Project by Allyson Lipkin from Austin, Texas.
Allyson has her hands in many pots, from teaching life skills to the blind, to playing drums in a band, to creating stained glass artwork. In this project, the light-hearted Allyson, who is not afraid to laugh at her mistakes, makes a vibrant stained-glass standing mirror.
Materials and Tools:
flux and brush
1/4" plate mirror
1. Cut your design/pattern out of stock paper and trace onto glass. Cut glass pieces and mirror to match pattern.
2. Grind glass pieces and mirror to remove sharp edges and clean pieces. Wrap each piece and mirror in copper foil.
This decorative mirror mixes stained glass, mosaic and metalwork techniques and is sure to be a conversation piece.
