Orosi Window #2

emtnestJanuary 9, 2010

OK this one has certainly challenged my cutting skills...totally deflated any ego I might have had...it's so not perfect, but it is what it is...I am going by the seat of my pants on this one... not a plan from here, it will just have to evolve, so any suggestions are welcome. I was thinking rays going out from the circle. What do you think about a white dove? ..and the camera picked up the cross as brown, it's not brown at all, it's a pretty maroonish color. Oh fogot to add that this will be going to a church office in their window.

WHAT, pray tell, is your problem? This is as near perfect as it can BE, girlie. I don't know what upsets you about it, but I absolutely L.O.V.E. it. I'm thinking this one w/be your best one. White dove - oh, YES, and rays - oh, YES - perhaps in gold mirror???? Go, EMT, GO.

The rays are not glued down yet...do ya'll think they are ok full length? Or, should I make them shorter...I do plan to fill in with the different colors. Will wait for some responses before I glue them down...will put tg inside the circle.(the black marks are just my marker... )Nicethyme, thank you, I'm working on it still..

This was really a learning process for me. I know of some things I would do differently on the next one.

What color grout are you gonna use? Are you gonna paint the frame or leave as is? I really like this! I have an idea for a celtic style cross, done thr Rhianna way(wire mesh/concrete) for down in the backyard somewhere...

I'm thinking black grout.. and I think I need to seal the frame as little pieces of paint keep flaking off...might need to sand a little too...actually need to do it today...wish the rain would stop for awhile..

It's funny how the camera honed in on that turquoise piece with what looks like a glob of grout.. it doesn't look that way in real life...blends in..crazy
