This is my first post! Grin

So, this is a project I did in school for my Glass Design class a year ago.
This took about 5-6 hours of work, not counting the hours it took for the grout to dry.

All of the tiles (not counting the white background) were personally cut by me. That's 197 tiles I had to cut. The white ones were store-bought.

The frame is just a board with "walls" nailed on.


Chillin' on the couch. Cool


Close up!

I'm sorry the pictures are so blurry. I'm still getting used to my camera.

By the way, I did this when I was 13, so I know it's not perfect. Tongue Advice would be highly appreciated.

I love Kirby!  Seeing this made me smile.  Smiley

Unfortunately, I have never done any glass crafts so I don't have any advice to give. Tongue

Well, you did a good job even if you did have to personally cut out most of the squares. Cheesy

The only advice I can think of is try a dark frame around it rather than the light colored one.

One of these days I want to do some mosaic also, but I keep thinking of cutting all the glass to do it, which is why I keep putting off trying one. So I know that cutting out all those squares was a lot of work for you. I hopeyou got a good grade on it.
