Round Apple Blossom

Staying with the ” Tiny Tiffany ” theme this time I have gone for an Apple Blossom design, the background glass here is a Uroboros fracture glass code 10-55 Cobalt Blue, White and Green, this panel can be hung in a window or placed in a stand as shown here, The original panel size is 12 inches, ( 305 mm ) diameter.. The stand can be purchased here http://www.fireliteforms.com/category/39175338  The pattern for this piece can be purchased on etsy as a PDF download here https://www.etsy.com/ie/listing/606937658/round-apple-blossom-stained-glass-panel?ref=shop_home_feat_2 Original panel size is 12 inches, this can be scaled up using the printing instructions included in the PDF download.

I am now starting to foil the pieces, I do this by removing them one at a time and then replacing them as I proceed. I find this method works very well as you are able to make minor adjustments as you work across the panel. Here is the panel with all of the foiling complete and I will now proceed with the first soldering, once this has been completed the template can be removed and the first solder can be repeated on the reverse side it is important to be very careful with the panel during these stages. First soldering completed on both sides and the perimeter lead added, you can see the two pieces of black tape securing it to the panel until it is soldered into place.The final bead solder can now be added to finish the panel. Bead soldering completed and patina added and you can clearly see the difference the bead solder makes to the panel, gives it a nice finish.

One is never sure how a color scheme is going to pan out so I have started this panel by cutting a flower, some background and leaves.I have tried different colored centers for the flowers and have settled on Youghiogheny ” Laburnum ” glass. I may yet change these as the panel develops.  I have added more of the background glass now which is Youghiogheny stipple glass, code NO 57 ” Neodymium Pink with Peach Gold & Bubblegum “.  More background and more flowers and leaves now, flower glass is Youghiogheny code N367 ” Neodymium Pink, Dark Purple and Blue”. Leaves are also Youghiogheny code 1431 ” Lime and Emerald Green “ I have taken the background glass down the left hand side of the panel here and am thinking of introducing some fracture and streamer glass on the right hand side, and also some water effect along the bottom of the panel.
