Well then you definitely photographed it well, because it only looks a tinsy bit off in that one spot. And the great thing about soldering is that you can always go back and change it later, so it's no sweat if it's off Smiley

Oh man, that's hilarious!

You should make a lantern still, and you should make it a Tardis with flat sheet glass, so the reflected blue light on the wall will look like the perfect shilouette of the Tardis Smiley

Onyxnox: Thank you, and I applied the india ink with a little paint brush that I had lying around. He'll need a coat or two more so he can have an even consistency. India ink is always super fun with glass, especially if you rub/paint it into the little crevices, then wipe away the ink on the main surface.

Chainmaille: Thank you!

Hi all!

I just thought I'd share a little penguin I made. My friend and I were competing with a theme of something lighthearted (but related) that you would donate to an art auction for global warming (or other such issues). I wanted to enamel on the black, but I'm not experienced enough with it yet. It was really interesting to attempt initial photographs of it.

You can check out more photos of it, and of my friend's polar bear in a life jacket over on our blog;

Might I suggest ramping up the heat a little bit more next time? That or fusing first, than slumping in a second cycle. I think if the strips were more consistently even, then that curve in the glass would stand out beautifully!

That geode is absolutely gorgeous. What a great use, much better than letting a rock sit on your windowsill.

Gosh, I can't imagine sitting there and stringing all those beads, you must have the patience of a saint!

The solder is just a wee bit thick around that center piece of hair, but for a first try it's generally pretty even!

Oh this is perfect! For my and my friend's next art competition she asked to do a Fall theme!

Two competitions for the work of one, awesome.

Wonderful! Thank you very much!

I ended up finding many wonderful sites last night! Including a lady who pushed ruhbarb leaves into cement and silicone to make wonderful fountains! It was such a simple process (compared to kiln casting glass) that I was completely baffled.

I also found out about magic foam, which seems like it will be very useful in this venture of mine!
