SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY – You will need Affinity Designer to use this product. An Illustrator/Photoshop version of the pack is available HERE and a Procreate version HERE
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 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!

Here’s everything you get with this complete tool kit:
- 120+ One-click Layer Styles – Use these to apply the glass textures and lighting effects instantly. The lighting can be adjusted as desired.
- 1 One-click Leading Layer Style – instantly add subtle depth, shadow and color to your leaded outlines. Change the color and lighting after application.
- 4 vector Leading Brushes – Use these to add convincing outlines to your design.
- A quick reference sheet showing everything that’s included – This makes the large pack easy to navigate. In PDF format.
- Example File – The hummingbird design. Backwards engineer it to see how I created the design.
- Full and Comprehensive Instructions – I’ve included a very thorough guide which takes you through every step of the process of creating your own glass design.

Love it! I purchased this after months of thinking about it. I wasn’t sure how much I would use it, but I couldn’t help myself – I just had to get it, and I have been so happy with the results. The glass has been so carefully sourced and the effects are stunning. The only comment would be that it would be great to have some dark grey leading as well as black. This may well be possible but I haven’t worked out how yet.
Thank you so much!!!

The Stained Glass Creator is my favorite add on for Affinity. The wide assortment of glass textures suits any project to get very realistic results. When I got stuck with a complicated project, Jeremy provided great support on how to use the product and gave valuable artistic advice. This makes a great difference with oher suppliers,
Jeremy really cares about customer satisfaction!
Much appreciated Ignacio!

I was so excited to see the Stained-Glass Creator for Affinity. I sometimes worry that I’ll have trouble using a tool since I consider myself only a moderately skilled Affinity user but literally within 30 minutes of downloading the product and following the super clear and easy tutorial/instructions included I was already creating a design. The amount of work that must have gone into creating the program far exceeds the price. I could not recommend this more highly! Thank you!
Thanks again Joanie!

This is the first thing i’ve bought from here – it took me about an hour of fiddling around to make something I was happy with. I had never used Affinity Designer before, so was learning that as I went too – i’d imagine if you were proficient with the software you’d make leadlight-esque stuff pretty efficiently. L
