Woot!



I've been waiting patiently (or not!) all week for my decal paper to arrive. It finally showed up on Friday, so I was able to experiment with a new fused glass technique yesterday. I only did two pieces, though, because I needed to test that my laser printer would work. Some laser toners don't have enough iron oxide in them for the decal image to adhere to the glass. Looks like mine will work. Woot!

I'm very pleased with the results; I think they turned out great. Whatcha think?

Now I'm on the hunt for some unique and creative images. Any ideas? They must be black and white; line drawings or silhouettes would work great. I'd love to feature some original artwork...

I always peruse the digital scrapbooking sites for fun brushes and embellishments. Then send to photoshop and change into a black and white. Your decal work is great. Nice job
