Been working very hard.....

on new and interesting techniques and all will be revealed soon....

I have been using these....

But not on glass....

I dropped them onto a canvas which has been sprayed with inks whilst the ink was still wet.....

Because the glass stain is heavier than the ink you can almost do a marbling effect.....

Then I used them to produce this.....

Which is my entry into Out of a Hat Challenge Blog....which is FACES

Hope you all had a great Easter!  

Thanks for looking

Am sure I have some glass stains somewhere - will have to try them out on wet canvas and get them used as I don't tend to take them out these days. Thanks Cathryn.
I love the face you have done - what a beautiful creation. You are so talented Cathryn.
Hugs, Neet xx

Hi Cathryn. I have visited your blog several times now and read many of the posts. You have had me laughing till I cried more than once! You are a delight and you have me wishing I could come and spend an afternoon. The story of you and your friend peering in the window of what you thought was a public establishment only to discover it was a private home - too funny. Thanks for sharing in your special way - you are a hoot! I love your artwork - especially the faces you have done. Very expressive.
