The Cutting's Done On the Latest Stained Glass

And the grinding too! It's been 24 days but I've taken 3 days off for various reasons... so really 21 days.

Been working on the copper foiling but I ran out of the size copper foil I've been using for the pieces that are normal-sized thickness. After the foiling I will solder and patina the piece.

But as I wait for the new foil (local store isn't open on Mondays and I ran out on Sunday), I have been working on a new design of cardinals. Always looking forward! LOL!

Thank you for visiting. Please come back soon!

Chipping Away

LOL! Get it? Chipping. OK, that was lame.

Seriously, I'm slowly working on my rooster design. Taking awhile because I've only been working with stained glass for a month, so some of these cuts were very tricky - ESPECIALLY the tail feathers. A lot of those curves break in the wrong places. I changed the pattern along the way and thankfully I have a new bandsaw that steps in before I waste a whole sheet of glass again, (cutting just one ImPoSSiBle piece).

I just love working with stained glass. It allows me to use my art and design background along with working with a new medium with will not grow old soon, like a lot of the crafts I've tried.

SUNNY TENNIS MORNING

I have to say that this project was cursed from the beginning...

The pieces didn't cut as well as the all clear glass version. I had to go and get more of the lighter yellow glass because I used up all mine with terrible cutting mistakes. The copper foil I used was too wide and (I think) horsey. And lastly, once done it IMMEDIATELY fell to the floor AND BROKE! 😡

I am keeping it so that one day, when an important piece breaks I can will have this project to practice removing and replacing the broken pieces. But, right now I am ready to move onto something new and different!

Catching The Sun

This is my third cut glass project but instead of taking a full sheet of glass and cutting it up and re-soldering together, I cut each piece from a separate piece of glass and fitted them into one piece.

Not a fast craft which is FINE with me. I am really enjoying the whole process.

Second Project Done!

I am teaching myself this craft and it's definitely a challenge!!!

The first two "stained glass" pieces are in plain clear 3mm glass I got from our local hardware store to learn how to cut the glass, foil and to solder the pieces back together - it's definitely a learning process!

(This looks like it's been covered with a coat of patina but not yet. The actual piece still has the silver solder color.)

Thank you for visiting. Please come back soon!

Something New!!!

I have always been in love with stained glass art. During tennis districts last summer, my bestie picked out the best B&B for us to stay and it was FULL of stained glass. Before this month, I never considered I'd one day try it. Don't ask me how this craft's path suddenly became real to me... I have NO idea. One day I found myself in a stained glass shop buying supplies and getting very excited! 😃 Who would've ThUnKeD? Now it's a whole new world!

This is my first completed piece! Done in clear glass so that if I mess up I won't be to heartbroken. In this piece, I practiced cutting glass in a straight line, copper foiling and soldering.
