Victorian Stained Glass - Hand-Painted Floral Scrolls
I've just posted off this pair of ornate floral scrolls to Delia for a repair she's doing on a very grand Victorian entrance in South East London. I took a few Instagram snaps so you can see how I've built up the layers - 3 firings in all (trace line, shading and silver stain).
These were very enjoyable to paint - loose and free-flowing with nice little flicks of the brush to get the twiddly tendrils just right.
The only problem was that each piece of glass was quite long - I had to order a couple of new kiln shelves to fit them on!
