I have joined a group on Facebook, Stained Glass Addicts. The people on there are extremely welcoming, supportive and friendly. I asked for some advice on flux and soldering and cleaning and patina. Got a tone of advice. Some of which I used as I finished up this piece.
A friend had posted a lovely photograph on her timeline on FB. And I do love those loti. I created a pattern and did the piece. It turned out well, though I have mixed feelings about it, lol. it isn’t exactly what I had hoped for. it is still great, but… it’s funny how the last several pieces have been such a mixed bag. I was very excited about the small dragonfly piece, and did the poppies as a throwaway kinda thing. I ended up really liking the poppies, but not the dragonfly so much. fickle wench, I guess.
