Well, thanks to Miss Mollie, my room-mate’s dog, I had to put the Squared Rainbow window on hold & start a new one. The great porch protector does not like all this glass replacing the plastic — she needs a hole to jump out when the outdoor creatures are stirring.
She got caught pressing her nose against one of the three last plastic windows & within a couple days, her little hole was bigger & pieces were flapping in the wind. So, another window from scraps was born:
Then I can finish off the sky using mostly clear glass with a couple pieces of clear textured mixed in for variety.
I should have the soldering for both sides done this evening.
Perfect timing to putty it & leave it overnight to set a bit.
I got it from Opus Arts, along with a brighter blue & a sierra red. I’ll probably end up with a rainbow of pigment colours.
Since CityScape has a lot of green & clear glass, I thought this lighter green would suit this window.
I love puttying a window & I love seeing it on the leaded windows when they’re installed.
I see the putty in corners & along the lead came. Usually a whitish-cream or grey-black to match the lead, I think the bit of colour will be quite unusual.
Of course, over time putty turns greyish-black from weathering. I’m sure the coloured putty will also be affected — but I’m hoping it’ll be quite a few years before it happens.
Any way it goes, I’m quite happy with my little colour experiment.
Now to finish the middle panel & install the whole window.
