Take your glass art in a new and exciting direction. Enamel painting on glass is a fun way to use clear glass to create unique, surprisingly detailed images. Opaque glass enamels have a bright luminosity and reflective quality all their own. Unlock the secrets to mixing Fusemaster high-fire opaque enamels with both oil and water mediums. Apply these luminous enamels to layers of glass, applying in reverse to common painting methods before firing to a finished piece. Students will begin with their drawing, sketch or reference photo and over three and a half days use Cheryl’s multi-stage techniques to create a piece of art. The focus of this class is on the technical skills so attendees will be able to take the knowledge gained from this class home to develop their own glass painting style. Cheryl also reveals her "secret" for doing 'blind' sgraffito drawings on glass, too!

**This class is for making painted Mushrooms**
Glass up your garden with these gorgeous and sturdy glass and copper mushrooms. Each student will make 6 large mushroom using Cheryl’s unique reverse glass painting process. As a bonus feature of this workshop, you will learn a basic mold making technique and make several molds to take home with you. Cheryl will also show you her easy technique for melting and using all of that extra clear scrap glass every fuser has laying around. Students will use high fire Easy Fire™ Glass Enamels to paint their designs in reverse on glass, learn how to solder the metal stem parts, and discover Cheryl’s unique, sturdy method in assembling and attaching the stems to the glass mushrooms.
These mushrooms make excellent gifts for the garden lover and can be personalized to your heart’s content. They are also popular craft/art show sellers and the perfect item to make for those upcoming spring and summer events!
