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.

The layering gives it nice depth. Maybe you could use the technique to also put the place names into the pieces. Smiley

Great idea - I am sure that I can find a small space on future pieces to do this - thanks

Thank you. I had never done any glass fusing before January of this year and bought my kiln in May. Having taken early retirement after spending over 30 years teaching Maths to 11 - 16 year olds, I have discovered that I can be creative!!!
