Ever since I bought a gorgeous fused glass pendant off of etsy, I've been telling my boyfriend that I want to do glass fusing and get a kiln because I think the craft is so beautiful and well....great! And he has suggested that perhaps I try the craft to see if it's something that I would want to do all the time and actually like to do before we drop our tax returns on a very expensive and very large crafting tool such as a kiln. Cheesy I think that's a pretty good point. So we found a local place that does painting of pre-made ceramics that also happens to teach and have space for glass fusing and throwing pottery with wet clay. Sweet, right? The best part is there is no studio fee if you're doing glass, you jut pay for the base piece of glass that you're building your design on and then pay a fee for the second run through the kiln if you want your piece slumped. So the other day we picked up the very first glass piece I've done! I didn't want to glue a bail to the back for hanging on the wall, because I was really scared of it falling off the wall and shattering. So we bought a frame in horde colors at Target, I chose a nice background from my scrapbooking stash and I glued the piece onto the glass frame. Now it has a place of honor at my desk so I can show my pride while I game! Cheesy

I used a sharpie to draw the horde symbol on the glass, then outlined it with white frit. Then I filled it in, loose mosaic style with pieces of opaque red glass and then cut opaque white out to draw on with the little enamel stuff that the name escapes me now.

It was crazy fun to do, too! The best part was that one of the ladies in the shop recognized the symbol while I was working on it. Warcraft players unite!
