Stained Glass Weather Vane

I really enjoyed doing this small panel of a clients friends weather vane.
The process is using copper overlay that is bead soldered then set over the field of the panel. The window accents were done with paint fired in a kiln. I also used copper patina then overlapped that with black to get a nice weathered bronze finish on the geese and left the roof top a copper patina which is also using an overlay with copper and solder.
