Currently Working On…

This piece is based on a tapestry I bought in Peru. I loved the colors and style. I cut out long strips of glass to mimic the thread.
For this piece I decided not to grout. By making this decision in the beginning, I could start with any kind of surface I wanted. I did not need to worry about prepping the surface with an adhesive and grout-friendly base. Instead I painted a 10×12 inch wood board with a gold acrylic paint and used clear sealant to adhere the glass.
And of course I had leftover scrap pieces that I felt compelled to use. I prepped the board with the same gold paint and drew a grid with a white pencil. Then I added pieces until It felt like I should stop. I am happy with the final look.
