Crash Glass

Crash Glass Added

Layout without Crash Glass
This Saturday I took a Crash Glass Class at Harmony Stained Glass www.harmonystainedglass.com/  
The  first time I saw an example of crash glass I knew I had to learn how to do this.  I happened to be at Harmony Stained Glass Shop looking for a certain piece of glass  when I saw the sign-up sheet.  I knew it was a popular class and fills up quickly, so before I left the store I signed up. 
The class was taught by Lisa Morales who was a great teacher with lots of patience and understanding.  She had knowledge of the glass, layout and color.  You can see some of her work in her etsy shop at www.apinchofwonderful.estsy.com  I have not added the grout as Lisa is ordering a certain grout color that she suggested would look good with my project.  Meanwhile I need to paint the back and sides of the board and add something to hang it with.  After it is grouted, I have some trinkets to add to the top of my piece.  Once my project is completed, I will post the final picture.
