A quick experiment …

I learned a new technique on Sunday, so – I had to drop everything to give it a try.  I painted enamel on glass separator (thinfire), embossed it, stuck it on a piece of painted clear glass (capped with clear) and fired that bugger.  It definitely has some possibilities. (Pre-fire and fired.)

It did remind me that Glassline paint alone on clear glass isn’t beautiful with light coming through it (the green area).  And, while the green is Glassline’s bubble paint … it doesn’t do the ‘bubble thing’ nearly as much as UGC’s bubble line …

We also tried the painted thinfire face up (paper punched fleur-de-lys), and just capped with glass (L=white, R=clear glass.  It has some interesting possibilities too, as it retains some of the paint while the paper fires out … Hmmm …

And, lastly – we capped a punched out painted fleur-de-lis between clear and colored glass … I still have this large piece of painted thinfire to play with – but want to ruminate on some ideas first.  Oh, and get ready for our show in T-12 days …
