Miniature landscapes

I have been exploring David Alcala's glass tapestry technique, and attempting to make miniature landscapes. Having a lot of fun with it! I just thought I would share a couple from a batch that just came out of the kiln. There really is a lot of depth that is more apparent in person than in the pictu...

Re: Casting bronze with glass

Here is a link to another glass artist who I have noticed uses bronze clay in her lovely work. http://sillydogartglass.typepad.com/silly-dog-art-glass/pendant/ I wondered if she uses some kind of epoxy but haven't had time to investigate it further. I have some bronze clay waiting for just the right...

Sounds like you are heading in exciting directions! Congratulations on the upcoming exhibition, Haydo. Wish I could attend! Really...

Re: Custom decals

Great idea Dana. I'll check out that book...I have had a lot of fun working small as well with jewelry decals, and thought it would be cool to try something larger.

Custom decals

I just found this interesting website http://www.inplainsightart.com/files/decals-info.html for ordering customized waterslide decals for glass and wonder if anyone has had experience working with these folks. Does the pricing look reasonable or have you found other more cost effective sources you w...

Tony, that helps immensely. The way you explained it has really helped me begin to visualize where things went wrong. THANK YOU! Making my way through Graham's book I have also discovered that heat soaking for 20 minutes every 250 degrees up to 1000 would have been beneficial as well. Well, my wall ...
