2 Projects totally finished

toomuchglassMarch 4, 2012

The first is my bird mosaic. The frame was a dull brown -- now I painted it in 2 shades of blue with a teeny bit of sponged on gold.

Finally -- my newest clydesdale . I put 2 coats of resin over it , painted the frame black and added gold bling.

I thought I'd never finish this !

They are beautiful! I have a question though - why did you put resin on the clydesdale? Does it give it some wonderful effect or depth or what?
Thanks!

ditto re the resin question: why? and how?
Beautiful work and the frames really add to the whole piece.

I added the resin to make the grout much richer looking and to keep the gold beads from turning dull. It just gave the whole thing depth. I love using resin , but it's gotten so expensive.

Your work is so outstandingly beautiful, TOOMUCH. How long have you been mosaicing w/stained glass? This just blows me away - the shading, andamento, perspective, highlights, tess used, details on the harness etc, right down to the details on the frame. You're a real pro.

Sorry Bon - I uploaded them again to photobucket .Now you can see !

Slow --- I made 4 mosaics before joining this forum ! I got so inspired here . I've worked with stained glass for about 15 years , so I know about shading , highlighting , the grain of the glass,etc . Serious mosaicing was new to me. I love experimenting !

I'm also a painter -- that's how I know about perspective.
