Well a few bandages and 13 hours later we all managed to finish our mosaic glass pieces yesterday. Left here at 7:30 and got home at 8:40 and that would be a.m. to p.m.! But it was SOOOOO worth it. Donna and Karen joined Sandi, Diane and I yesterday. They had both already done the class but were so hooked they decided to do second pieces. And the next workshop is already arranged for September! So here are a few pictures of class in action and finished pieces:

Diane hard at work! Look Up Di!!!!

Sandi and Cindy consultingGlueing down the glass!

Donna gun in hand!

Ahhhh the dirty part – grouting!

Karen’s piece ungrouted.

Diane’s piece ungrouted.

Diane’s piece grouted – WHAT a difference the grouting made – they just popped after they were cleaned up.

Sandi’s piece grouted.

My piece grouted –  now Cindy let Sandi and I polish and polish and polish – half an hour later we were still polishing – arms were getting reallllly sore and Cindy laughed and told us we could have stopped 20 minutes earlier – but hmmm did look reallllly good and shiny!

Donna’s piece – grouted – she started and finished this piece YESTERDAY. As did Karen (well we left Karen with Cindy and hmmm not sure if she slept over!!!) All in all a fun fun day – Cindy you are amazing (well so were the rest of us but we should try to be humble!)

  7. Wow, Loretta….are you teaching this as well????

  8. Love these! I have lots of glass scraps from stained glass work and have done a little bit of mosaic work. I just recently acquired an old wooden pane window. Have been looking for inspiration to put it to use. I’d LOVE to give this a try!
    This is probably one of those stupid questions, but do you work over top of the window glass or remove it?

    I’m info crafts, and I even collecter 5 old windows and wanted to do something similar. What glue are you using and what type or grout ?
