Create Stained Glass Waterfowl Sculptures
Flat panels aren’t the only thing you can make with stained glass. This course will cover creating flat, stained glass pieces and mounting them on driftwood to create a breathtaking sculpture. We’ll be making flat stained glass birds (a heron, stilt, and killdeer) as well as cattails and grasses using fused glass and copper foil. A tiny dragonfly will be the final touch. Learn how to work with foil overlays, how to make the birds’ legs, and how to add painted details for the birds’ eyes and dragonfly wings. And finally, how to mount it all on a driftwood log. Any combination of the elements will make beautiful sculpture. Join Cheryl as she guides us through this journey through nature!
