Butter cat inspired me so much !!
Uh oh, Nice ..... you sparked a fire in me ~~ or ~~ I say Buttercat/AKA Butthead did !! LOL
I've never done a mosaic with the all the shadows like you're making .I usually use the swirls of color in the glass to highlight or shade. Seeing how you're doing it made me want to try one ! (It'll be different - I promise ! ) Can I ask a few questions ?
**Well Yeah - that was dumb - I could ask questions till I'm blue in the face*** The question is , will you help me ? LOL
1) Do you just cut a bunch of random shapes with different shades of color & lay them out & pick which one fits the best - or do you plan your cuts ?
2) Do you shake your peices to knock the sharp edges off ? When my friend makes mosaics , she runs the edges of each piece over a stone before she glues it. I suppose it equals out time-wise.
3) Last One !!!! You DO Grout ,don't you ? ( Your pieces fit so snug - I just had to ask ! )

The horse on the right.I'm a city girl with an unreal love for horse -- especially Clydesdales. Most of my glass stuff is horses ;)
Well -- there is my huge project . It's about 24" high x 10" wide. If there's any advice you can give , I'll be forever grateful !!!
