Art Play Day Workshops

Inspirational Playbook

Dana Rau, Author & Artist

Join Dana in her studio to create a vibrant and expressive book. We’ll remind ourselves that art was once synonymous with play by experimenting with paint, stamps, stencils, mark-making tools, and more. Then we’ll cut, fold, and bind our creations (finished book size about 5” by 6”), which we’ll fill with inspirational quotes to reflect our adventurous spirit. No prior experience is necessary.

Stained Glass Care

Stained glass artwork contains LEAD in the solder and lead came.  Wash hands after handling the artwork and, as a general precaution, keep the artwork away from children.

Metal solder and came oxidizes over time – this is a natural process that cannot be avoided, and can occur faster in different environments.  To clean and polish your artwork, apply a generous amount of lemon oil (inexpensive lemon oil for cleaning wood furniture is fine).  Wipe the oil on the leadwork and glass, and carefully polish with a dry clean cloth until the surface is dry.  If needed, you can follow up with alcohol or glass cleaner on the glass portions only, to remove any remaining oily residue from the artwork.  If areas on the solder or lead came appear with heavy oxidation (white crusty appearance), these areas can be cleaned with steel wool or the rough side of green or blue sponge, being careful not to scratch the glass, then polished with lemon oil.

Avoid immersion in soap and water, as some of my artwork contains paper or wood components that will warp or discolor when wet.

Terms & Conditions

Every piece of artwork from Sunlight Artistry is designed and hand-made by the artist/owner.  As such, there will be differences in color, texture, and glass opacity between pieces fabricated in the same lot, using the same design.  No two pieces will be identical.  Capturing the complexity and beauty of stained glass artwork is challenging and I am not a professional photographer, so I try my best to post photos that adequately reflect my artwork.  Each piece is an original design by Sunlight Artistry and should not be reproduced by anyone without explicit permission.

 I reserve the right to change prices on any item at any time, as material and shipping costs are constantly changing.

 

Shipping and Returns

All sales are final.

Please allow at least 5-7 business days for items to ship.

If any artwork is damaged during shipping, please contact me directly within 48 hours of receiving the item and I will work with you on getting it repaired in a timely fashion.
