Laser Scribed & Cut "Clear View" Glazing
Laser Scribed & Cut Arched Glazing ----
These windows are cut from .030 acrylic( plex). The "Lead Came Lines" are laser scribed on the rear side of the window. Black water
based paint, or ink, is then rubbed into the scribes.

Then, a piece of stretched plastic sprue is used to apply Tamiya Clear acrylic Red and Green. After the red & green has been applied, 
an amber mix of Tamiya Clear Yellow & Orange is applied to
represent the Cathedral Glass, as called out on the carbuilder's
drawing, per Mr. Bosenberry's specifications. (The plastic sprue
was used as there are no paint brushes commercially available
that are small enough to be used in this application.)

Then, a diluted wash of waterbased acrylic white paint is brushed on
the rear of the  window to represent the appearance of stained glass
with  "swirls" running through it. This is a LOT of work.

I hope to be able to make these laser scribed & cut Arched Window
Sets available commercially some day if the interest warrants.
