Egypt--Blue Scarab

Well,  it was easier than I thought.  I made my lapis blue scarab.  I finally, after four or five years feel that I am really getting control of the glass!  Another glitch, though.  I wanted the glass beetle to be slightly larger than the metal ones.  The bronze clay is supposed to shrink by 20%, but it didn't, so, if I continue with the clay, I'll have to make another mold, just a bit smaller.  I think, today, I'll order the oval dap!
