“Light My Fire” – Production Has Begun

The window I'm making for LibertyCon 2024 is on the table. I need to finish it early-ish due to it being on the program book cover, the t-shirts, and whatever else Brandy wants to put it on.

Original Design time: 15 hours

Next Phase: Cutting Pattern Creation

First, I blow up my original drawing to the size of 18x26.

I then trace it on grid graph paper in pencil, making adjustments as I go to accommodate the whims of my glassy brain.

I then trace it with a black Sharpie, so I can see my lines through the glass.

Then I compare my digital mockup and code my pieces to what color they'll be. This window had 18 different textures and colors of glass.

Then... I number it :)

"Light My Fire" currently comes in at 267 individual pieces!

Stay tuned for the next portion of “Light My Fire”

Stay Glassy!
