Description: Students will complete three projects from start to finish including demonstrations, open discussion and one-on-one assistance. The following painting techniques will be explored in depth: tracing, matting and shading. Also discussed and compared will be the many different mixing agents used in glass painting and their benefits.
The use of enamels, which adds so much to stained glass projects, will then be taught in detail including the use , mixing and application of some of the many enamels that are currently available.
Mr. Berberich will set up a private Facebook page open only to the students enrolled for the Introduction to Enamels workshop. This will give students a head start and allow for pre-preparation of the projects, materials and any other topics students view as important to cover.
