Using random or found glass... Questions
Once I read a thread here where the woman said that her little daughter was bringing home glass that she found in parking lots to her mom for mosaic. I need glass for a GOG project but don't have anywshere near enough then I realized I have some nice blue bottles, and also "bottle green" ones that will work just fine. I broke them up and am tumbling the glass in the tumbler Calamity Jane gave me a few years ago. The blue almost disintegrated into tiny pieces, but fortunately I had a few pieces of blue and purple gallery glass to mix in from my scrap box.
Does any one break up bottles and use glass that they find lying around the town? Any advice?
What about the tiny tiny pieces and glass "dust" that is left over? Can I do any thing with that?
PS I am almost done my mosaic plant stand. Hope to post a pic in about a week (ungrouted).
