Slow the triptych you did for nativity is gorgeous. The purples do give the impression of night sky colors. Nicely done

I love that star & the colors - rich and night-like. What is the substrate?

Thanks, y'all. ANS: Substrate is a wooden triptych I found several yrs. ago at a thrift store for a $. Never had a subject until DD offered the little Nativity set, so it's a gift to DGD from both of us. 'twas hard to get a picture showing the stars/many colors of the glass. Colors in iri glass are hard to capture by camera. Looks much better in real life. Enjoyed making it.

I just had an idea, what about putting the figurines on a light up base, then it would reflect the background too!!!

OMGosh....SLOW....that is breath taking!! I LOVE it! What a fitting color too since purple represents royalty/nobility. That is just gorgeous! Your GD will LOVE it, I'm sure!!
