I showed you my fish bases the other day. Slowly I am working on building my fish. I can only do this for about an hour at a time because the fumes from the glue (just plain Elmers gel) starts to bother me. So I can get about 3 done in a session.
They are all built from scrap bits with some frit and stringers. As they melt in the kiln the surface will smooth out.
The colors are all based on whatever glass bits that I have and some of these are striker glass so I'm bound to get some big surprises in the end.
Some will turn out great and some will be rejects sent back to the scrap pile but I'm really hopeful for this one.
I don't need this many but I'm going to make enough to fill the kiln and hope for the best! There's so much glue in here that I'll have to vent the kiln and the basement really well. Hopefully I can get these fired this weekend and have some cute fishes to show you next week.
This weekend is sewing days with Country School and I'll get to go both days this time. I'm looking forward to working on the 4th of July quilt again.

Looking forward to the reveal. The triangular one is a handsome dude.

I already know I will love them - they're glass, so what's not to love? I'm anxious to see the blue one (in the kiln photo, lower right).
