I love Sundays

Lazy days-y Sundays… Headed up into the mountain last night to be part of a stargazing group. Clouds were rolling in, and after watching a gorgeous sunset, the event was deemed a bust. I was not sad however. I came home and finished up some glass.

seahorse and kelp

A little 8.5×11 piece for a friend’s dads’ birthday. Very happy with the texture of the kelp. Old English Muffle glass is the bomb.

Have been trying some new polishing and patina techniques. I am very happy with them. I have been avoiding copper patina because it has been turning out so jacked up and ugly. Read a post on SGA a couple days ago that said to polish the solder first, then do the patina (wiping it up as you go along) then polish again. Tried it, and the result was the most gorgeous, shiny copper patina I have EVER had. love it. Eager to try it with the black.

waiting for the sun to get a little higher in the sky, for better illumination for this piece. This one is for sale, and measures 10×15. The two clear pieces, at the bottom, are bevels.

Loving these smalls. Off to begin 2 more pieces… have a wonderful Sunday.
