Glass Powder Sgraffito Frit Painting of a Tree and Bird Feeder
Day 2 of 30 asks we create a tree using just our fingers and a business card to manipulate glass powder.  This is a tree and bird feeder from my backyard.  I tried to add a heart in the negative space of the tree bark and a leafier texture to the bush.  Using a business card was amazingly helpful in creating crisp lines and I realized I could remove excess powder by just dabbing with a dry finger.
