Pink Glass..... well, isn't!
While Elizabeth was taking her nap today I decided to start breaking the glass I have acquired for the countertop project. Not having a hammer handy I placed the glass in an empty kitty litter bucket and started to whack it with the butt of a matchlock musket.
The green glass IS green. However, the pink glass (made in China of course) is actually clear glass with a pink translucent plastic coating designed to fool you. If I can get the pink glass to lay the right way up in the mold this won't be too much of a problem otherwise the pink will get ground off when I polish the concrete. I'll have to run my test before I break the other pink vase unless I get myself too worked up about it and smash it for the thrill. Back to the thrift stores in the morning I guess. I will pour the samples on Thursday so the results won't be in until next week. I have an idea for the black streaks that might work. We shall have to wait and see...
Time for another BEER. Better make it a firkin!
