The Master Plan
We have two windows in the bathroom. They look like this.
Here is one of the panes of art glass in the 6 paned window frame.
The master plan is to try to replicate something similar to this in our counter top for the sink. This means that I am going to have to put some broken glass into the mold when I pour the concrete. Today was spent looking for pink colored glass. I already have two shades of green (yes one is a beer bottle!) so one more shade of green should do it. I may also throw in some crushed marble from scraps of tile that were used on the shower wall. I was able to buy two vases and a two tumblers giving me three shades of pink and one turquoise for $4.17. Add $1.00 for a bottle of imported beer which I happily drank and I have most of the glass needed. Tomorrow I can search Goodwill and some thrift stores for one piece of pale green glass. Then I get to smash it all! I still have to figure out how to do the black lines though.
I have already got the mold made for the fireplace hearth and the pieces ready for the counter mold. Since I have no clue if the master plan will work I plan to make some test pieces before the main pour. If all fails then I resort to producing pieces that look like our kitchen counter. So the worst case scenario isn't all that bad. I also plan to make the fireplace surround for the bathroom out of polished concrete so today I ordered THIS BOOK.
You know what? I got to mention Beer in a houseblog again!
