Early Christians of Ireland were quick to adopt the Celtic style into their religious artwork. Here, two motifs exemplify the simple beauty of the Celtic cross. The circle around the center of the cross is one of the distinctive features of Celtic style. These two can be done as Clings, or enlarged to fit on the 8"x10" styrene panels.
If you are buying a new door, you can do the Gallery Glass motif on it BEFORE it is installed. But if you already have a door that has glass in it, or if you decide that just doing the sidelights would help immensely for the time being, then you will have to do them using the Vertical Application Method. Details of the various Application Methods can be found under Project Categories - Window Makeovers on the right side of the this home page. There is also another alternative applicaton method--the Modular Method. The intricate parts of the design will be done as a "Cling" then peeled up from the reusable surface and pressed on he glass of the sidelights, then the clear bachground and border colors are applied directly to the glass. This holds the clings on the window permanently. See More Celtic Projects - Patterns and Color Keys for directions.
