Glass Painting projects and reviews.
A packed newsletter with both glass painting projects and reviews. The projects are a mandala style lightcatcher and a Celtic style box. The reviews are Pebeo oven bake paints and a light box. We also have a fun little article on additional things to do with peelable glass paints.
Don’t worry we haven’t forgotten about the glass painting course. The next part of that will be out soon. We are also hoping to release more glass painting designs in the next newsletter.
Using a LIghtbox for Glass Painting.
A simple review of a lightbox when it’s used for glass painting. The lightbox we review is a low cost LED one which produces quite a bright light. We found that a very simple alteration was required in order to make it suitable for us to use.
Mandala Style Lightcatcher.
A simple way to make a very proffesional looking lightcatcher. The project uses a large peel off from Je Je, one of 8 designs they do in this size.
This article looks at some slightly different things you can do with peelable glass paint such as teach maths, spelling and colours. Leave notes and play games. It isn’t a very serious article so if you are only into serious glass painting you might want to give this one a miss.
A Review of Oven Bake Glass Paints.
This is a review of Vitrea 160, an oven bake glass paint from Pebeo. This glass paint is useful particulaly if you want to paint “usable” glass item such a wine glasses.
A Celtic Style Glass Box.
A great project to make a small celtic style box. This is an “up-cycling” project as it it is based on a plastic chocolate box which we had left over from Christmas (minus the chocolates of course).
Well that is quite a lengthy newsletter. We will be back soon with more free designs, the next part of our glass painting course and more.
