This 13" x 13" (including the frame) panel was composed using David Alcala's framing process. According to the directions in his book, I assembled a frame for the work prior to beginning. I glued the tree and cut leaf shapes onto the fusible glass using Rave hairspray. After the glass was dry, I taped the fusible glass to the frame and selected the fine System 96 frit colors for the composition. Using his method, I poured the fine frit into the frame in the space between the fusible glass sheet and the frame itself. I manipulated some of the areas using a thin wire. When the composition was complete, the fusible glass was carefully removed from the frame, gently sprayed with a cheap aerosol hairspray, and fired on thinfire paper in a Skutt clamshell using the slow full fuse cycle. When cool, the panel was cleaned, turned over, and slow full fused again because I liked the other side better.
