Mosaic ------ well ------- it's partly junk

toomuchglass(5)October 12, 2010

This is a stretch to be on the garden junk forum .... but ...... I wanted to show you anyway . I found a pattern on the web that I fell in love with . It's of horses .I adore them .... so I tweaked it to my liking -- Used an old glass tabletop ---

( you know - the kind on the 3 - legged tables .Can that qualify as junk ? ) and made a mosaic out of it. I even took progress pics - my pals on another forum wanted to see me making it . Last weekend - DH was hunting & I was home alone. Alone with my stained glass and a Box of wine .....LOL ..... (nothing but class here ~ !)

Here's the pics ---

I cut out the horses and laid them on the glass ....

Added the grass & glued it all down ....

I started the backround ....

It's done except for the grout ......

Here it is in the window - all done.

Bad thing is ...I don't have any windows I can display it in . I just loved it ,so I had to do it .For the time being , it'll be in the attic . *sigh* Oh well ...

Hope you like it !

Wow! I'd find a window to put that in it's a work of art & should not be in an attic. Wish I had that talent & strength in my fingers to cut all those tiny pieces of glass. Really beautiful coloring & always love horses in a piece of art! Jan

I'm with Sunnyca! I'd oust something else and put it in the window! That is amazing!

I think I'd find a way to display that awesome piece of art in the GARDEN, or at least outside, on the deck! Wonderful job, Toomuch!!

OK you can make a wooden stand and place it anywhere. The stand is kind of like a napkin holder or taco.
