Sorry about the repeat! You are right it is hard to keep track,
especially if you have moments of brain cramps.
About the plate glass, it is from the local glass store or possibly a
good home center (Home Depot or Lowes). I assume a glass artists at some
point tested to see how it works and was successful. The turquoise frit
would be great. You can also use copper wire along with the frit. It
gives an interesting look that just melts into the glass. Would be
interesting to have the kids shape the wire into a face or figure
drawing as well as draw into the frit. Could incorporate quite a few
disciplines with this project!
