My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
Then I discovered a product called Crystal Craze. It was a thin paint for glass that crystallized as it dried. I removed one panel at a time and used liquid lead to outline a pattern on each one. The design was then filled in with various colors of Crystal Craze. It takes a fair amount of pressure to squeeze liquid lead from a tube so it is not something you work at for long periods of time. The glass also has to be squeaky clean or the lead will not form a bond and the paint will seep under the lead to the ajoining section. What I'm pointing out here is that this took some time to complete.
