rest of the artwork is 5/16" lead came. A black
patina gives all of the lead came and solder a charcoal gray
All glasses used in this artwork are
order to be consistent with the cartoon style upon which this piece of
Beatles art is based. The yellow, black, and white glasses are opaque.
All other glasses are cathedral (see-through). Five distinct colors
(red, orange, blue, green, and violet) are used in the border design.
This beatles stained glass artwork is framed in a custom
made 3" walnut frame
to which a medium stain has been applied. It comes ready to hang, as do
all of my artworks that are for sale.
