Usually once I make fused glass plant stakes they’re casted or lower design items. Listed here are some examples of a few of my different fused glass plant stakes. They’re all enjoyable to make, I particularly like utilizing knives because the stake portion.
However just lately I noticed a video on fused glass plant stakes that have been a bit extra easy but a number of enjoyable. They form of jogged my memory of my fused glass stirrers. Talking of stirrers, listed here are a couple of of my new stirrers. All however the sunflower are 90 COE, the sunflower is 96 COE.
So I made a decision to make a few plant stakes within the new approach. It’s humorous I can by no means make simply one among something. I made 2 batches of plant stakes. This primary group are 96 COE (coefficient of enlargement). A lot of selection on the 96 COE stakes together with frit, dots, millefiori, iridized glass, vitrigraph, ladybugs, butterflies, and so on. Aren’t they nice?
The second group is 90 COE. I do know you’re most likely questioning what’s the distinction. It simply means I used completely different glass. Why, as a result of I’ve vitrigraph, frit, dots (together with dichroic), murrine (see the butterfly, woman bug, bee, and so on.), millefiori (middle of the yellow, left image), and so on., within the completely different glass COE of glass and I wished to make a range stakes. An important half is that if I break one I’ll know what kind it’s by these photos, as a result of 90 and 96 COE glass shouldn’t be suitable.
