Aren't alpacas cute? My husband recently bought me some alpaca wool socks and I was looking at the vendor's business card with all these sweet alpaca faces on it, and I thought I'd try an alpaca portrait. Enjoy!











I have a frame for it, just haven't painted it yet.

You're right, HSG, that is fantastic!  As a non-glass person, how the heck is this made?  Is it painted?

I sifted powder frit onto the glass and used a stylus to draw in it. Later I added the eyes with Glassline paint.

Thanks!
