Time in a Bottle
Creating this shaker was a nice experience. I was attempting to create a mosaic design with a lead glass look. In ways I think I accomplished my goal. I then proceeded to cover a glass bottle with this cane. I was successful and it looked good. That was some ten or more years ago. I moved and the bottles stayed wrapped up in paper packed away in my garage. When I rediscovered my shaker it had fine hair line cracks. Glass does expand and shrink in the elements. Now the question is how do I combat that problem when covering home decor items that might experience element changes. I have recieved some suggestions, but I think my helpers need to see the item to understand the problem. So here it is.
