Iron Hammer Studio built and painted Chiesa Santa Maria del Villagio al Fiume for it's premiere at Historicon 2018.
They did a fantastic job – no wonder it was sold at the convention!
On top of that they now provided some stunning stained glass window designs!
The files are available for free in the Downloads section of thingsfromthebasement.com.
Just print on Overhead Projector Transparency Film and glue in place.

Wow. Amazing.
Too bad the Protestant churches in AWI New England eschewed stained glass.
Or did they?

Plenty of protestant churches in old England have stained glass windows, so maybe…

New England, no, not that I'm aware of in the 18th century.

Reformed Dutch Churches in New York and New Jersey, yes! But early styles were coats-of-arms images such as the Old Dutch Church in Kingston, NY

Later on, stained glass of bibilical scenes became very popular even in New England, but that was Mr. Tiffany's doing! I'm unaware of any pre-Tiffany story scene windows.

Olde England kept some of their stained glass after the Reformation only out of economic necessity. Fanatical vandals were merrily going about smashing them, until the Church complained that it was too expensive to replace them. Even plain glass wasn't cheap!

Thanks for the link. I am building an MDF Church at the moment and was wondering what to do about glass.
