The next stage....
...is to paint each piece of glass by hand, using traditional kiln-fired glass paint. I like to get a production line going when I'm doing painting, especially for repetitive designs. And then in the kiln they go for a good roasting - about 2 hours at gas mark 20 (up to 650 degrees Celsius) should do it, then leave to cool down in their own time.
Right must dash, there is much to do. We are going camping tomorrow - yippeee! Bit of a blow that our lovely VW campervan is still having its makeover (major rust surgery) so we're under canvas instead.
Hope y'all have good weekends and the sun ain't no stranger.
