Bed Glass Panel Pattern Ready

😀  Ah, finally — I finished the pattern for my bed panels.  I call it Red Sun at Night.

This Photoshop [Ps] rendering does not do justice to the colours & flow of the stained glass.

When the camera sees the yellow/white glass with the blue walls behind them, it comes up with green — but when you see the glass in actual light, the yellow is distinctly separate from the blue behind it.

Of course I need to keep the background in mind when selecting glass.  The white iridescent has large stretches of clear & the blue wall will be seen through it [much like in the triangle pieces above, it appears to be beigey-yellow behind the white — that’s my workbench].

The blue glass worked out well on the pattern but placing the yellow, orange, & red was a big stumbling block.  The red photographs way brighter than it is & the orange looks more like red while the red looks more like orange.

I tried switching a couple around in Ps but it wasn’t until I got the glass sheets out, in the light with the blue walls behind them, for me to get the combo in the order that flowed best.

The angle of the rays also proved challenging — until I used Π [pi] in my calculations.  Now I think they’re more balanced.

I took a head-on shot of the bed [not so easy considering how high the headboard posts are] & in Ps, placed the panels & fabric headboard in their approximate places [no, the flowers on the brocade are not that big — photo not at same scale].

The two panels will sit in stained frames attached to the posts & the fabric section.  I really like how the light blue glass matches the wall — & that blue will be peeking through the white & yellow glass pieces.  So very exciting.  So, so cool.  😎

Now to print this multi-page pattern & make sure it’s taped together perfectly square [well, as close as I can get it].  Then, I can start cutting some blue glass tonight — maybe all the white.  Yahoo!  Like Yabba-dabba-doo Yahoo!
