Looney Leprechaun

In the old Irish folklore, the Leprechaun was a tiny male who inhabited the island of Ireland and owned a concealed crock of gold. The average height of these creatures is about 2 feet tall. Some believed if you caught one of these elves they would reveal the hiding place of this treasure. You must keep your eyes fixed upon one so that he can’t escape.

By now, you realize that I enjoy making pins for each and every holiday, and I tend to lean towards silly designs. This looney design fits right into they type of patterns I favor.

You don’t hear much about these elves during the year, but they grow in popularity around the St Patrick’s Day celebrations. Be sure to add this pattern to your St Patty’s Day projects.

  • Directions:

    1. Draw and using scissors cut the design.

    2. Position the paper pattern on the proper colorful glass and sketch close to the pattern with a permanent marker. Generously coat the traced design with beeswax or Chap Stick.

    3. A glass saw is required to cut out the pattern. Follow close to the line to retain the shape and all the meticulous particulars.

    4. Launder with dish soap and soak in clear water or use glass cleaner to delete all design and residue. Dry the pieces.

    5. Put together the parts on a prepared kiln shelf and put the shelf in the unit. Always grasp the glass by the side to avert fingerprints.

    6. Shut the lid or door. Start the unit.

    7. Observe the project at approximately 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. When glimpsing at your projects put on glasses with IR and UV shield.

    8. As soon as the piece possesses your sought appearance, turn off and unplug the oven. If the unit is put together with dense fire bricks, you can let it cool down by it’s self. On the other hand if it is assembled with ceramic fiber, the oven must remain on and supervised so that it doesn’t cool down any more than about 300 degrees Fahrenheit an hour.

    9. As soon as the pyrometer drops lower than 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the kiln can be opened.

    10. As soon as the glass has cooled down to room temperature, add a pin back. Stick on the pin back with a two part epoxy.
