Orosi Window #2

OK this one has certainly challenged my cutting skills...totally deflated any ego I might have had...it's so not perfect, but it is what it is...I am going by the seat of my pants on this one... not a plan from here, it will just have to evolve, so any suggestions are welcome. I was thinking rays going out from the circle. What do you think about a white dove? ..and the camera picked up the cross as brown, it's not brown at all, it's a pretty maroonish color. Oh fogot to add that this will be going to a church office in their window.

WHAT, pray tell, is your problem? This is as near perfect as it can BE, girlie. I don't know what upsets you about it, but I absolutely L.O.V.E. it. I'm thinking this one w/be your best one. White dove - oh, YES, and rays - oh, YES - perhaps in gold mirror???? Go, EMT, GO.

The rays are not glued down yet...do ya'll think they are ok full length? Or, should I make them shorter...I do plan to fill in with the different colors. Will wait for some responses before I glue them down...will put tg inside the circle.(the black marks are just my marker... )Nicethyme, thank you, I'm working on it still..

What color grout are you gonna use? Are you gonna paint the frame or leave as is? I really like this! I have an idea for a celtic style cross, done thr Rhianna way(wire mesh/concrete) for down in the backyard somewhere...


 o
RE: Orosi Window #2

I'm thinking black grout.. and I think I need to seal the frame as little pieces of paint keep flaking off...might need to sand a little too...actually need to do it today...wish the rain would stop for awhile..

RE: Orosi Window #2

It is finished... I'm happy with how it turned out...

RE: Orosi Window #2

It's funny how the camera honed in on that turquoise piece with what looks like a glob of grout.. it doesn't look that way in real life...blends in..crazy

RE: Orosi Window #2
