The shadows are just as important as the light.

Okay, I'm SO in love with these! Thanks to everyone who has posted instructions on how to crack glass marbles in the oven. My girls and I did this today. We had regular marbles but we also tried the glass flat marbles (Stones? What are they called?) you can buy for cheap at Wal-Mart. I like them better than the marbles.

So pretty!!  I don't know what I'll do with them yet. They're sitting in a bowl on my desk and I can't stop picking them up and turning them in the light. If I were going to keep them all together, I'd make some green flat stones to match the marbles better, but I like the blue.

Flat clear and blue:



Marbles:



Large flat w/ab finish:



All together:



I'm going to do a writeup on my blog of the actual process which included some mishaps. Hey, did you know they get HOT and they'll burn your rug if dropped?  Yeah.

Thanks for looking!  I'd love to have your comments.   Smiley
