break & cut glass to make mosaic pictures
DIYnetwork showed a way to make a sliding stained glass picture frame to block a window. The wooden frame surrounded a piece of plexiglass to secure it then they put different types of glass on top to display a beautiful design. You can recycle and break and cut old glass, colored glass, bottles, marbles, sea glass, colored aquarium glass rocks, etc. After the design was finished it was then grouted. Check out their idea: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/hi_bedrooms/article/0,2037,DIY_13904_4832535,00.html.
One question I have is, what type of cutter do you use? Would you need to have a special number bottle cutter and separate glass cutter? Would it be easier to make a bottle cutting jig to support your bottles?
Now it's time to start collecting glass, maybe the recycle dump would be a great place to start!
btw this was posted in Trash to Treasure & I was told to post it here instead - didn't know there was a Stained Glass & Mosaic forum.
