South Austin Music Sign WIP

Here's what I'm currently working on. All black and white stained glass. I'm waiting on black 'mini' marbles that I ordered from Arctic Girl Mosaics for the black dots on the guitar. I nipped the glass with wheeled nippers except for the straight edges that I cut with a Toyo pistol grip glass cutter and the curved pieces around the edge of the guitar. I ground all the edges with a kitchen sharpener. I will probably have to cut out the fingers of the 'M' with my Taurus ring saw. I will use both black and white grout. The Wedi will be bolted to the original sign.

I think the andamento, sort of crazy paving you are using is really adding interest and says this is unique work

Thank you, nicethyme. My plan is to crazy-pave all the white, and then sort of do the black background in gentle horizontal waves, trying to indicate music. We'll see; I think it will work.

Thanks, Becky. I have to say, the design isn't mine. The sign was painted long ago on wood and was looking shabby. The owner is familiar with my mosaic work and asked me to mosaic the sign, keeping the same colors and design. I believe the original design was by an artist named Lucky LaRue.
