Reverse Painted Fused Glass with Opaque Enamels

with Cheryl Chapman

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, stunning and 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, working in reverse, the texturing style of grisaille and the stages of applying blended color background enamels and solid color image enamels.

We will begin with your drawing, sketch or reference photo and over three and a half days use Cheryl’s multi-stage techniques to create your piece of art.  The focus of this class is on the technical skills so you will be able to take your knowledge home to develop your glass painting style.  You will also learn a “secret” to creating precise sgraffito drawings.  Each student will complete an 8” piece as well as practice pieces.
