Saffron 3-D Sitting Butterfly

Volume 28 - Issue 1

Free-form, freestanding butterfly sculptures with solder bodies and simple-cut glass wings. Sculpey molding material is used to help shape the solder for the body. Four simple cuts of glass are then foiled, overlapped, and attached to the body to create the wings. The butterfly is finished with solder-covered wire antennae. This project was constructed using the copper foil technique. This article was originally published on page 8 in the Spring 2012 issue of Glass Patterns Quarterly.
