Fused Glass Space Ship

Another project combining steel with fused glass.  The steel background is 22” by 28”.  It consists of 1/8” steel plate with ¾” by 1/8” steel strap welded around the perimeter.  The fit was not perfect, but I was able to bridge the gap with welding.  Sometimes it takes a second attempt to eliminate the welding flaws.  The surface was ground eliminating the mill scale leaving a shiny surface.  The surface was painted using a transparent air brush paint.  Then multiple coats of DuPont ChromaClear were sprayed on over the entire surface leaving a high gloss finish.
