The Clarity Mini-Scope Kaleidosope Kit helps you create a traditional stained glass wheel kaleidoscope in a compact size. The completed scope is about 9 inches long.

Included in the Clarity Mini-Scope Kaleidoscope Kit are three precut pieces of aluminized front surface mirror, a solid brass axle assembly with mounting eyelets, 12 full size patterns for color wheels, and complete instructions. Also included are special patterns and instructions for making a Box-End Kaleidoscope using glass chips inside a glass box to generate the images! (The stained glass and soldering supplies are NOT included.)

Due to the use of the .05" aluminized front surface mirror, the images are even brighter and clearer than in kaleidoscopes twice as large!

With the AEROSCOPE Kit you can make a unique stained glass kaleidoscope which looks like a classic airplane. Not your F-16, with all of its bothersome gun turrets and missile launchers and all of that nonsense, but a real, honest-to-goodness airplane like the Red Baron (alias Snoopy) would be proud to fly.

Each kit contains full-size cardboard patterns and step by step instructions for both Biplane and Monoplane designs. (Glass is not included.) The completed Aeroscope has a tapered fuselage and measures approximately 9" long by 9" across the wings.

Peer into the end of this devilish device, and you will see things that even Snoopy, with his somewhat disordered perception, has never dreamed of.

The flowerscope kit is based on the recent popularity of pressed flowers. But instead of your having to run around out in the back field yanking flowers out of their native habitat, Mrs. Clarity has done the work for you. (Actually, it was some kids uptown. Uptown Shanghai, that is.)

The kit consists of four lamination wheels, pressed flowers, front surface mirror, hardware, patterns and instructions with illustrations.

If you peek into where the exhaust pipe ought to be you will be treated to a fairly pleasing sight. An angled mirror reflects the light coming down through the rotor blades through the optical system which involves several front surface mirrors and things. The kit includes mirrors, brass stuff, neoprene stuff, wire things, patterns and instructions. The glass is not included, and there is where your natural artistic ability will be sure to come to the fore, when you select just the proper kinds for each part of your Kaleidocopter.
