Glass Painting for the First Time
By Doris Sorensen
Glass painting can be as simple as sponging on a little colour to make a fun design, or as elaborate as texturing and frosting detailed patterns. You¿ll be amazed at what you can do, especially when guided by an introduction that answers all the basic questions: what do I need to get started, and what will it cost? What kinds of applicators and paint do I use? How do I apply a pattern, and achieve different effects, from 'drip and glaze' to reverse imaging? For every technique there¿s a project - like an Italian glass bottle with millefiori and a monogrammed box with stencilling. As you advance, combine colours on a Heart to Heart Canning Jar Lamp; co-ordinate different pieces of whiteware in a Funky Tea Set; and design with laydowns and one-strokes.
