Do you have the exact tools?

You've taken up Vitrail stained glass work, but do you have all the right tools? Tools such as Cerne Relief outliner, or if you prefer, the self adhesive lead strip to draw patterns and create outlines. Vitrail auxiliaries also include different mediums to lighten colours, to make them glitter, to give them a matte effect, or to create a crackled effect (the crackle kit comes with instructions). Find out about these and other Vitrail auxiliaries in our slide show.
