Well, what we've all been anxiously been awaiting FINALLY arrived last week. Jiminy, I had no idea it would take so long. What am I talking about?? The fruits of our glass-blowing labor - the PAPERWEIGHTS. Everyone that participated has been dying to see them, and still 2 weeks later, we are still talking about the fun. :)
Seriously, several people have asked about it. I really didn't forget - but we didn't get them until Thursday this week. I must say, I am pretty happy with the result. Mine is a bit bluer than I wanted it to be and the lime green I picked came out more yellow but... it is cool.
Here is a pic of all of our glass:
Cool no? Mine is on the end, 2nd row - marked Stacy. Darker than I planned but its ok. I really like Donna's (2nd on left, 2nd row). Her's had this really cool swirl pattern noone else seemed to master. I am not sure how she did it. And Tracy's on the top had a really nice overall coverage. We have no idea how that happened either. lol
What do you think?
Here's a close up of mine so you can admire my genius. HA You see the silvery blue edges? That is from the torching. For some reason my paperweight had a thicker layer of clear glass so it looks like the colored part is kind of floating in there. I'm sure it has nothing to do with my rolling skills. LOL
Poor guy, I think he had to do a lot of reshaping to mine. It still is not perfectly round on the inside. lol Oh well, I may have NO artistic talent but I sure did enjoy the process.
