tiny yet important

today in class I got a little tiny glass sliver. This has happened before, and it's amazing how much it hurts. We are working on our enamel unit and I enameled a puffed square shape. Before I did that, though, I made a bunch of little glass shards to layer onto the bigger piece. I did that by melting granulated glass into a thin sheet on top of a piece of metal. Then when you want your bits and pieces, you bend the metal and the glass breaks off into pieces. Those pieces can then be used as what I like to think of as sprinkles. I was very happy to get all that done, it feels like a large portion of the work for this assignment is now done, and I mostly now have assembly to accomplish.
