I have never made a giant glass chandelier... But seeing how it is done is interesting.

"Wow, it's bigger than I expected!" I hear people say this all the time... 

Why is the perception of an object's size often different from the object's 'actual' size? My recent post has some thoughts and tips to better visualize the actual size of an object... Because size does matter.

Movie themed pop corn birthday cake
My daughter wanted a movie themed birthday cake. I don't bake very often, and have never made fondant icing before... This was my noble effort. Making mini marsh mellows look like popcorn took forever... So this will probably be my first and last pop corn cake.

+Brian Fields this was a test render and comparison to the real glass piece. On this particular render, I have a white plane behind the model to reflect light into the glass... This is a similar trick I would use while photographing  my actual glass work.

I'm finally starting to get the material set-up closer to the look of my actual frosted glass sculptures. I used actual glass pieces for reference.

I also made a side-by-side comparison test image of the real glass blue piece and the 3d model version, which I can post if anyone is interested in seeing how it looks next to the real thing.

Glass Blowing Truck
A friend of mine, Kalen Erion, built a mobile glass blowing truck. I stopped by to help test it out on its maiden run... Pretty impressive!

It took Kalen about 4 years to finish it... Well, these type of things are never really finished. Anyway, he has more photos of the truck being built on his Facebook page -
