Stained Glass Picture Frame

silvamaeNovember 15, 2009

Hi, guys! I am almost finished with the big glass totem, but I veered off course this week to do some picture frames that will be for sale in the spa where my daughter works. I didn't even take pictures of them and they're all gone now. I did each one in just one color with Swarovski crystal accents. However, this one I did with scrap glass of different thickness and all jumbled together with no regard for grout allowance or grout creep. Inspired by that web site I posted awhile back called "Ear of the Wind."

This is very pretty. What color is the grout. In the pic it looks silver. But it is very shiny.

The grout is pewter. Then I sponged over everything randomly with a natural sea sponge using metallic copper and bronze acrylic paint. Then I wiped off some of the pieces and left the paint on other pieces. Then, I varnished over all of it with Liquitex gloss varnish.

I really REALLY like the finish on this piece!!!! Thanks for the tip on the Liquitex. Looks like a product I may use. Hopefully it's available in Canada.
