Led by master glass artist Bert Weiss, this three-day glass painting technique class features multiple projects designed to give the student a better understanding of glass painting and its enormous potential in fused glass. Bert's techniques allow you to use vibrant colors without worrying about glass compatibility. The course will show you how to mix metallic oxide colorants with glass and create oil paint like-washes.
This course is suitable for all levels of experience. Students do not need to bring anything, all the tools and materials are provided for the course - just wear suitable old clothes and sturdy shoes... oh, and bring a lunch!
Bert Weiss studied traditional glass painting with Albinus Elskus and has developed and improved his techniques for the past 40 years. Bring any questions you may have had about glass fusing; within 10 minutes Bert should be able to troubleshoot! Cut off sign-up date is Jan 30, 2012.
