Yep you read that right this blog is about my brand new fused glass garden mushrooms. I watched this video on how to make fused glass mushrooms. Luckily for me I had several molds that would work. The artist gave really great directions and so I used a similar process for the green one. It’s a tad bit rough around the edges but the next time I slumped a new fused glass mushroom I reduced the temp so it’s more of a smooth texture.
The artist only did round ones but I didn’t see why the mushrooms had to be round so I did a fused glass pot melt and made it square. I think they both look great.
Here is a side view of my fused glass mushrooms. Considering I have a black thumb instead of a green thumb fused glass garden art e.g., fused glass mushrooms or fused glass flowers are perfect.
The other wonderful thing about these great fused glass mushrooms are the bottoms are PVC pipe so you can take the lid off and fill up the pipe with water. The top is only about 5 inches and the stem is about 1 1/2 ” in diameter and 5 inches long and go easily into the ground.
BTW the same artist showed another use for the fused glass mushrooms so I can’t wait to show you that application. Hopefully later this month!
In case you were curious I have about 4 more drying now. They are just so cool and perfect garden art. I hope you like them as much as I do!! Remember they don’t have to be green they can be any color or shape!
I hope you like the fused garden mushrooms as much as I do. If you have any questions about the fused glass mushrooms let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) I’d be happy to create some fused glass mushrooms to fit your needs.
