We supplied Peelable Glass Paint, art materials and boxes of old glass jars, although some brought along their own glass items to paint. One talented lady brought a sheet of glass that was destined for the recycling bin and turned it into a piece of art with our glass paint. With a paint brush and imagination she re-created an impressive countryside scene.
Another lady brought in a lantern and created a beautiful stained glass effect by first painting black lead lines in traditional diamond patterning using a card template. Once she had finished painting on all of the lines the first panel was dry so she could then start filling in the diamonds with a variety of translucent Peelable Glass Paint colours.
There was a great mix of all ages that came up with some great designs. One thing I love about these workshops is seeing people experiment with different techniques and this session was no exception. One lady perfected a marbling technique that got others hooked on the process. Once you get the hang of it this is a very simple but effective way of creating some great pieces that sit up against fine pieces of glass art. As soon as we can we will create a video to demonstrate the process and share it with you.
Peelable Glass Paint is water-based, has minimal VOC and low odour, and is non-toxic, making it a great paint to work with no matter what the project.
