PHEW.... IT WORKED..AND NOTHING BROKE!





















Here they are boys and girls.. What do you think? I am really going to have to figure out how to display them. I dribbled some glass paint on this one to see what would happen..I sort of like it even though I used 3 colors and ended up with only one! All the shards fused together and the edges rounded so they are nice and smooth. This one has 3 different levels of glass on it . It is about 12 inches tall.

The next two shots are of the second boat which I did not paint . Here goes...........



These were a lot of fun to do and I still have a lot more broken glass . I aim to try doing a cat next time but will probably consider this as my hobby ...As much as I am enjoying something different, I don't think I'll give up my paint brush for long!


But then again, it is such fun!

They are gorgeous, I love them, extremely unique and that's very hard to find in the art world!

They turned out great, Doris!! Are you going to hang them or put them on some sort of base? Driftwood would look nice as a base.

Sail on!
It´s an interesting idea you had.

Thanks everybody, I sort of like them too, but to answer Lisa's question, I am still looking for a display method, I agree, Lisa, that driftwood seems a good idea and am thinking in that direction. The clear one tends to get lost with all the pattern behind it. Maybe I should try black!
