Gnome Stained Glass WIP's

I'm taking a adult and child stained glass class at the art center. I showed my progress a while back, but I have him almost done now! Tuesday night is our last class and I had to have it ready to solider. I've done stained glass several times now, so I brought the stuff home to finish it up.
First I had to grind, and grind, and grind! All those little bitsy pieces.

Then it was on to foiling, which is tedious, but not hard.

I'll use a patina on the solider to make it black. I think the black lines will look great. The foiling is copper. I'm tempted to head over to the art center and plug in a soldering iron to finish him up!

I LOVE HIM! Seriously cute stuff here. I know there must have been some under-the-breath swearing when grinding out that mouth and stache, but you did a rockin job!
Can't wait to see him finished.
