No, the angel's name isn't Harold

Well, I bought a bunch of stained glass tonight for the first angel window: a night scene with the Angel of the Nativity. Background will be dark blue, gray, light blue (in layers). Star and accents on angel's clothing (belt, shoes) will be white. Angel's hair is charcoal, face champagne. Robe is streaky wine color, with cuffs and insets the color of a raspberry smoothie.

I've begun to teach the kids how to cut glass. I get the pattern copied tomorrow, so Sunday we start to cut out the pattern and cut the actual window glass. At the same time, I'm going to have to teach more kids how to cut glass, since last Sunday's attendance was awful.

I figure collinsmom, that_guy_zach, and I will attack the finished piece with soldering irons when it's ready. Then we take it to the pro, who helps me put on the border and bracing. And we'll be ready for installation!

Then we can start the two Resurrection witnesses' windows. I hope soon to be able to post pix in this LJ -- certainly by the time we get the first window finished!
