Holy cow ! This has never happened before ! It's for a lady on another forum I visit . She's seen my work and fell in love. Her DH's birthday is in Oct .... and I'm making an exact mosaic of his Harley as her gift to him.
Here's what his motorcycle looks like ( gulp)

I'm sweating just thinking of doing the windshield. How do you mosaic "clear glass" ? I have some smoky white streaky glass, maybe I can paint the board alittle bit bluish grey . I don't know . I have to think !

yep ! You remembered ! In fact , I finally quoted her a fair price ,and she shocked me by offering to pay me way over what I stated ! I was so sure she would balk at the price . What a great surprise :)
