Flower of Hawaii
This flower of Hawaii pattern is a very clean and simple design. While traveling across the island of Hawaii, we discovered many various flowers of Hawaii. Most of these flowers were very simplistic in crisp, clean colors.
The yellow hibiscus is the official Hawaiian flower. They can range from the crisp white kukui blossoms to the soft pink cottage roses.
I wanted to overlap the petals, but they would not stay in place when placed inside the kiln, so I decided to make this a very straightforward design. The petals are a deep purple, while the center has almost the appearance of kukui nuts.

1. Print the outline on card stock.
2. Utilizing a set of shears, cut the outline.
3. Put the paper pattern on the appropriate glass shade.
4. Copy near the design with a permanent pen.
5. Generously plaster the markings with bees wax or chap stick.
6. Put the drawn glass on a Taurus and cut around the outline. Cut along the tracing so that the design is accurate.
7. Put the newly cut pieces in a container of clean water while cutting other pieces of glass. This process will make for an easier cleaning of the glass.
8. Clean each piece with detergent, a scrubby and a little water.
9. Dry the articles using a lint-free towel.
10. Enhance as desired.
11. Whilst gripping each of the items by the rim, assemble the items on a ready kiln shelf.
12. Pose the kiln shelf inside the kiln.
13. Close up the lid or access and turn on the oven.
14. Sporting eye glasses with UV and IR protection monitor the piece at about 1325 degrees Fahrenheit.
15. When the piece has the preferred look, take the project down to the proper annealing temperature and hold.
16. Switch off the kiln.
17. Permit the piece to cool down on its own.
18. Once the temperature goes down under 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the oven may be opened.
19. Add a pin back or fuse the project into a different venture.
