Just finished what I think is a new and exciting idea- lit wall art. For the last 2 years I have been working on a framed piece that could either be displayed on an easel or hung. It is lit from behind with an LED panel with a 10,000 hour capability. It also has the capability to be controlled remotely and dimmed. Pictures to follow
I have been working on this waterfall for a month now trying to figure out how best to get the effect of falling water. The shimmer and movement. I tried different pieces of glass including clear ripple, glue chip and some really great green and blue art glass but none of them gave me the movement I wanted. I was cleaning my desk off after another frustrating day at it and came across extra fine glitter. One was light blue and the other holographic gold. I made some of the sections darker to add depth then painted the rest in very pale turquoise (a 1 part to 10 parts paint to medium mix) I usually use a 1 to 1 ratio. I took the glitter and randomly spread the glitter. I think it came out great.
Wow! Time flies and already I am behind on my blog. :/ Been spending a lot of time in my garden which is where I get inspiration for most of my decorative glass pieces. The yellow hollyhocks, pink snapdragons and bougainvillea are all vying for my attention. Still up in the air about which one will come first, not to mention the beautiful bearded iris that bloomed a few weeks ago. Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful weather and your gardens as much as I am.
