New stained glass mirrors!

After mulling it over for a while, I went ahead and made a few new mirrors. I had this great avocado green glass that was left over from one of my business card holders so I used it to create another "retro" office mirror. I used one of my brother's prints as a background ( see for more of his work). The picture on the right shows another small mirror with one of my brother's paintings as a background. For this mirror I experimented with a new tool (dapping block and punch set) that makes perfect little domes from copper sheeting. I used the dome for the center of the flower. I like the way it turned out.
