projects, but also has a "tutorial" to get you started on making your
own original papercuttings as well. This book happened to be in our
public library which is why I read it first, but there are lots of
other books as well, which you can probably get through Interlibrary
Loan if they're aren't in your public library. I generally don't buy
any books on a particular craft until I'm REALLY sure I'm REALLY
serious about it.
Thank you for the welcome. I do my "paper"cuts in
brass, usually about 12 gauge or thicker. My glasswork
is usually in miniature (no ornaments for me) because
my torch doesn't give off enough heat for anything
larger than about two inches long. I've got a few
ideas I am playing with though.
Thank you for the welcome as well. I'm looking to
embed my designs directly into the glass when it is
molten. Etched glass is fun, but just not enough
challenge for me as an artist. It's not art unless you
get to burn something... **grin**
