♥ Doing what I create!

Saturday, January 2, 2010


Here are a couple pics of my newest Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) art on glass I have created.

This one is SR EOD BADGE done with black leading paint then filled in with silver and the background has the American flag. I also put a small Clear Rhinestone in the middle of the star on the badge.

Pretty cool.

The frame is wood and painted black first then silver on top to give it a nice effect to match the badge.

This measure 9 1/2 x 12 and will have a saw tooth hanger the back to hang.

I love painting on glass using several types of glass paints.

This one is currently up for auction on ebay:
The Meaning of the EOD Badge
The Wreath
found on the Master Badge is Symbolic of the achievements and laurels gained minimizing accident potentials through the ingenuity and devotion to duty of its members. It is in memory of those EOD officers and men who gave their lives while performing EOD duties.

The Bomb
Copied from the design of the World War II Bomb Disposal Badge, the bomb represents the historic and major objective of the EOD attack, the unexploded bomb. The three fins represent the major areas of nuclear, conventional and chemical/biological interest.
Lightning BoltsSymbolize the potential destructive power of the bomb and the courage and professionalism of EOD personnel in their endeavors to reduce hazards as well as to render explosive ordnance harmless.

The Shield
Represents the EOD mission - to prevent a detonation and protect the surrounding area and property to the utmost.
