I'm making a Pink Elephant from a gift that my friends gave me(they knew/expected me to mosaic it)Yup real friends KNOW what you want!!! heh heh! Soooo, Bad Jane....went to get a bit more pink glass for said elephant, at the stained glass store....$80 later!!!! 2 pcs of glass!!! Maybe 6ft? Bad Jane!!! I coulda made do with what I had or bought a foot of glass...but noooooo, I gotta start snooping around.....actually I did behave and not buy the neat purple glass they had that was a kind I don't have yet..What do you call an elephant crossed with a rhino?

I got to see this in person and the glass Jane chose is just beautiful. It's going to look wonderful when she's done all her magic.

DONE!!! I decided to not mosaic the pink body, and this Calamity is the result! I decided to just grout the body, but I wanted to try adding pink paint to the grout(grey), and in doing so, the grout became very soupy(I was trying to mix red and white paint). Then as I was wiping off the grout, it just came off the unmosaiced parts...sorta....so it is like a textured finish on the body and I kinda like it! It is sorta shabby chic! lol! Pink and grey undertones.
Pics just don't do justice to how pretty this turned out...can't seem to get a good pic of the purple mirror and purple irridescent glass.

I think he has turned out really wonderful!

... But I don't think I could have stopped myself from using that amazing pink glass... do you have something else planned for it?

RE: Pink Elephant!

Beautiful job, CALAM. I like it just like it is. I'm gonna try to get into just mosaicing parts of things. Riana worked on me w/that when I mosaiced her Lady w/the Hat in PV.
