Roses are red...

I polished, packaged and posted off this Macintosh inspired red rose mirror to its new home yesterday.


The design is a little tricky to execute - all those parallel leaded lines to get right and lots of fiddly little nooks to clean the polish out of, however, I do rather like it even if I say so myself!

It's quite appropriate that my most recent mirror sale is of a rose as I was planning to pop some photos of granny's roses on my blog today...









Just a small selection as Granny has loads! I like them in her garden but I'm not too keen to fill out my own garden with them - they're not very good at hiding the weeds and though I love pruning(!), rose prunings are too jabby!

Off now to fill up the paddling pool after several reminders from A who has been very patiently waiting...

Hi there! I love the mirror - it's beautiful! I'm especially interested as I recently had a go at making leaded stained glass panels. I can't really get to grips with scoring and cutting the glass though! Will need lots of practice!

Hi, thanks for dropping by!
I decorate my mirrors using specialist adhesive films & lead so there's no glass cutting (other than cutting the original mirror shape). It's a lot easier on the hands and a bit safer when using the spare room as a workshop! It's also good method for mirrors as it means the reflection remains flat.
