More Aurora Ravens ~

More Aurora Series in the Ravens ~
Are you sick of it yet?

Each piece is different. 
Even if I use the same powders the watercolor effect looks different.
Glass is a liquid so as it heats up in kiln & melts it moves around a bit and flows
together creating a wash of color.

I've tried to cool the process down & not fire to a full fuse as a way
to get a little more texture in the glass.

That also seems to keep the images a bit crisper.

The ravens above are slightly more transparent probably due to less
powdered glass.  It's hard to judge how much has been sifted
onto the blank unless I weigh the glass first.

I think that's an unnecessary step.
No time for that!
