Hey there! Smiley
This week I decided that I wanted to make more fused glass pendants with trees painted on them.  I made some designs first, on paper, and then started cutting the right glass.
I fused the glass today and yesterday, and then painted the tree on by hand.
I hope you guys like it Smiley

I made one more but the pictures of it will come later on.

Pretty cool looking pendants. Smiley How do you keep the painted tree on the glass though?

These are so pretty. I like the way the black stands out against the colored background.
I'm also wondering how you stop the paint from chipping?

Thanks for the replies  Cheesy

The paint does not chip of because its a good porcelain paint, it should stay strong for a pretty long time if the product does what it promises. It should be dishwasher resistant etc, although I would not put it in a dishwasher anyway because sometimes glass becomes dull in a dishwasher. But still, for the painted on trees that should be enough certainty right?

Here is another one:

Today I hope to finish another very small one, when it is finished it should look like a leaf with two different colored sides. But I am not sure yet if it will work out Smiley I hope!
And I was thinking that maybe a pendant with a tree and sky colors in the background would be cute?  And another one with a night color and painted on stars?

Oh, I was hoping the 3rd one would be autumn colors and it is. So pretty!
I think one with stars sounds beautiful. Maybe one with deep blues and snowflakes?
