Next it was time to make the leaves. Here I decided to add some color, so I used transparent green and some opaque yellow. Then I made a tree topper onto which I put the leaves:
I also learned in class of a very inexpensive, low-tech way to give borosilicate glass a frosted finish. Much cheaper than a sandblaster, and am considering frosting the trunk of the tree and leaving the leaves shiny.
What do you think?
Thank you again, Robert, for a fabulous class and all of your help!
