I’ve been experimenting with ways to cover glass ball ornaments. This first ornament was covered with a solid color clay. Then it was decorated with backgroundless canes from the October 2014 issue of Cane Builder. Here is a video on how to reduce and apply canes with no background.
The second ornament is decorated with cane slices in a way that lets the glass show through. These are the same butterflies I used to decorated the wine glasses.
