This is my own original design of a dog or cat suncatcher; it is edged in lead came and light enought to hang from a suction cup (included).
.
Read further for custom work.

This example of my art is a kiln-fired 4"x4" white opalescent glass base on which I silk-screened MY line drawing. I then painted the animal and the background and then went back and scratched through the paint in a pattern to reveal the white glass below. I experiment.

NO TWO EVER TURNED OUT EXACTLY ALIKE, even of the same basic design, being hand-painted. I also have some cat breed examples and some horses.

I HAVE ABOUT 300 OF THESE TILES IN STOCK OF ALL DIFFERENT BREEDS OF DOGS and cats.
I chose a few to photograph today, but if your breed is not shown here:
PLEASE CONTACT ME AND ASK TO SEE ALL EXAMPLES OF A CERTAIN BREED.
Some of the dogs look like mixed breeds, or general dogs. Narrow my search down by describing your pet or send a photo and I can select some to show you.

I have the fewest tiles in the most popular breeds: Dachounds, Pug, Boston Terrier, and labs, but will gladly show you what I have. I tried to make at least one of all breeds.

Will it look exactly like your pet, probably not. You have to use your imagination and see if it is "close enough".

YES, I could make a tile exactly (as close as I can get) from your photo, or I can do 100 gold labs for your club.
No, the price will not be the same as I am asking for this already finished example listed here.
The price depends on how well I could capture the animal from a photo with your color preferences. These French enamel glass paints I work with have to be hand mixed and change color in the kiln, so you have less range of colors than an artist using oil paints. You never know until you lift the kiln lid as to the intensity of a color, but part of the process is the surprize.

I also make custom full body layered suncatchers from photos, some using just the glass color and some with the applied paint. How this would work:
I would send you a line drawing and you would owe me upon approval of the design. Payment would be in advance before I ship. Price is determined by "the agony factor" and we reach an agreement before I do anything. I ALWAYS PUT FORTH EFFORT AND DO THE BEST I CAN, a professional job.

Good is not FAST, SO KEEP THAT IN MIND AS WELL.

Suction Cups: yes, I know they sometimes fall off the window. This can be reduced by: 1. putting it on a double paned glass, 2. cleaning the window first, 3. using a window that gets indirect sun rather than searing sun which evaporates the moisture, 4. after licking the suction cup, letting it stay an hour to see if it is stuck well, and then hanging the suncatcher on it, 5. taking it down every year and washing it in hot water to make it soft and put it back up, 6. not hanging something too heavy on it. You could silicone it permanently to the glass and live with it.

HINT: if you can live with this particular suncatcher, you better take it now; it may not be available tomorrow. I want to sell what I have made up FIRST and it might take a while to get around to firing a batch of custom orders; there is no profit in firing a partially loaded kiln with todays fuel prices.

YOU would save on postage getting several at once. Think gifts
