With I was experimenting with using stained glass windows and water effects (even though you can’t see the water because of the angle). I used those little plastic beads that you have to melt. I don’t like them. It hardens too fast, leaves little air-bubbles and dries a little yellowish. Oh well. The stained glass windows did turn out good though; i used a special hobby paint that allows you to paint on a glass-like surface and it dries just like stained glass.Another first was my use of the 1.5″ flagstone floor tiles. These are an integral part of the “big” project I plan to make (more on this later). And the final first was my use of cardboard for a base. Don’t do it. It warps… As you can probably tell from the picture; everything is crooked. Oh wait – there was another first. This was a painting technique. Around the sconce, you’ll notice that the light from the flame is reflecting on the wall; it looks better in person. I’m still working on this technique, but it shows great promise.
