This is a course to introduce you into the amazing world of fired paint on glass.

Suitable for complete beginners and perfect for those who wants to bring their stained glass practice toC another level.


On this course we'll cover he basis of working with glass paint: how to mix it, various techniques for using it to paint, and kiln firing.


During the first day each student will have the chance to paint several test to practice different techniques.  The second day we'll study the results and we'll paint a bigger project.


Throughout we'll emphasise the unique nature of painting when the light travels through (as opposed to bouncing off the survface of) your material!

Work from the second day will be fired overnight and can be collected the week after - or you can arrange it to be posted to your home.


This course enables you to take the next course "Silver stain and enamels"
