CREATING DIMENSION – LIVE WORKSHOPS
Want to create thick glass panels that have great dimension and depth?
In this live and online Master Class, I will teach you how to apply enamel to glass layers, then stack and fuse these layers into solid panels. This new online format is different from my 5-day in-person workshop – the same content will be covered, but in 4-hour online sessions on weekends.
This is not a webinar! With small, intimate groups of students, you are free to interact with Paul and with each other, ask questions verbally, and get help with problems. It’s fully interactive! You will complete exercises during the class, and start projects as well, while Paul is online to provide guidance and feedback. You’ll complete each project on your own time during the week. Further help is available during the week either using optional, scheduled “office hours”, or by using a private Facebook group. A total of 36 hours of live instructor time is provided in this workshop.
Topics covered include:
- design and image selection
- composition and layout
- maximizing the sense of depth and dimension in your work
- discussion of enamels and how they respond to fusing temperatures
- painting medium and tools
- how to mix and apply enamels
- fusing schedules
- bubble control
- kiln loading instructions
- finishing techniques
The emphasis of this workshop is the processes involved in creating thick panels that include great dimension. It is not primarily a painting workshop, however many painting tips and techniques are also provided, and the many demos show you the way. Although drawing and painting experience is helpful, it is not required. Prior kiln-work experience is recommended, however.
Students will complete several initial exercises and 2 complete projects during this workshop, and are encouraged to choose images for compositions they would like to use for these projects. Important image selection guidelines will be provided prior to class.
In addition, I’m adding a bonus for this online workshop! For the first time, I’ll reveal the products and techniques I use to create my beautiful, ethereal “foggy landscapes”.
