The fish look black but are actually multi-colored mylar which changes with the light. I have partially mirrored the glass so it has a reflective quality and plan to layer it on to something else... don't know what yet. Here's the second one: This seems like a pretty dumb question for me to ask but I've looked at it too long today and need fresh eyes.
BTW, in case anyone else is trying to carve up glass, I have discovered an absolutely wonderful tool called a 'running pliers' that will snap off that edge of glass that you've scored with no trouble at all and no cut fingers! They are available at stained glass stores. I can't tell you how many pieces of broken glass I have left all over the country while trying to frame my paintings. If only this marvelous tool had not been kept secret during my long painting and framing career!
Any red net (red neck?) advise you can leave will be greatly appreciated.. hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
