    I have a hobby of drawing portraits

    My latest work in progress is a gecko. Rather than draw the outline on a tile or clear glass I decided to use a wooden template cut to shape. I then cut the stained glass, arranged in patterns and glued.

    I've yet to stick on the eyes (that's why they are not straight) and add some more tiles to its head. Then I grout! I hope to finish it next week.

    Thanks, Hannah. It looks a bit of a mess at the moment - luckily the grouting covers a multitude of sins. I also need to decide which color grout to use.

    I really like the colours in the bottom material. Maybe a pale blue grout to make the tiles pop.

    I've now grouted Gary... I decided to use yellow grout to enhance the colour of the glass tiles. I just need to finish his head and I'm done

    Yes, I was quite taken with the yellow. The teacher was trying to persuade me to use brown... nah .... I am pleased I went with by gut instinct.

    Gary is now complete. Because my granddaughter is fascinated by geckos and lizards I am giving her Garry for Christmas.

    My next project is the Tree of Life. I will cut the coloured glass sheets into shapes and stick onto glass. I am going to adapt this picture
