Stained Glass Part 1
So people have been asking me to explain the steps in what it takes to make a stained glass piece, so to the best of my ability with a broken keyboard, I will try!
This particular piece was a commission requesting a rooster on a Harley. It took me a while to come up with an idea, but when I did, I drew it on graph paper, and then blew it up to the size I wanted using the copier. Notice that there is writing on each piece, that's the colors.
Sometimes you're given lemons, and you just have to decide that you'll make lemonaide. That's kind of my motto. See the positive, find the joy, and if you get a chance to laugh, grab it. Get creative and don't be afraid to make a fool of yourself. Learn to laugh at yourself 'cause if you can't, then you should get off the boat. Life is too hard to take it seriously all the time.
