Last night should have been the last stained glass class, but because of the nature of our projects (and the fact that she has nothing better to do next week) Dana will open the shop so we can come back and wrap up. At least the other guy, Robert will finish. I am likely going to bring mine home to finish. This was the progress I made last night - I took off my Art Director Hat in the name of time and Dana helped me cut the last of the background. Then I started grinding. This process starts from the outside and works in - as you can see here, the border has tightened right up, and the circle is pretty good, and the blue background is coming together. Dana's not worried about my tolerances, but the daughter of the machinist is. Grinding is a slow, tedious process that leaves you covered in a fine glass grit, leaves your work soggy, and leaves the pieces much more fitted than just cutting. My project incorporates a number of complex curves, which you can cut only so close (being a beginner glass cutter) so it means more time at the grinder. But the sheep is coming along well, and I'm please, for the most part, at it's fitting. Bonus class next week!
