Hand Painted Fused Glass Pendants - PPF
I've been having fun painting these precious pendants. Its time-consuming work, but so fascinating to create them. I take scrap glass and break it into small pieces with pliers, paint on it, place a piece of clear glass on top, then fire it in the kiln to approx 1450 degrees.
I am new to using the Glassline Paints, and so it is challenging. As I work, the paint dries to a chalky white, making it difficult to see the design and color. I never know what they will look like until I open the kiln the next morning...kind of like a treasure chest! =)
You'll notice that I've been making lots of kitty faces, and that's because I support our local cat rescue organization. For each fused glass pendant I sell, I donate $5.00 to Gulf Shore Animal Leage of Manatee County, Florida. When you purchase these items, you are contributing to their worthy cause.
I'm in the process of listing these cuties for sale, and hope to have them all listed very soon... Kathryn
