11  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Saving a project - an experiment that failed on: February 16, 2014 07:41:19 PM
I made some mica sheets with Flexi glass and used an electric die cutter to cut out these images

I then made a background from "tops and tails" and fired it face down to make a flatter surface to a tack fuse.

After capping it, I fired it to a full fuse after adding my images.

It did not work: I think the mica was too thin and once the binder burned off, as I assume it does, the thinnest areas virtually disappeared. So I set about saving it. I had some steel blue and cut out the same images in the glass and this is the result after I tack fused.

This one has a decal on it inspired by the project in the Delphi glass ebook.

From the top: These are individually cut piano notes. The space between each one also has a cut piece (I am now using stringers for the most recent ones that I have made). Below the musical notes and text says: Never be flat, sometimes be sharp, always be natural

Middle one: these are beach huts that are a common site on UK beaches - they are usually owned and, sometimes, rented. They are used for people who want a base to stay for the day (often they don't have any electricity) on the beach.

Bottom one: This was inspired by an idea in the Delphi glass Holiday e-book. A place in the UK does custom printing for ceramics and I ordered a sheet with many different images on including this one.

15  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / A story of 10 penguins on: November 05, 2013 12:06:05 PM
A while ago I was asked to make a large Penguin Suncatcher for auction to support the running costs of an online live trivia game site and 10 smaller ones as fixed price items. So, we borrowed some time at our local glass shop and cut out the penguins. I made the large one which was duly auctioned and just two of the smaller ones as take up seemed to be very slow. Actually, none of the smaller ones were sold at all! So I was left with them to use in some way myself: the two that I had already made were trimmed from the suncatchers (which had the site name on it) and became fridge magnets; three more became "The Three Wise Penguins" and the last five went into "Beware of Penguins Bearing Gifts".

This has been made for the same person as the other Maldon picture tile. Her mother's name is Dawn (hence the name of the boat) and she was a work colleague of mine before she retired and moved to Maldon.

Maldon is famous for its Maldon Sea Salt and the barges like this one. The scene of the town is a decal I made and fired into the glass and the barge is tack fused onto the tile.
