…Throwback Thursday #2…

Throwback Thursday

Couple of years ago I did an adult education stained glass course. Can’t remember if it was 6 or 8 weeks, but I did start and finish this panel.  I designed the template based on art deco rose (this is full size as you cut the glass on top of it) and each week did a bit.

It was so nice to spend a couple of hours out the house making when the hubby was out too and first daughter (second was still tbc) sleeping over at grandparents.  I would come home from work, eat and then go out.. it was like I had a life!!

The soldered joints are looking very silver.  I remember at the time we were suppose to scrub the whole lot with a brush to finish which I think I did but maybe not enough!!! I should really research this and pluck up the guts to solder on some rings so I can hang it.

Overall I am very proud of my efforts and original design.  When I have more time probably when both girls are at school I will dig the stuff out and do some more.. Something like a rainbow Tiffany lampshade.
