Building a Stained Glass Window...... Step 2

After the initial design is decided, a more accurate pattern needs to be drawn.

I started out by using the measurements and drawing of the initial design.  Then, I got the exact measures of the window and drew that in as the border.  To do this, I subtracted the measurements of the original drawing from the accurate measures of the window opening to find the difference.  Then, I measured that difference (16 cm) from the outside border of the original drawing create a new, more accurate border.
After this, I measured the width of the Zinc came to be used to frame the glass (8cm) and measured this amount from the original border and drew that in.
Then, I extended the design lines out to meet the Zinc came border.

These picture show the 2 additional lines and the design extension.  I apologize for the orientation, but it seems no matter what I do, I cannot get these pictures to post in the north/south orientation.

This was a tedious task for me and took a long time.  Notice the white out lines........
