I have been slowly making progress on my stained glass piece while I have been working on other glass projects. There are many small, irregular shapes that I must cut and fit together before I can start to sauder the pieces together.
It has been exciting to see the components fit together and so far I have been happy with my color choices.
To adjust the pieces I have to continuously compare the glass shapes to their corresponding paper shapes. I have also been arranging them on the master drawing to ensure they fit together properly.
As I get more pieces to fit together, I continue to add more pieces so I can adjust them simultaneously. I don’t want to start connecting pieces too soon and then run into problems with adjustment later. So for now, I am only grinding pieces and trying to keep them as accurate to my drawing as possible.
So that’s my progress so far! I still have a long way to go but I will continue to post updates.
