Today I spent 3 hours cutting 27 stained glass circles for my 2nd stained glass circles project. I completed my first circles project in September:
I started this afternoon by cutting blue circles because I want my 2nd project to be way bluer than my first. Then I moved on to purples, pinks, raspberries, & clear bubble glass:
Here’s the aftermath of “grozing” the clear bubble glass circles – yikes:
Working with glass is always messy & a bit dangerous! After I was done cutting, grinding, & washing each piece I laid them out on the kitchen table to dry overnight. Tomorrow I’m hoping to get the edges copper foiled:
When I was almost done cutting circles I noticed a beautiful sunset out the girl cave window:
After 3 hours of cutting & grinding glass my fingers are numb and a bit banged up, but it was worth it. I wanted to get all the cutting done today so I can move on to foiling and soldering tomorrow. I probably made way too many circles but better to have too many than not enough 🙂 If I do have extras I’ll use them for another project.
