A sizable, chocolate Easter rabbit face design that is sure to be a delight for the holiday. This colorful bunny face is a little like a cartoon; it could be the Easter bunny.
This particular bunny rabbit has long tall ears, a cute little nose, adorable eyes and a joyful smile.
He can be tan, pink, brown or white, depending on your particular desire. I have decided to make mine light tan with pink ears and a pink nose. Use stringers and/or Glassline paints to add the tiny details.

1. Copy and cut the outline.
2. Rest the sections on the appropriate tint glass and sketch about the design with a permanent pen. Liberally cover the markings with beeswax or Chap Stick.
3. A glass saw is needed to cut out the design. Follow close to the line to preserve the outline and all the minute fine points.
4. Clean with soap and dip in clear water or use glass cleaner to strip off any pen marks and scum. Using a lint free towel, dry the items.
5. Pose the portions on a primed kiln ledge and place the shelf in the kiln. At all times grasp the glass by the border to avoid fingerprints.
6. Shut the top or access. Start the kiln.
7. Monitor the piece at nearly 1325 degrees Fahrenheit. Whenever glancing at your fused glass put on glasses with IR and UV shield.
8. When the glass possesses your wanted look, switch off and disconnect the oven. If the kiln is made with heavy fire bricks, you can allow it to cool off by it’s self. If however it is constructed with ceramic fiber, the oven must be kept on and observed so that it does not cool down any more than about 300 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.
9. Once the temperature drops under 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the oven may be opened.
10. Once the project has cooled down to room temperature, you can add a pin back. Hold on the pin back with a two part epoxy.
