1. Cut glass from larger piece to desired size.
2. Draw design on with marker. Reverse glass and trace over design. Turn glass over and wipe off first design.
3. With a tiny sifter and other tools, sprinkle the powdered glass (frit) into design areas like doing a paint-by-numbers painting.
4. Make a frame by cutting out red strips of glass from large sheet. Frame the edges of the large piece with the red strips.
5. Fuse in kiln at 1500 F degrees. This larger piece requires 24 hours for firing and cooling.
6. Glue gold leafing to back of glass and glue wooden backing. Place hooks on for hanging.
