First Firing Completed

Well as promised I did the first firing over night and they came out great. Will try to fire again today but no promises.
Here are the pictures
Stay tuned.
For those not sure of what we are doing. When Bob paints them he is using an acrylic enamel. The first firing burns off the binders which is what we see as the paint. So now these pictures are all actual glass. Will go through more firings to flatten out the raised areas and cap with clear to give it a depth that we prefer. Will then be made into jewelry.
And on a positive note as these are new products for us. We have sold several pieces, as well as alot of interest in the one I wear, which is of my dog Milley. So yes if they send us a pictures of their pets we will paint them.
