first thing i did was go on the internet got a piece of paper size BIOSHOCK logo i then measure it in cm and converted into scale on to the piece of cardboard shown. also this was my very firs stained glass piece i had to buy all the stuff to do it which was about $500 for all the stuff even the glass at just a stained glass store. they have kits you can buy i just got random stuff to start. i used a glass cutter, a glass grinder, copper tape, soldier and soldier pen and of coarse glass of your choice.

Step 1: Bioshock Stained Glass Logo
second i got my glass and started to cut out the letters and the building shapes on the bottom.
Step 2: Bioshock Stained Glass Logo
cutting out letters and buildings...
Step 3: Bioshock Stained Glass Logo
started to soldier some of the buildings on bottom left.clean pieces in water and dry. to soldier the pieces together you have to wrap and copper tape around the edges of one of the pieces and then fold the rest on the the face and the back face. doing this to all of the pieces makes it so you can soldier them all together. make sure of your glass thickness when buying copper tape and the size of the piece you are doing meaning big art work thicker tape because it will be stronger..only soldier one face of whole artwork and then flip over and soldier back side of whole artwork when done easier and piece will be flatter.
Step 4: Bioshock Stained Glass Logo

Step 5: Bioshock Stained Glass Logo
