    I did this one a few years ago, before my fingers lost their grip!

    Quote:Love your stained glass. I do glass when I have time, this was a commercial design that I did in the colors of my mare and her son. Wish they didn't have pinned ears, but the colors of glass were amazingly close to their actual color.

    LOL...just noticed this photo still has the tape on the edges, it must not have had the frame cemented yet.

    I do, haven't for a while. Hard to find the time. Now that winter is here, I want to start up again. It is something I really enjoy. Will have to search for pics.
    Nice panels!

    You might want to check with your local continuing education programs at the high schools. Many have stained glass classes. I'm pretty crafty, but I am glad that I took a 6 week class to get me started. It was nice to have someone show me the in and outs before I purchased all the equipment.

    I do stained glass! I'll have to take some pics of them.

    Tuff - your hen is very nice, i was looking for a decent pattern of a hen and couldn't find one, everything is roosters! Can I copy your hen? [​IMG]
