Create authentic looking colored glass designs and illustrations with the first and only stained glass creator!

Stained Glass Creator

Please note: You will need BOTH Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CS2 – CC to use this product in full.

If you’ve ever wanted to create your own leaded glass designs but were put off by the high cost of materials and the risk of glass cuts then this pack is for you – for the first time you are now able to create a convincing looking digital version of glass art from the safety of your own computer.

How was the pack made?

I painstakingly scanned hundreds of dollars worth of real glass samples some of which I salvaged myself (this was no easy feat!). These were cleaned up and converted into seamless, repeat, texture patterns. They were then combined with adjustable lighting effects and saved as one-click layer styles which enable the user to transform shapes and type instantly and easily. I also created a variety of leading brushes so, you can add authentic looking outlines to your designs.

So, what are you waiting for? Start making your own stained glass designs today!

Included in this set:

• 120+ Authentic Stained Glass Seamless Repeat Patterns – 12 different types of glass, each in 10 color variations (or more). 2000 x 2000 px in size. Compatible with Photoshop only.
• 120+ One-click Layer Styles – Use these to apply the glass textures and lighting effects instantly. The lighting can be adjusted as desired. Compatible with Photoshop only.
• 1 One-click Leading Layer Style – instantly add subtle depth, shadow and color to your leaded outlines. Change the color and lighting after application. Compatible with Photoshop only.
• 4 Leading Brushes – Use these to add convincing outlines to your design. Compatible with Illustrator only.
• A quick reference PDF showing everything that’s included – This makes the large pack easy to navigate.
• Example Designs – Two finished designs plus the Illustrator leading workings. Use these to see how I created them.
• Full and Comprehensive Instructions – I’ve included a very thorough guide which takes you though every step of the process of creating your own glass design.

  1. Belinda

    Would love to see an Affinity Designer/Photo version.

    • Annabel Smith

      Hey Belinda,

      We always love to try and make your design wishes come true so we will definitely ask the lovely Jeremy at The Artifex Forge to see if he is considering creating an Affinity compatible version of this pack in future :).

      • Belinda

        Thank you Annabel,

        Is there a way we can be alerted when new products with particular tags become available?

        • SJ- Community Manager

          Hey Belinda,

          Thanks so much for taking the time to come back to Annabel!

          I’ve just popped you over an email as i’m not sure what you mean by particular tags, but rest assured once I have some more info from you, I can definitely help :D

  2. Susan

    I was wondering what font was used in most of the examples. It’s very pretty, especially on the sample invitation. Thank you!

    • Annabel Smith

      We’re so happy to hear that you really love the fonts that Jeremy has used for these preview graphics Susan!

      The font in the invitation graphic is called Church in the Wildwood by Ornaments of Grace- you can check out the full collection here: :).

      • Susan

        Thank you :)

        • Annabel Smith

          You’re so welcome Susan- glad I could help!

      • Elaine M.

        Font Spring no longer sells Church in the Wildwood Font :-(

        • Zack Parks

          Hey Elaine,

          I hope you don’t mind me picking this up from here. Annabel is currently away from her desk today so she asked me to reach out to save you from any further delays. I am sorry to hear that Font Spring has stopped selling Church in the wildwood font. This may be due to the designer having removed this font from sale. My apologies for any inconvenience caused by this.

  3. Megan Dirsa-DuBois

    What a beautiful product! Sorry it’s not in my budget right now, but I’ll probably be coming back!

    • Annabel Smith

      We’re so glad that you think so too Megan- Jeremy will be so pleased to hear that this pack is definitely on your wish list and we hope that you enjoy picking this one up soon!

  4. Jennifer

    I know that the requirements say that Illustrator is necessary (I don’t have that in my CC subscription anymore) but from the little diagram instructions above, wouldn’t this work if I created the leading outlines as a vector and did vector shapes within Photoshop and then I could apply the layer styles. I understand that without the illustrator leading brushes, my lines might look a little different, but it seems like that should work.
    I would really love to buy and use this (stained glass is my jam), but right now I am not upping my CC subscription to get Illustrator.

    Also wondering if once installed the color palette can be tweaked? Is there a way to save new layer styles that I could customize the colors on.

    Thanks for any help!

    • Annabel Smith

      Hey Jennifer,

      Thanks so much for your comment and I’m sorry that you currently do not have Illustrator. So the designer has advised that to get full use out of this product, you do require Illustrator and Photoshop, however you may be able to work around this one without using the Leading Brushes. The colour palettes have not been provided as editable, however you possibly could experiment with colour overlays if you have a specific colour in mind Jennifer :).

      With our 30 day refund policy you always have the option to purchase this pack and take it for a spin for a few days to see if this pack is your jam. I hope that you will love it, and if you do find that these are not quite what you are looking for, we can certainly refund you!

  5. Daniel Jernberg

    Based on other products made by Mr. Artifex this is a must buy. Just waiting for my next paycheck so I can get this!

    • Carol Stratford

      Hey Daniel,

      Thanks for the comment and we totally agree with you- anything by The Artifex Forge is just so lovely! We hope you absolutely love it when you get to take it for a spin :)

      • Daniel Jernberg

        Now that I’ve bought this, I have to make up a reason to use it in a project. ;)

        • Annabel Smith

          Heehee we are so excited to hear what you create with this one Daniel, and please do feel free to share any of your design with us, we would love to see what you are working on!
