I used a new method for weaving glass--weaving bars. They're pretty cool and result in an actual weave. Quite different than the way I'm used to doing it. Enjoy!

Very nice design, love the look you've achieved with this technique. Did you use Glassline for the details, or some other medium?  I find Glassline a bit finicky to work with so I purchased some other "pens" from Slumpy's.  Not loving those either.

I used powder frit mixed with Liquid Stringer Medium and I applied it with little squirt bottles like you use for decorating a cake. It was fun and if you get the mix right, not too wet, it stays really well.

I've never tried the liquid stringer - your piece is so nice, I may just have to give that a tray!  Thanks for the info!
