Glass Jewels


Suncatcher (13.5 x 13.5 cm). The central orange glass 'jewel' is fixed with milliput, in a roll at least 4mm thick. I want the effect of lots of colours so I am aiming to use as little as is practical of any material to make the frame. The two side panels have little bits of glass only held at the edges. This effect I really like. The glass looks like boiled sweets. It is a little naff, which appeals to me. The jewels are also nice and I need to find a way of fixing them- they are too fat to fit into the came. Holding them with milliput works but it means they are surrounded with a dark outline.
The 'jewel' althogh it looks lovely in the suncatcher, adds nothing to the projection.
