Hi all
If any of you sell via craft fairs and make fused glass art panels how do you display them? I sell my panels with stand offs but when I display them at fairs I have them lying flat on a white tablecloth. As they are transparent they need some light coloured card behind them to show them off to their best. My panels are my best seller on my website and Etsy shop, plus I've sold quite a few via Facebook and Twitter, but not one at a fair and I think it's because of the way I'm displaying them. Anyone any ideas? Below is a link to my website showing the panel in question.

All advice much appreciated.

You could always have one fixed with stand-offs to a larger piece of painted MDF, so that people can see how they are supposed to be displayed.  It wouldn't have to be super-thick, 6mm or 9mm should do it, and enough bigger than the panel itself to border it like a frame or mount.

Depending on how you set up, you could then lean this on a plate stand type of display.

Claude uses a paste board, he has panelled the back so its got more strength and uses it like a wall clamped to the table. Painted ivory and matches cloths etc

Could you not use easels to stand them up on?

Thank you for those suggestions. I'll give the MDF board a go. Thanks very much.
