|A sunny day in Scotland?! Somebody take a picture, quick!|
I got started on this little piece last weekend and it's almost done - I just need to finish the lead came "frame" around the outsides of the piece.
For the background bits, I used this lovely textured glass that has an opalescent sheen. The circles are all scraps left over from other projects (my Grandma, rest in peace, had a wooden plaque on her kitchen wall that said, "Waste not, want not." I bet she approves.)
|Another angle - love the textured glass background bits|
When I finish this piece, I plan to smooth down the solder on the small circle on the left. That got a little blobby there.
This is the start of an extended glass-making frenzy that I'll be in for the next couple of weekends. I'm going home to America to visit my family and friends very soon, and I want to bring home pieces as presents for at least 5 people, so I've got my work cut out for me. I've got all the designs drawn and the glass bought. Wish me luck! I'll post pictures as I go along.
