Black Plate Glass Dragonfly with Thompson Enamels
I added white enamel (window glass compatible) to the wings and cobalt enamel to the body. The original glass was black plate glass that an auto window repair place was going to throw away. The auto window business referred to it as "bronzed glass." The enamels were fully melted by 1360 degrees. I placed the white enamel only on top of the wings since I wanted the texture and color of the original glass to be visible.
