    Way cool!!! You’d have my vote for sure – the multi-strand look compliments your fairy perfectly! I’m so impressed with your fused glass too – I didn’t know you could do an image with that! Good luck!!

    Thanks, Lori! :D The image is an enamel decal – after you set in on the fused piece, you fire it again at a lower temp to burn off the backing and fuse the enamel into the glass. Took me many tries to finally get it – my kiln doesn’t have an accurate readout, and I have frazzled many a decal before I finally got them down!
