I do a lot of bottle art and have played around with the glass to find new and unique ideas to make stained glass candle holders. Did you know if you paint your glass with a permanent marker it will do the same thing and the look is amazing. A lot of times I will color the glass with permanent markers before I do the project. This gives a whole new look to the project and when you add the candle the effects are amazing.
