Paint It Backwards – Reverse Painting Class - New !
Carol Doherty & Lori Soderberg
Come and learn the hottest “old” technique in town! In this three-day class, we will explore the techniques of Sgraffito and enameling to create three hand-painted, fused glass pieces. Students will use reverse painting techniques and colorful enamels to create two 6” square pieces and one 8” square piece.
Dates & Times: Saturday & Sunday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Wednesday 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Bring: See syllabus
Cost: $250.00 ~ Limit: 10 students
Each student will trace and matte a piece of clear glass over a black and white design of their choice. Note: don't worry if you don't understand "trace" and "matte" - that is part of what you will be learning. Sample designs will be available, or students are welcome to bring their own. The size of the project will be 8" x 10". Multiple layers of paint will be applied and the piece will be fired with the goal of creating depth and shading in one firing. By the end of the class, attendees should feel comfortable adding paint to any project. Students will understand the products and the process involved in creating painted projects.
