So i got the old Grandad Foakes rock tumbler out.
piece of history as F.Foakes himself got a
British Empire Medal for services to trade unions and service to geology.
I'm experimenting with tumbling coloured glass.
glass can be difficult to mosaic with as it is so smooth, glue can't 'key' onto the surface.
this will hopefully rough it up a bit, give it the effect of 'sea-washed' glass.
it's pretty damn noisy
hope it doesn't disturb the fish, living in the garage
lovely lady Daniella at new brewery arts
gave me tonnes of bits of coloured glass for free to experiment with
this is just the stuff left that i didn't sort out!
watch this space!
