Super Mario - Paper Mario Nintendo Stained Glass by SenatorMars Super Mario - Paper Mario Nintendo Stained Glass by SenatorMars

This is a BIG window, as far as windows like this go approx. 2.5x3 feet.

Ugh. Let me tell you a story kids, sit in front of the fire and let your Uncle Rick tell you how he decided to make this horrible abomination of a monstrosity.

I was going to lead this thing, so I go though the usual procedure and I cut out all the pieces, and I start trying to fit the glass into the lead. It ain't going, brother. I just won't fit. I fall into a deep depression, a black mist descends. I consider ending it all. I can't even look at colored glass. Days!, months!, years! They all go by as I whither away into my malaise. The mere sight of a stained glass window renders me mute and paralyzed.

Then I realized that I had cut the pieces to size for foil, not lead, because Jesus hates me. And I finished everything and it came out ok. Bonus fact, I had to make the lead lines so big because Of that (See, the actual size template pattern was for lead, but I had cut pieces for foil, hence more space between pieces and wider lead lines) that it ended up giving such a large window a lot more reinforcement then otherwise.

Measures 35"x30" and comes in at 134 pieces and 6.9 square feet
