Jesus praying in the garden stained glass cookie

Yes, this took me a while to do.




I wanted to do something special for holy week - 
no bunnies or chicks or eggs in this post.
Just a quiet reminder of what Easter means.




I have been wanting to make a stained glass cookie for a while now.
It was a pretty intense process - I sketched the design with a food marker, did an outline in black, flooded in all my colors, re outlined all the black "lead" lines, and then went back in with a tiny paintbrush and added some food coloring in places to give it more variation in the "glass".  
This is not the type of cookie I would like to make by the dozens!

  6. Oh my Lord, Lisa...literally & figuratively! LOL that is one very special cookie!
    I am so impressed. You have far more patience that I. Can you shellac it to preserve it, like we used to do with the rolls & buns years ago? It would be nice to be able to display it year after year.

  9. Wow! Just amazing! I recently made a St. Patrick's Day faux stained glass project so I know how much work went into this inspirational cookie. Thanks so much for keeping to the "reason for the season". I saw your post at " A Stroll Thru Life" party.
