When it’s been quite a while since our last glass painting newsletter. so I need to start this one by wishing everyone a belated Happy New Year. (even though a we are now 2 months in).
The New Year brings a new section for the site: “Glass Painting Questions”. In this section we aim to cover some of the most frequently asked question. We intend to do this is quite “short” articles and videos so it doesn’t take ages to get the answer! If you have any questions you think would suit this new section then please do let us know. (email or in the comments section below this newsletter. It doesn’t nesesarily have to be something you need the answer for. Maybe it’s a question/answer you think others will find useful.
You will find links to the first two questions Below.
Glass Painting Questions. 1. Which Paint Brush to use for glass painting ?
This is a question I get asked a lot. Probably because I go on about the solid paint brushes so much! Actually I don’t believe the solid brush is the best in every circumstance as I explain in the article/video.
Working with the Thick Waterbased Glass Paints.
People mostly buy for making “Peelies” using the pipe and peel method. In fact we have a couple of articles on the site describing how to do this. In this article we show that these thick paints can also be used for other types of glass painting. Not only that but it is also possible to get quite a high standard of finish with them.
The article uses a couple of designs inspired by Clarice Cliff to decorate a glass vase. I think this is the first time I have shown Cliarice Cliff designs on the site but she is a designer I use quite a lot as I think her designs are suited to glass painting.
Glass Painting Questions. 2. Which Glass Paint Should I use?
Another question I get asked frequently. Different glass paints a better for different circumstances and this article/video shows which I prefer to use when.
Well we hope you’ve enjoyed the newsletter. We will be back soon with at least one more glass painting question and the next instalment of our free online glass painting course.
