    By Jill Manley

    I bought this blue glass to make a stained glass fish (Dory from 'Finding Nemo') with copper foiling. It was the only royal blue glass in the whole of the UK that I could find, that was opaque! I was making the fish for a neighbour and he didn't want transparent glass.

    I am very pleased with the glass as it's a gorgeous colour on both sides. It was easy enough to cut. However, I found that tiny layers of glass would flake off the top & bottom surface of the cut edge. It was almost as though I had taken a potato peeler and just peeled a little bit off the edges here and there. It looked a bit chewed.

    When grinding I also discovered it was important to hold the glass absolutely straight against the grinder or else the glass would behave in the same way on the edges as when I was cutting. Fortunately where this happened, I was able to cover it with copper foil, so it wasn't a problem.

    I would like to take the blame for this light chipping on the surface of the edges when cutting & grinding. Perhaps I'm too heavy handed. Who knows? However, it was only the royal blue glass that behaved like this and not on the black, yellow or white opaque glass I ordered to make this stained glass fish.

    I've never come across glass doing this before.
