I got an idea for a piece I want to do but wanted to do a proof of concept/prototype first and experiment with depth.
Here are my doodling's so far.
I started out with a piece of Bullseye 2mm translucent and covered it with frit and confetti. The confetti is covered with clear frit. I then contour fused it.
Here is the result. I flipped it over so that the frit I had fused is now on the bottom.
No I had thought I had taken more pictures of some of the subsequent layers I added but I guessed I spaced it. I added two more layers using clear frit, confetti and some mica powder just to see how it would look doing a contour fuse for each additional layer.
The results are, well, experimental.
I could have done without the mica inclusions plus I sprinkled a little bit of translucent orange just to see how that would look. I could have done without that as well. The illusion of depth worked looks pretty decent with the sun and the mountains/hills. It’s kind of hard to tell from the picture though.
I’ve got a couple of more layers to add. It’s been really helpful to create a mini picture to figure out what will work best. Final results will be posted (when I get around to finishing this).Blogger Labels: depth,piece,prototype,Bullseye,pictures,layer,inclusions,mountains,hills,frit,confetti,mica
