So, these are sheets of float glass and with Optul (float glass compatible colour) powder as the top layer. The bottom circle has been painted with a simple pattern, and layered with another similar circle, and Optul sifted over the top. Fired to a full fuse, and then with the top layer cut through. I’m really excited about the possibilities for this layering of techniques.
