Crushing the Glass
Sometimes I use a blender to crush the glass as it is faster, but there is a lot more waste and dust. It is also expensive because the glass and blades constantly need replacing.
Working Crushed Stained Glass
Many times I just use a picture to work from and make decisions or changes on content and color as I go. Sometimes I will draw an image as I go.
I will also add other material such as crystals, gems, polymer clay, and ceramics.
