I will grout tomorrow using black sanded grout. Then I will paint some areas of the grout with metallic paint and I may use some "glow in the dark" paint. All three pieces together measure seven feet x 2 feet. Stained glass, vintage costume jewelry, dichroic glass, pearls, amethyst.

AHHHHHHHHHHAAA - much better. I can see the details now. Man, that was a lot of work. Beautifully done, SILVA. Where w/you hang such a huuuuuge piece?

There's only one place to hang it, a dining room wall. Everywhere else in this house, the walls have lots of windows and doors. It is large, but slow, it is so light! It's done on 1/4 inch plywood screwed and glued onto the back of a stretched canvas, so the piece is actually hollow (yet I believe sturdy enough). Also I can hang the center section by itself and the two smaller end sections somewhere else. I haven't decided yet.
