Suncatchers are thought to have been invented by the Southwest American Indians, but today, they are found in homes everywhere. The dazzling display of rainbows these simple yet beautiful decor items create offer an easy way to add a unique splash of color to any room in the house. If you’re looking for a way to bring the magic of rainbows into your space, these suncatchers are a fun and affordable option. Learn more about how suncatchers work and where to buy suncatchers below!
How Do Suncatchers Work?
Physics teaches us, that light travels in a straight line until it hits an object. When it does hit an object, that light gets reflected, refracted, or absorbed. Suncatchers work to reflect or refract the light. Dispersive prisms within the rainbow catcher separate the light into all of its individual color components, and that’s how the rainbows are formed. It’s mostly science –– and a little bit of magic!
When you get a suncatcher, it’s best to hang it in a window that gets direct sunlight. Once that sunlight hits your suncatcher, your room will be dancing in rainbows! Now you just have to figure out where to buy suncatchers so you can experience the magic yourself.
What Kind of Suncatchers Are Available?
At Rainbow Symphony, we specialize in designing suncatchers that refract light into rainbows. Our suncatchers feature various diffraction designs that will create unique rainbow patterns in your room. Some of our suncatchers, like our original Axicon Suncatcher, feature a sharper rainbow created a more radial pattern throughout the room . Others, like our Gem Series Rainbow Decals, feature crystal prism patterns that cast a hue of rainbows in different sizes and randomized rainbow patterns creating a unique blast throughout the room.
You can choose from simple, glass suncatchers, or you can use rainbow window adhesive films to cover any area that you wish. The options are endless; you just have to use your imagination.
If you’re looking for a more mild rainbow effect from your suncatcher, consider getting a rainbow maker. Rainbow Makers feature a swarovski crystal prism that rotates with the power of solar energy, so your beautiful array of rainbows will travel around the room. Not only does the sun create some rainbows, it also creates the power that rotates your rainbow maker! Once you get one, you’ll want one in every room.
